audiokonverter is a service menu (and also a commandline utility) to easily convert from MP3, OGG, AMR, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WMA, RealAudio, Musepack, Wavpack, WAV and movies to MP3, OGG, M4A, WAV and FLAC in Konqueror by right-clicking on them. It needs ffmpeg, oggenc, oggdec, faac, faad, flac, mplayer and lame to work. id3lib is optional for full functionality. Also optional are vorbis-tools and metaflac for handling other metadata. See README how/where to get that software.
Be sure about needed software when installing prebuilt packages!

Please vote for "good" if you like the program. There are many downloads with each release, but only a few votes.

Monkey is inofficially supported.
For ape to flac (lossy format to lossfree format) you must edit your "audioconvert" file. Find it with "which audioconvert".

There is a
function apetoflac()
echo -e "# Monkey to FLAC only increases filesize. I won't do this.\n"
kdialog --passivepopup "Monkey to FLAC only increases filesize. I won't do this." 3
# flacname="${encdir}/${EXTRA}/${shortname}.flac"
# nice -10 mac "$1" "${tempfile}" -d
# nice -10 flac ${FLACOPTS} --output-name="${flacname}" "${tempfile}"
# rm -f "${tempfile}"

Delete all "#" there, make one before "kdialog" and save the file.

Then you can do "audioconvert -t f filename.ape".
I want to keep audiokonverter simple and sensible. It is not easy to add ape files to the servicemenu, because the mimetype is different in every distro. Probably it is not even existing in most distros, because the software to use it is not free.

 Excellent add-on

audiokonverter for KDE-3x and KDE-4x is an excellent add-on.
On Mandriva 2009.1 x86_64 with KDE-3, 'install.sh' (from the tarball provided) even looks for $KDEDIR and let me graphically choose where it is (/opt/kde3) :-)
install script eventualy let me know which programs or libs it needs to provides full functionalities: id3 id3v2 id3lib in this location.

Whish there are a 'convert Ogg to mp3' for mp3-only player.

Thanks for the praise.
What exactly do you mean? It can convert ogg to mp3.

It's a shame that this uses faac rather than neroAacEnc. The latter still performs significantly better on listening tests.

 one little audioconvert bug

 by manxmaus on: Nov 19 2010
Score 50%


Thanks for the nice tool. There is one little bug, though: in line 743 the script calls itself with the name "audioconvert" which should be changed to the new "audioconvert4" otherwise it will not be found.

The same change should be applied to the usage text. And it would be nice to mention that wildcards may be used, or maybe even add some example like this:

"audioconvert4 -dontask *" will convert all audio files in the current directory into MP3 and place them in the default $encdir directory.

 Problems with VLC

 by Chip88 on: Sep 4 2013

Hi there!

I'd like to use this great service menu, but there seems to be some difficulties with VLC Player.

If vlc is installed, it will be deleted due to install of this menu.

Installing VLC back via Muon doesn't work at all and results in an error.

So there is just the option to install VLC again via terminal.

But, when installing VLC, some packages are goingt to be removed:
audiokonverter:i386 dvgrab ffmpeg:i386 libav-tools:i386 libavcodec53 libavcodec53:i386
libavdevice53:i386 libavformat53 libavformat53:i386 libavutil51 libavutil51:i386
libcdio-cdda1:i386 libcdio-paranoia1:i386 libcdio13:i386 libdca0:i386 libdvdnav4:i386
libdvdread4:i386 libenca0:i386 liblircclient0:i386 libquicktime2 mplayer:i386

All needed for this service menu...

How can I fix this and get both things (your service menu and VLC) to work together?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I forgot to add the information of the system I'm using:
KDE 4.10.5
Ubuntu 13.04
Kernel: 3.8.0-29-generic

Hope this helps to resolve the issue.

Please try installing it with the installer from the tarball. This does not affect your package management, then.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
