tutorial: Using ffmpeg to batch convert cd audio files to mp3

Sep 10, 2010, 22:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Erik for this link. ]

"I guess quite a few joomla administrators regularly run into batch conversion issues. You have an entire folder of files in the one format, and now you need the same files, but in another format.

"Today I ran into a batch conversion issue in a surprising way. My wife came home with a "Made in China" MD-602 set of speakers that accepts input from a mobile phone, a phone memory, or a USB memory stick. She wanted to play an audio CD on the device, by copying the songs to a USB memory stick. So, I grabbed the audio CD, and I saw that the tracks on an audio CD are supposedly encoded in .wav format. On the device's packaging, it lists the audio formats that the device accepts as input: .mp3 and .mp4."
