Description:

audiokonverter is a service menu (and also a commandline utility) to easily convert from MP3, OGG, AMR, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WMA, RealAudio, Musepack, Wavpack, WAV and movies to MP3, OGG, M4A, WAV and FLAC in Konqueror by right-clicking on them. It needs ffmpeg/avconv, oggenc, oggdec, faac, faad, flac, mplayer and lame to work. id3lib is optional for full functionality. Also optional are vorbis-tools and metaflac for handling other metadata. See README how/where to get that software.
Be sure about needed software when installing prebuilt packages!

Please vote for "good" if you like the program. There are many downloads with each release, but only a few votes.

Added support for KDE5

I'm on openSUSE 11.1 and it does not work for me at all.

I do get the possibility to convert in the Dolphin menu ,but nothing happens.

It also looks as it can handle only single file conversion and not batch conversion of a number of files in a number of directories? Is that a correct assumption?

How did you install it? I guess you are missing helper programs because you installed some rpm.

It can even convert directory trees.

So you could choose a file, but the spaces in the file name caused problems? Normally they don't. I don't know why it does not work on your system.

Anybody else using it on OpenSuse 11.1?

Yes, I could chose the file in the GUI.

Don't worry to much. I'm now running the old KDE3 soundKonverter and it seems to work well.

The two program teams should consider working together as the goal seems the same. Maybe review each others code or something similar.

Thanks for taking time to look at it

Please download and unpack the current tarball and try:
sudo ./installKDE4.sh --suseinstall

I already mailed the opensuse maintainer. I will test his package.

Now I installed Opensuse on another HD. There are a lot of differences which I am beginning to realize. Also the opensuse rpm did not add kdialog from KDE4 as dependency, which makes it hard to operate. Hopefully 5.8.2 fixes a lot of these issues.
I cannot test on all distributions. :-(

Thanks!
It's sad that the distributions differ so much....

Is there anything that can be addressed towards openSUSE? I have been doing volunteer testing for openSUSE so I'll be glad to address any issues that might make it easier to support openSUSE.

The script is the same.
Only the installation in KDE differs due to changes in KDE.

Thanx for the reply!

I Installed it from the Pacman repository as linked in the KDE-apps section. I can run conversions with other tools.

It might be that there is something wrong with my PATH: /home/birger/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin

Should there not be something about ls /usr/share/kde4/bin/ in the path? At least is that where the audioconvert is installed.

hey,

output of
kde4-config --path services is

edited the installKDE4.sh and put between /share/ and servies, mimelnk etc. an kde4/

installation worked perfect

Where did you do this? At the very end?

What does "kde4-config --prefix" say?

I detect a problem with the paths for opensuse with kde4. The correct path for kde4 is /usr/share/kde4. I modify the option --suseinstall with this
"--suseinstall" )
mkdir -p /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
mkdir -p /usr/share/kde4/share/mimelnk/audio/
mkdir -p /usr/share/kde4/bin/
install -m 644 $DESKTOPFILES /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
install -m 644 $MIMEFILES /usr/share/kde4/share/mimelnk/audio/
install -m 755 $SCRIPTS /usr/share/kde4/bin/
exit 0
;;
This work perfect in openSuse 11.1 with KDE4.2.1

Hello, a "problem" you may or may not care to bother with (if you haven't already addressed it and I missed seeing it). Although it might seem redundant I wanted to install soundKonverter in order to use its normalizing functions, but it wouldn't install with audiokonverter present - something about a "conflicting pipe" in a .desktop file for wavpack. This is with Kubuntu Hardy, KDE 3, and the ubuntu deb provided here. I'll look for another normalizing solution and continue to use this great tool.

This is useful and very well done, I've put in a positive vote.

Please try the manual install of audiokonverter then or show me the exact error message, so I know what it is about. Your problem can be solved, I am sure.

I did a manual install by copying the files into the service menus directory but the menu is popping up on .ogg files, at least on Dolphin, but I didnt check out why yet.

thank you for your effort anyways.

So where is the service menu directory for all users on ubuntu for KDE4? Things have gotten non-standardized with KDE4 :-(

I download mppdec on musepack.net and I create /usr/share/service/ServiceMenus/ and /usr/share/mimelnk/audio/.
I run installKDE4.sh then I move /usr/share/service/ServiceMenus/* in /home/user/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
(I do not know what to do with /usr/share/mimelnk/audio/* ?)

Now, it's work! :))

Thanks for your feedback!
I would like to improve kde4install with your help.
Can you tell me the output of
kde4-config --type services ?

You can also reach me easier via

They don't appear for me unless I add `,all/allfiles` (or another specific type) after the KonqPopupMenu/Plugin entry. In other words, the MimeType section info could be moved to the Servicetype and it should work properly.

This is on an archlinux system, so your results could be different.
