Simple and fast mp3 conversion
I was using the soundconverter tool on my main workstation. I'd still recommend it but I've found myself using less applications with a GUI; so, I figured I found give it a shot and see if I could write something that would satisfy my needs. I've tried to make this tool as intuitive as possible, with sane defaults, and no weird flags.
make install #(as root) # to uninstall make uninstall #(as root)
In order to use this tool, you will need a few things installed:
mp3me ./musicdir # convert music files mp3me -j 8 ./musicdir # start 8 jobs, i.e. threads (default is half your available cores) mp3me -b 192 ./musicdir # convert music files @ 192kbps mp3me -h # show this help message mp3me -v # show the version info
To make this tool simpler, I have made a few assumptions. We only convert to mp3. Files are output in the same folder. These are my preferred settings. Maybe I'll add more flags to handle changing output type and location.
