    The script on the first page worked fine for me from inside the orig wma folder (I'm using Hardy 8.04).
    Thanks and respect!

    It worked very good for me. Here is a copy and paste of how it looks.

    Code:
    for i in *.wma; do ffmpeg -sameq -i "$i" "`basename "$i" .wma`.mp3"; done

    I guess 48 kb/s in .wma is about the same as 64 kb/s in .mp3

    Exclamation Re: HOWTO: convert wma to mp3

    New to Ubuntu from XP, and I have about oh... 45Gigs of WMA files, do you see my problem? Well I tried the actions recommended in the beginning of the thread and got as far as the "right click" when I do right click I see the script option with "WMA to MP3". When I select this though nothing happens, I mean an "output" folder is created and I press OK confirming is has just recoded the files but theres none in the output folder? If you have a clue how to help me here I would truly appreciate it...

    I downloaded a supported program (Perl Audio Converter) and it works fine. Keeps tags, recurses directories, very professional. It's got several releases and so people have clearly put a lot of time and thought into making it work well.

    Because I use dialup at home I got a small download using the no-install-recommends option like this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends pacpl

    Update: HOWTO: convert wma to mp3

    This thread is out of date! It's now super easy and even a Linux cretin like me can make it work. Just go into Applications, open the "Ubuntu Software Centre", search for "Sound Converter", download the program with this name. Then use it (also find it in Applications, guess where).

    I'm amazed how well this works. Better than any proprietary alternative I've tried, super fast, loads of settings and easy (see Screenshot attachment). Now I see why it's called Linux for human beings.
