Edit: feb 22 2012 time of conversion estimate given
and a window to show progress of conversion


Edit: oct 24 Switched to xdialog from yaf splash to show foreign
languages. Now French German Spanish Finnish Dutch
Italian Portugese versions are available


Edit: oct 20 I changed name to conversion_audio
so that installation is easier


Edit: sept 8 new pet available to convert a MP3 file to
a WAV file - see post for details


I added a new feature to Puppy ... conversion of wav to mp3
with a right click option.


I've written two apps that convert a wav file to mp3
or an entire folder. The great thing about them is
that they work with the right click of your mouse.

wav to mp3 conversion -- both single file and folder

The folder conversion has an option to delete the original
wave files after the conversion has taken place.
This is the safest method I think.


Just click to install. They are both very small
because they both use LAME which is
built-in to nearly all Puppies.

You can get LAME if your Puppy doesn't have it installed.

Foreign language translations are easy to do
since I localized the scripts using Zigbert's method.

Both an entire folder and a single file.

That is so cool. I had no idea puppy could do funky stuff like that with the right-click menu.

PostPosted: Thu 18 Aug 2011, 18:52    Post subject: uploaded correct package now  

conversion_mp3-1.1.pet is the correct package

The previous package conversion_mp3-1.0.pet
was my first attempt, I believe.

Both scripts have been localized for foreign languages.

Puppy comes with Asunder and Pcdripper, both of which can also convert WAV to mp3. In addition, they can convert an entire CD to mp3 without having to rip the whole CD first. Instead of ripping the whole CD before starting to convert the tracks to mp3, they rip one track and convert it to mp3 before going to the next track. That way doesn't require as much temporary storage as ripping the whole CD first.

Note to Flash - These are simple scripts that just
need lame to be installed. The whole idea is
to make puppy as small as possible but still powerful!!


Pmusic does an excellent job of converting waves to mp3,
but few people use it. Pmusic can even rip an entire CD
(but not a few selected tracks)

I was looking for the quickest and easiest method
of converting and that led me to pawdiocorder

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=245847564&t=28089

I studied one of the scripts 'wav2mp3'. I've been using
it for months and have been pleased with the results.

But then I remembered that on Apple's Mac OS that
they have scripts that allow mp3 conversion with a 'Control' click
which is the equivalent of Linux Right click option.

So I wrote these two scripts and they work well with my limited
testing over the last week.

Don570, I understand, and thank you for posting your scripts. I just wanted to be sure that any newcomers who read this thread know that there are other options which come with Puppy. Smile

PostPosted: Tue 06 Sep 2011, 19:52    Post subject: rewrite wav to mp3  

It should be easy to rewrite the script.
I'll look into it.

Paudioscripts has a script mp32wav

You should use that if you have a folder of music that
needs conversion

Merci à esmourguit !

Je travaille à une application 'quick_launch-1.0'
Elle aura besoin d'une traduction dans quelques jours.
_____________________________________________

I worked on a right click option to convert a mp3 to
a wav file. It was harder than I thought!!

I wanted a gtkdialog window to pop up and give options
since this is the safest way, but it added complexity.

The user has two options. One a high quality stereo wav
that can be edited with mhwaveedit
or a mono mp3.

Available at first post

PostPosted: Thu 20 Oct 2011, 19:36    Post subject: new package name - conversion_audio  

I combined two programs into one and
I changed the name to conversion_audio.

convert_mp3 and convert_wav will be no more.

The new package is easy to install and understand.

Just click to install and you will see the appropriate option
when you right click on a wav or mp3 file.

You will be given a chance to cancel just before the conversion
of a file.

I did this just in case a person accidently chose the option Laughing
