    audioconvert! the new super script to convert audio files! :)

    hi gals, hi dudes!

    this is my first post to this forum! i hope it's the right section!

    i just made a script that converts audio files from wav, ogg, mp3, mpc, flac, ape or wma into wav, ogg, mp3, mpc, flac or ape! all with a right click of the mouse! that is, if you're usin' nautilus or rox. it was designed for nautilus, but it also works on rox, and of course as a standalone bash script. it uses zenity to show progress bars and ask questions

    this is the freshmeat link: http://freshmeat.net/projects/audio-convert/ there you will find the latest version, the cvs version, and the link to the homepage!

    please test it and give me feedback on the homepage on how it works, point me out bugs, make suggestions on how to improve it, and please test it on fluxbox and such, to see if it can be installed as a file manager script there, too!

    there is a documentation file in the cvs version i hope you fedora users can enjoy this as all the rest of us!

    aac support comin' soon!

    ciao!

    uh, by the way. if someone wants to help me out with more translation, you're more than welcome to do so! you can either post'em here or in the savannah homepage as a patch! or send'em to me by email! by the way, don't forget to tell me your email address and possibly your name, or at least your nickname, so i'll put you in the changelog!

    i already have italian, english, brazilian portuguese, and i need someone to complete french. all the other translations are more than welcome!

    ciao!

    I used your script. Nice work. I like the fact that I can select some files, right-click and convert them to whatever format I want. Now for the comments:

    You're asking for artist name, song name, desired quality etc. for every song. While this is acceptable for a few files, if I'm converting like 100 files at once I can't sit down in front of the computer and answer hundreds of dialog boxes. You need some way to specify the desired quality in advance and your script should be able to extract artist name, etc. from the file name by guessing based on the dash character etc. At the very least, just keep the entire file name as it is but change the extension.

    These are my first impressions. It could be a useful script for people. Keep up the good work.
    IMHO GNOME FTW! BTW KDE WAD? FWIW. HTH. AFAIK YMMV. OMG WTF BBQ! :rolleyes:

    Do you like surfing forums but wish people would stop using obscure abbreviations and acronyms?
    Then my Firefox/Chrome extension ABBREX is for you!
    It automatically adds hover tooltips to abbreviations displaying their meanings on any web page you visit!

    version 0.2 has come out! visit http://freshmeat.net/projects/audio-convert/ to download it!

    many new features, includin': it's now a lot easier to convert large groups of files. for instance, at the very beginnin' a question asks if we want to edit the metatags for each file or not, so we can say no and let the files convert. right after that, quality of compression is only asked once, before compressions take place, and it's used for all the group of files.

    there still is a question askin' for each file if we want to convert it or not, but i think i'll make it optional in 0.2.1, so convertin' large groups of files will then become a snap of fingers!

    dutch, french, to be completed, and brazilian portuguese translations added. german translation comin' soon!

    bandc, are we gettin' close to what you were hopin' for?

    please give me a lot of feedback!

    ciao!

    It's getting better. Comments for version 0.2:

    * Try to replace the dialog buttons with "yes or no" instead of "OK or cancel" if you can. It's confusing.
    * You are still asking if I want to convert each song before doing it. I'd prefer if you asked stuff once in the beginning at convert all files without asking anything again.

    Thanks troublemaker, I've installed it & no problems.
    It's very useful & means I can rip & save all my music as ogg with sound juicer, then only convert the files I want to copy into the mp3 player. Before this I was using grip configured to rip+encode as mp3, but I only really want the stuff I copy onto the player in mp3 format, not everything. Just for the record (little pun there) I've tried copying ogg files into the mp3 player & it can't even see them; shame really but hey
    Again thanks for your effort, much appreciated.

    hello everyone!

    audioconvert version 0.2.1 is out! visit http://freshmeat.net/projects/audio-convert to download it! a new feature has been added so that now it's possible to convert large groups of files with three or four clicks! support for flac metatags has been added! and now the script is available in german, too, thanks to lukaz!

    keep in mind that new translations, or updates to translations, since there are a few new variables to translate, are more than welcome! as of now we have: italian, dutch, english, french, german, brazilian portuguese! submit more if you feel like, and don't forget to give me your email address, so i can quote you in the changelog!

    thank you very much for your feedback, but please give me a lot more on how it works, and what features you would like included!

    for bandc. i don't think i'll able to change the names of the buttons. zenity sets them for you. a question at the beginnin' askin' if you want a confirmation question for every file has now been added! you can finally convert large groups of files very easily! for ksmith. thank you very much for your appreciation, and keep typin' in if you like the new versions!

    ciao!

    Greatest SCRIPT EVER! Quality remains great, metadata is altered correctly, etc., NICE. For some comments...


    You could make a little finish tab, to let the user know that Audio Convert was done. After the last window, I was kinda half-waiting for another one to pop up, ya know...finally figured out that it had finished though!

    Support for .shn files? Maybe? No? I don't know how hard that one is....


    Keep up the good Work!

    figured it out after I posted.
    wish you could select directoys at a time. would make it much Still very nice tool. makes it so that you dont have to do any special downloads to get music on core 4 out of the box. just do .ogg.

    Ed_D:
    You Can select multiple files by first selecting one, holding shift, and then using the arrow keys (either up or down) to select more files. Once you have all the files you want (you can go to Edit >>> Select All) right click, go to scrips, run audio convert. It will run through each file you selected, one at a time. Good luck

    OK, seems to work fine at home, but cant seem to get it to work on my work PC. It foes through the menus, but then just flashes and nothing. Hmmmm. Will see If I can download another copy and try again......
    Any Idea as to why it wont work? Do I need something "extra" installed as I just did the "home PC" flavor install.

    GREAT script thank you so much. FYI: Just place it in ~.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ to make it work in Nautilus for those who can't find the scripts directory.
    Probably a good idea to
    $ chmod +x audio-convert
    to make it executable, though I don't know if this is needed?

    Thanks so much. This should be a permanent part of Gnome.
