#Motivation

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.

#Installation

make install      #(as root)

# to uninstall
make uninstall    #(as root)

#Dependencies

In order to use this tool, you will need a few things installed:

#Usage

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

#Limitations

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.
