P.S. I think your script has been quite popular based on the number of views on this thread, and I see talk of it in several places when I search for wma2mp3 on a google search.
really? that's pretty cool, i certainly didn't know that. there must be other things called wma2mp3 though i would have thought, i can't be the only one to want to write this script surely.
P.S.S. It would be cool if you could also come up with an ogg2wma and an mp32wma even though I know it is against our religion. I just don't believe it's possible at the moment because WMA is proprietary M$ as far as I know.
well i can't think of any wma encoder that will run on linux or macosx however i haven't really ever looked for one either. also, i will never need to convert my stuff to wma, plus i don't want to be responsible for horrible wma files of things that used to be decent mp3s or oggs, it's like i would be participating in the lowering of the tone in the lossy music compression world by helping to up the quota of wma files out there. No, the whole point was to get rid of the wma files i already had, so i think it's safe to say there isn't any chance of me doing a *2wma one.
[offtopic]Void, I believe PPS is the official abbreviation for a second postscript, not PSS Razz [/offtopic]
you are right! since it's Post Script, then PPS is Post Post Script (while PSS would be Post Script Script, in my opinion this makes about the same amount of sense, but there you go)
Any chance of an m4a to mp3 script?
done, it's already part of the wma2mp3 0.15 tarball, there are actually twelve scripts in all at the moment, taking a large variety of input formats and outputting oggs, mp3s or wavs.
Maybe I just didn't pass the appropriate options.
well, that's not too good! in fact my other aim was to make the commands to use my scripts very simple. i am still agonising over whether to include *any* switches/options at all! certainly the default for my scripts, when run with no specified switches, will be to perform the job with no problems using sensible parameters. I could never understand those utilities (rar and unrar, to mention one) that do nothing unless you put in a string of characters that you have to look up every time you use the utility.
