Convert Flac to MP3?

Postby Carl » Wed Jun 03, 2009 7:50 pm

What's the best program to convert flac to mp3? I't would need to keep all of the ID3 Tags and stuff...

Thanks in advance!

'The best' is always a totally subjective and unproveable concept.

Having said that, I always use 'soundconverter'. It is in the repos and has a gui. You can install with

$sudo apt-get install soundconverter

at a command prompt (terminal) or search for it in Synaptic Package Manager.

Alternatively, you can use "File --> Export" in Audacity. I am pretty sure they use different codecs so you might want to try each method & see if you have a preference for the resultant quality.

Cheers,
Rhodry.
