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

VBR_QUALITY=4
MIN_BITRATE=64
MAX_BITRATE=256

  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 \
