I was spending some time in the Ubuntu Forums this evening and thought I would share a few questions that I ran into. For those of you looking for a high-level tutorial this isn’t it, but its a good tip for anyone.
If you need to convert audio formats there are a few options for you. I have long used soundconverter to go between just about any format out there. I recently even converted a very large .mp3 collection to .ogg.
To install soundconverter simply use:
Applications > Add/Remove > Search:"soundconverter"
sudo aptitude install soundconverter
I hope this helps. Now that you’ve got a converter why not switch your .mp3 over to the FOSS .ogg format? 🙂 Note: you may need the appropriate codecs to read / convert these audio formats. You might want to check out my previous post How to install multimedia codecs.
