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.

I was unable to get the shn component working with konqueror 3.4/3.4.1 and kwavencoder 3.3. Why not roll it all into the one app?

Please redownload it in case you tried to install by clicking install.sh. There used to be a bug in that script.

Do you have the binary installed?
I don't do all in one app because shorten and other formats are exotic. 99% of all people end up with useless service menus because they don't have the binaries installed.

I don't know how "well" the code is written, but is there any chance that it could get included in kde in the same manner as the image-conversion is? and is it possible for this to, perhaps at compile-time, check for the tools, and only enable the functionality that is possible with the installed tools / selected by the user?

this is an interesting thing that is needed in kde.

Hi, I suggest you make your menu more similiar (identic?) to the convert images that already exist in kde.

that is, rightclick on any audio file, select "actions -> convert to ->" and then choose a filetype.

that's how I'd like it, a well used and common interface.

how well do this work with id3/ogg metadata?

I will think about presenting menu entries without source data type. By changing to this method it is easy to break stuff.
Following meta data are kept: artist, title, album, year, comment, tracknumber. Genre would mean too much effort for too little importance.

I see in the new screenshot that the menues are as I prefer them, would asking for lowercase letters be too much? (make the system identical to image-convert menues =)

I must stress also, that genre is important, at least for me. perhaps a simple implementation that copies the genrestring as a string to those formats that support it, and drops it for the rest? (or perhaps even better, a list of the mp3 genre ID's and ag with copy from id->string upon conversion?)

There are so many image convert menus, I don't know which one you mean. As AAC, FLAC and MP3 are abbreviations, uppercase makes sense. Kim also uses uppercase for TIF, GIF etc.

So you send me a translation list for ID3V1, V2 and ogg metadata and I will add this genre translation.

Great, I'll start looking for that list. The image menu I mean is the default one in kde3.4.

where do I send the list? (I'll send you a screenshot of the standard menu as well, so you can see how it's done with images by default)

Great job, I really like this little app. It just converted one of my most favourite songs which was 7.3 MB in MP3 to 3.7 MB in OGG, and still crystal clear sound. Simply awesome!

I suppose I should not mention that you can use mplayer to read .wma and .ra and convert them?

Something like..

for i in *.wma ; do mplayer -vo null -vc dummy -af resample=44100 -ao pcm -waveheader $i && lame -m s audiodump.wav -o "`basename "$i" .wma`.mp3"; done

Maybe you want to contact zast for this. He already did wma to mp3/ogg in content=19789. So maybe he can also add ra to mp3/ogg, so I don't have to duplicate his work.

This is a good idea and all, but is there another way to display that information, other than through konsole. Can a kdialog pop up, or that window that shows the output from an "Execute Shell Command" in konq filebrowser mode. Just curious, to see if there's a way to just have the output spit out on a qt/kde window, and then just have a button to close it.

Can we go from flac to mp3 in one step as far as the user is concerned instead of having to convert flac to wav and then wav to mp3? I know the program still has to do the two steps but you should be able to save all the tag info from the flac and use it in the mp3...or did I miss something?

OK, you got me! I suppose I have to do flactomp3/ogg/aac as well... Then there should be all combinations.

Just got an ipod shuffle...anyway to support converting TO AAC? FAAC already exists.

OK, I'll see what I can do about this. In principle it's easy if faac can do encoding and decoding.

So I hope you have all programs installed and in $PATH. Please check it with "which oggdec" and so on.
If you installed locally, try installing globally.
Next thing is to try the scripts from the commandline: "anytowav file.mp3" and so on.
