soundconverter — convert sound files to other formats


soundconverter [options] [file...]


soundconverter is a simple tool for converting sound files to other formats. It can work from the command line, but is really meant for interactive use in the GNOME environment.


-h, --help
Print out a usage summary.
-b, --batch
Convert in batch mode, from command line, without a graphical user interface. You can use this from, say, shell scripts.
-m, --mime-type arg
Set the output MIME type for batch mode. The default is audio/x-vorbis. Note that you probably want to set the output suffix as well. You can also use shortcuts: aac, flac, mp3, vorbis, wav.
-q, --quiet
Be quiet. Don't write normal output, only errors.
-d, --debug
Print additional debug information.
-s, --suffix arg
Set the output filename suffix for batch mode. The default is .ogg. Note that the suffix does not affect the output MIME type.
-t, --tags
Show tags for input files instead of converting them. This indicates command line batch mode and disables the graphical user interface.
-j, --jobs=
Force number of concurent conversions. Default is one per present CPU.
