Audio Format Converter 0.7.0

Audio Format Converter is a an Amarok script that allows you to convert the audio format of the tracks in the playlist.
Audio Format Converter is a an Amarok script that 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.

Requirements:

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

What's New in This Release:

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.
