Audio Format Converter

   0.7.0  

Amarok Script

Audio Format Converter

Downloads:  20572
Submitted:  May 2 2005
Updated:  Apr 28 2007

Description:

This script allows you to convert the audio format of the tracks in the playlist. The script takes a snapshot of the current playlist. Once the conversion has started, you can go back to using amaroK normally.

Supported files for both input and output include .flac, .ogg, .mp3, .mpc, .m4a, and .wav. Additionally, .wma, .ra, and are supported for input. (See below for the required packages.)

I don't know how to do anything with metatags from .wma or .ra. All I know is tags will get transferred to the output file if and only if the tags show up in the amaroK playlist. If they aren't there, I suggest converting the files, then using a real tag editor like Easy Tag to put them in to the converted files.

This has only been tested on amaroK 1.2.4, but it should work on any amaroK>=1.2

The original files are NOT deleted. If the output file will overwrite an existing file, a dialog will appear to ask you whether to go ahead and overwrite or to skip the track. If you try to convert a file into the format it's already in, a dialog will ask you how to handle this situation.

Depending on the number of tracks and the speed of your computer, this can take a long time to run. With each track, a passive popup will let you know what track it's processing. At any time, you can stop the script by clicking 'stop' in the amaroK script GUI.

Required Packages:
lame -- for .mp3 in and out
flac -- for .flac in and out
oggenc -- for .ogg out
oggdec -- for .ogg in
mppenc -- for .mpc out
mppdec -- for .mpc in
mplayler -- for .wma or .ra in
faad -- for .mp4/.m4a in
faac -- for .m4a out




Changelog:

v 0.7.0
++++++
The improvements in this release are due to Frederick Schaer, and I (we) thank him for his help!

The improvements are: 1) It now should handle full utf-8 character encoding for all the usual tags. 2) It corrects the error noted in the comments below about IndexError/AttributeError--something which I believe only affects more recent versions of Python.

v.6.2
++++++
For myriad reasons, a file can fail to convert but the script will continue on with the next file (as intended--I don't want one corrupted file to stop a 1,000 file batch). There is now an error log in the top-level directory where your transcoded files are saved that lists any files that failed to convert.

v.6.1
++++++
--amaroK switched the track number xml tag in their playlist from "TrackNo" to "Track". This catches up with the change, but should still work on versions earlier than 1.3.

v.6
++++++
--Fixed a piping bug that could cause the script to stop after a couple of files.
--Added a check for whether the output format is the same as the input format, with a dialog for how to handle this situation.
--Added a few more included options for encoders (OTHER still allows you to set your own options.)

When you run it from the terminal, what output do you see when it runs? Anything at all? Do you see anything from oggenc or lame? And pay attention--there are many errors that won't cause the script to stop.

Excellent plugin!

It would be neat if it could somehow pass the files through normalize ( http://www1.cs.columbia.edu/~cvaill/normalize/ ) as well.

Hi:

mp3 -> wav

File "/home/beloncio/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/formatconverter.amarokscript/formatconverter.py", line 111, in getMetaInfo
exec getInfo[i]
File "", line 1, in ?
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'nodeValue'
Why?

Thanks

Hi I got the same error. It seems that having no Value e.g. in Comment or Genre gives an Attribute error instead of an Index error so just add an Attribute Error around line 114:

for i in range(len(getInfo)):
try:
exec getInfo[i]
except IndexError:
pass
except AttributeError:
pass
return title, artist, album, year, comment, track, genre

Hi,

I also had problems while trying to encode files : it was because of 2 things :
- empty tags (like comments)
- non englich chars (accentuated french chars)

I just created a patch to hopefully handle that (for me at least, it works...)

I don't see how to link a file, please send me a p.m (I'll try to send the patch to the author anyway...)

-Cheers

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.
