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.

Please redownload the file. According to a tutorial on kde.org, it must be MimeType, separated by semicolons.

I figured I'd mention I have this sucker working with KDE4 as well; all you have to do is...

1) Put the files audioconvert.desktop and audiofrommovie.desktop into $KDEROOT/services/ServiceMenus/ (example: on Fedora, that's /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/).

2) Edit both of them to add Type=Service to the [Desktop Entry] menu.

3) Add KonqPopupMenu/Plugin to the list of ServiceTypes; this tells Konqueror & Dolphin that this is an Action Menu in the new version.

That's it. You don't even have to patch the scripts, since they'll use the KDE4 kdialog instead of the KDE3 one, no problem. These adjustments will get the menus showing up in the right-click menus like they do in KDE3.

Thanks for your input! I added installKDE4.sh and created desktop files for KDE4. Feedback is highly welcome.

No problem. This is one of the most useful - and in my case, most used - extensions around.

I wish there was more support for it besides that small README. I use FC9, installed all the required files before installing this app, and it doesn't work with either gnome or KDE for me. With just the little bit in the README that came with the file, I've got no earthly idea why not.

I am sorry to hear that.
First, it will not work in GNOME, this is kde-apps.
Second, I don't have any idea what else to write into the documentation. I guess you installed it for yourself, but .kde/bin is not in your PATH in FC9. When installing globally, install.sh finds out the path of kde by kde-config and installs audiokonverter there. Then it will enrich your service menu as audiokonverter is a service menu.
There is a mail address in the README, not without a reason. Use it. I cannot test on all distributions, sorry. And if people do not complain, I cannot improve audiokonverter.

This is a very good product. In fact, I should be more positive, it is excellent!

This is one of the best apps ever. I use it all the time to digitize my music collect, as I use an Ark Linux / Amarok computer as a juke box / Multimedia center.

Thanks lad!

I'd like to use it in dolphin, but I'm not sure quite where to put all the files.

Please try adding this line to install.sh in the last block with similar lines:

install -m 644 $DESKTOPFILES $PREFIX/share/apps/dolphin/servicemenus/

If it works, I can add it to the release.

and install again, of course.

Well, it put the desktop files in /usr/share/apps/dolphin/servicemenus, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Ok, when I copied the 2 .desktop files over to ~/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus , then it works. Thanks!

I really like the new addon services for video. They're very useful. This kservicemenu continues to be one of best, and that's saying a lot consider how fantastic most of them are. Well done lad.

Very nice tool!

Though when I try extracting audio from a .flv-file, the resulting mp3/ogg is always a bit too short, there are always several seconds cut off from the back. Is that a known issue? Using Suse 10.3 & KDE 3.5.7

Thx, Tobi

I just tested this with a 13:33 video, everything's there. The video stop with sound and the WAV and the MP3 stop at the same point.
Can you show a link to a youtube video with problems?
Which MPlayer version do you have? I have 1.0rc2.

That's the .flv I was trying to convert. The mp3 still falls some 15 seconds too short when I use audiokonverter on it. Tried downloading it with the firefox download-helper plugin instead of youtube-dl, but it made no difference. ffmpeg worked, though.

Same here, though the missing piece is just about one or two seconds, due to shorter length I guess.

http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=vmihhmb_h7M
Tried another one by chance and had no problems with audiokonverter on that one whatsoever. Don't have a clue why, didn't change a thing.

Mplayer versions's the same.

Hi Tobi,

version 5.7 is on the way. It features a fix to your problem (MPlayer was the cause, being replaced by ffmpeg) and in addition the possibility to dump the audio track of a video to a file, so no quality loss there.

Does it happen with all flv files? I have to check this, but probably I will not be able to do much apart from seeking another program to extract audio from video other than MPlayer.

One of the most useful apps there is. Convenient well made. I think it gets lots of votes, however I've noticed that when I vote on something, it never seems to go up. Perhaps the voting function is broken?

I do have one question, the install keeps telling me I don't have mppdec installed, I do, its in /usr/bin. What version is it looking for?

Thanks
