Amakode is a script for Amarok 1 to transcode music. It uses various external executables to do the grunt work which you will need to install separately using your package manager. More installation details on the home page.


Musepack support thanks to Luigi Curzi and Louis-Guillaume Fortin.

mp4 bug fixes thanks to Michael Morris.

 What version of Amarok?

 by gothats on: Apr 13 2009
Score 50%

I'm running Amarok2, and I'm wondering if this script works with it. It doesn't mention anywhere what versions it's compatible with.
When I went to Tools->Script Manager, selected "Get More Scripts", and searched for Amakode, it found nothing. So I downloaded the tarball from sourceforge and installed it into Amarok via the Install Script button. And nothing happened. But it is installed, because if I try to install it again Amarok says "That script is already installed". I don't know how to activate it, and since it's not listed in the list of installed scripts, I don't even know how to uninstall it.

Amakode only works with Amarok version 1.

To be honest I've not tried Amarok 2 yet, and I have no idea about what is involved in adding support.

Manual uninstallation should be as simple as deleting the appropriate directory under ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/

 Patch to add WMA input support

Thank you for your work on this. I had input files that were in Windows Media format (wma), so I added one line to your script to enable support, via mplayer. Below is my patch:

--- amakode.py Wed Apr 22 19:23:59 2009
*** 230,235 ****
--- 230,236 ----
decode["ogg"] = ["ogg123", "-d", "wav", "-f", "-", "-"]
# XXX: this is really fugly but faad refuses to read from a pipe
decode["mp4"] = ["env", "MPLAYER_VERBOSE=-100", "mplayer", "-ao", "pcm:file=/dev/stdout", "-"]
+ decode["wma"] = ["env", "MPLAYER_VERBOSE=-100", "mplayer", "-ao", "pcm:file=/dev/stdout", "-"]
decode["m4a"] = decode["mp4"]
decode["flac"] = ["flac", "-d", "-c", "-"]

 problem when encoding to ogg

 by gvirta on: Aug 7 2009
Score 50%

The original track's title is showing up in the target track's tags as the album name when encoding to ogg. There's a typo in the encoding flags. Line 255 is currently:

tagopt["ogg"] = { "album":"-l", "artist": "-a", "title":"-a", "track":"-N" }

it should be

tagopt["ogg"] = { "album":"-l", "artist": "-a", "title":"-t", "track":"-N" }

Other than that it works great for me, thanks!

Hi there. I was wondering if it would be possible to add an option so that the volume of the converted tracks gets normalised somewhere in the pipeline, before they are transfered to the portable mp3 player.

Often with podcasts, they are recorded just too quietly, so that background noise from the environment drowns out my headphones, even if I set the volume to maximum.

Apart from that, a normalisation step would ensure that all tracks are more or less of equal volume on the mobile device.

I am thinking about changing the transcoding pipeline to make more use of sox, which should make normalisation easy. Thanks for the suggestion.

any news if there are plans for a amarok 2 version? Who do I have to send a keg of beer to to convince him/her to start coding? ;-)

 m4a trouble on Ubuntu 9.04

This is a wonderful script! For some reason though, my m4a files are not getting converted. I think I have all the libraries installed. Any suggestions? Is there a log somewhere that would display the actual error?

thank you!

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.
