1. well done, but why not convert in aac format?

  3. Thanks. It took a bit of work since I have never written any AppleScript before :) (I don’t like the language based on this little exercise.)

    I chose MP3 because it is much more portable. I am also not very familiar with Apple’s AAC format. I did encode the MP3s as variable bitrate with a median rate of 192Kb/sec so they should be good enough. That is a helluva lot better than what you get from the iTunes music store.

  4. hey,
    any reason it converts my files to WAV files instead of MP3?

  5. It has to convert them to wave before MP3. Do you have Lame installed? `port install lame` and it should work fine. I am willing to bet that the workflow is failing because it can’t find the lame binary.

  6. Hey, thanks a bunch for making these scripts, they work great. I just wanted to give a quick tip. If you have installed the vorbis-tools, lame, and sox packages using Fink it is still possible for the scripts to work. Just change /opt/local/bin/oggdec to /sw/bin/oggdec, /opt/local/bin/sox to /sw/bin/sox/, and /opt/local/bin/lame to /sw/bin/lame/. Hope that helps.

  7. I’d love the opposite – a mp3 to ogg converter. My palm pilot is my “ipod” and I can fit twice the oggs as mp3s, and it doesn’t play aac/mp4a.
