    Re: audioconvert! the new super script to convert audio files!

    fut21. i think you need to get lame. try and follow koybe's hint. let me know

    koybe. what you need to do is this. edit the script with your favourite text editor, such as vim, or gedit, and add a line on a newline just before version="0.3.0". add this line:

    set -x

    after that, run the script from console on an audio file, catch the output, and send it to me via email you can do somethin' like this:

    ./audio-convert filename.mpc &> logname

    run the program as you usually would. when it's done, send me logname via email my email address is on the freshmeat page. your issue seems to be a little cryptic, so that output will help me out in solvin' it if it's too hard, please ask questions and i'll try to answer them

    and for all of those the script worked for, thankyou very much for reportin' it! great feedback like yours keeps me goin'. along with wantin' to make one of the best audio scripts out there

    ciao!

    Hi thetroublemaker

    I have some problems converting .wma to .mp3, it seems that it's not working. I have mplayer installed, i joined the terminal output.
    Hope the problem could be solved, i already used the script to convert FLAC to mp3 or ogg with success.

    Thank you for your effort, great script !

    Re: audioconvert! the new super script to convert audio files!

    I installed audio convert 3.0 on breezy, with all dep raccomended, and the script don't convert wav to mp3. When I select the file to convert, script ask me if I like to compile mp3 tag; I answer not and in one second windows disappeare, and another window advise me that the conversion is ok, but I don't have mp3 file converted. Another problem is convert ape files to another; script advise me that I don't have codec called "mac"; where I download it? Thanks, Hi!

    Silvio.

    Re: audioconvert! the new super script to convert audio files!

    thetroublemaker, i make some tests and have a look to the script. The problem i have with your script with flac to mp3 and also other conversion is due to the fact that the windows which allow to specify the quality does not appear and then the parameter $quality is not set and the lame command failed because of the lack of this parameter :
    Code:
    lame -m auto --preset '/mnt/zik/new_zik/Ernest Ranglin/In Search Of The Lost Riddim/01 - D'\''accord Dakar.wav' '/mnt/zik/new_zik/Ernest Ranglin/In Search Of The Lost Riddim/01 - D'\''accord Dakar.mp3'
    LAME version 3.96.1 (http://lame.sourceforge.net/)
    
    Error: You did not enter a valid profile and/or options with --preset
    So i think the main bug come from the "choose quality" step which sometimes not occurs.

    In my case i solved all my problems fixing the mp3 quality to 224 (line 264) because i always want this quality :
    Code:
    if [ "$1" == "mp3" ]
    then
    	quality=224
    fi
