Ok...I'm having trouble with the diff files...so the files are here: http://www.jabster.net/amarok/

main.js & en.js

en.js:
changed to "const LANG_CTconvert="Convert FLAC/OGG files to MP3 (slow)";"

main.js:
-changed function name from "convertFlacToMp3" to "convertToMp3" since it does both now
-test program lines: added check for ffmpeg; changed error messages a bit.
-relevant function conversion line: "pConvert.start("ffmpeg -y -ab 128k -ac 2 -i \"" + strSource + "\" \"" + strDest + "\"");"

Seems to be working fine.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Ooh! Just saw this yesterday!

Awesome!

Works great for the FLAC files!

However (you know there's gotta be a however) ;-) ....I wanted it to convert OGG's as well.

But, now that I have a starting point, I am able to use my Amazing Programming Skills(tm) to modify your code! :-)

So, I have now modified it to convert FLAC and OGG to MP3s!

I also modified your code to stop using flac and lame, and to use ffmpeg instead. Not really sure what's better for general distribution tho. Both lame and ffmeg (with mp3 support) need to be installed from outside the "official" repos. But ffmpeg seems to be much quicker.

I will try send the updated files over to you later today. I'll try and make diff files for you.

Thanks again!

Hi.
I'm running Mandriva 2010.0 with the PLF repos. KDE SC 4.4 and amarok 2.2.0.

thanks again,

Hi.
Would it be possible to add a "Convert to MP3 and Copy" option?

Problem is that my wife's MP3 player only plays OGG & MP3, not flac, which is a hefty part of my collection. So if she could just create a playlist in amarok, and then select convert & copy, she would have a really easy time of loading up her mp3 player. Just hard-code to 128 bitrate probably.

If you need "encouragement" let me know, and I'll see what I can do. (I'd try and do it myself but I have very limited programming ability.)

thanks,
