Re: Convert wma to mp3 in linux

Download all the necessary codecs for wma and mp3 encoding/decoding. Also there may be some conversion tool in linux too as in windows, but i'm not sure about linux as i'm still a noob. If anybody knows of any such tool do post, will help us both...

Re: Convert wma to mp3 in linux

Ok, here is a bash script to do this, but before you run this, remove all the space and convert the names to lower case and name it somthing simple as abc123.wma or so. Then save this script and run it, then after the files are converted, manually rename the extension from wav to mp3. As this script will convert the file to wma to wav and wav to mp3 but the renaming from wav to mp3 will be manual. :
Code:
for d in *.wma ; do mplayer -vo null -vc dummy -af resample=44100 -ao pcm -waveheader $d && lame -m s audiodump.wav -o $d; done
