Below is a script that will convert a lot of audio formats to MP3 via the commandline. It has [[MPlayer]], [https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/any/mutagen/ mutagen] and [https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/lame/ lame] as dependencies, so it should accept every format that both mutagen and player accept.

Below is a script that will convert a lot of audio formats to MP3 via the commandline. It has MPlayer, mutagen and lame as dependencies, so it should accept every format that both mutagen and player accept.

Basically, mp3ify <input_dir> [<output_dir>] transforms structure <input_dir>/X/Y/.../Z into structure <output_dir>/X/Y/.../Z according to the following rules:

  • flac, ogg, m4a, ape, aac, mpc files will be encoded to mp3 preserving tags.
  • Everything else will be copied without modification.

Default output_dir is /tmp/mp3ify.

lame settings fine-tunning is done editing the configuration variables at the top of the script.

If you prefer to install a package here is one at the AUR.


#!/bin/bash

DEFAULT_OUTPUT_DIR=/tmp/mp3ify
QUALITY=2
VBR_QUALITY=4
MIN_BITRATE=64
MAX_BITRATE=256
SAMPLE_FREQ=44.1


function any_to_mp3 {

  PIPE=`mktemp -u -t mp3ify.pipe.XXXXXX`
  mkfifo "$PIPE"

  mplayer -ao pcm -ao pcm:file="$PIPE" "$INPUT_FILE" -noconsolecontrols > /dev/null 2>&1 &

  lame -m j -q $QUALITY -v -V $VBR_QUALITY -b $MIN_BITRATE \
       -B $MAX_BITRATE -s $SAMPLE_FREQ "$PIPE" "$OUTPUT_FILE" > /dev/null 2>&1

  rm "$PIPE"

  python2 -c "
import mutagen
input = mutagen.File(\"$INPUT_FILE\", easy = True)
output = mutagen.File(\"$OUTPUT_FILE\", easy = True)
for tag in [ 'artist', 'album', 'tracknumber', 'date', 'genre', 'title', 'comment' ]:
  value = input.get(tag)
  if value: output[tag] = value[0]
output.save(v1=2)"
}


function usage {

  echo "mp3ify <input_dir> [<output_dir>]
