ogg2mp3 takes a list of OGG Vorbis formatted files and converts them to mp3 format. ogg2mp3 project is useful when you want to transfer OGG encoded files to a device which doesn't support the format (e.g. an iPod).

Each file specified on the command line is converted to a file with the same name except the ``.ogg'' at the end is replaced with ``.mp3''. The new file is created in the current working directory unless otherwise specified with the --output-directory option.

By default, ogg2mp3 prints one line of output per file processed (printing it as the processing of that file starts) as follows:

processing 1 / 10 : 01_big_exit.ogg -> ./01_big_exit.mp3

Where 01_big_exit.ogg is the first of ten files to be processed (1 / 10), and the output file is called ./01_big_exit.mp3.

This behaviour can be modified using the --quiet and --verbose options.

OPTIONS:

Note that all command line options may be abbreviated to the shortest unique version, e.g. --output-directory can be shortened to -o because there are no other options beginning with -o. However, to see the version, at least --vers is required since there is also the --verbose option, thus ``vers'' is the shortest unique abbreviation of ``version''.

--debug n

Set the debugging level to n. Ranges from 0 to 10, 10 being really verbose, 0 being just warnings (the default).

--id3-tags or --noid3-tags

Specify that you want (or not) ID3 tags to be copied into the MP3 file.

--force-overwrite

If an output .mp3 file already exists, overewrite it without prompting (the default is to skip such files and issue a warning).

--help

Show a brief command line help message and exit.

--output-directory dir

Tell ogg2mp3 to create the .mp3 files in the directorry dir instead of the current directory.

--prefix prefix

Prefix all output filenames with prefix.

--quiet

Don't print output unless there is an error.

--suffix suffix

Append suffix to all output filenames just before the .mp3 extension.

--verbose

If --quiet is not spcified, this switch increases the amount of information displayed as each file is processed. The extra information details the ID3 tags found in the source file.

--version

Print the program name and version and exit.

EXAMPLES:

Example 1

$ ogg2mp3 echo.ogg got_two_legs.ogg pripple_ipple.ogg
processing 1 / 3 : echo.ogg -> ./echo.mp3
processing 2 / 3 : got_two_legs.ogg -> ./got_two_legs.mp3
processing 3 / 3 : pripple_ipple.ogg -> ./pripple_ipple.mp3
This command will create three new files: echo.mp3, got_two_legs.mp3, and pripple_ipple.mp3 in mp3 format in the current directory.

Example 2

$ ogg2mp3 -o /media/ipod my_song.ogg
processing 1 / 1 : my_song.ogg -> /media/ipod/my_song.mp3
This command creates the file my_song.mp3 in the directory /media/ipod.

Example 3

$ ls *.ogg
track_01.ogg track_02.ogg track_03.ogg
$ ogg2mp3 -o /tmp --verbose *.ogg
processing 1 / 3 : track_01.ogg -> /tmp/track_01.mp3
ID3 Tags:
album => Frengers
artist => Mew
date => 2003
genre => Pop
title => Am I Wry? No
tracknumber => 1

processing 2 / 3 : track_02.ogg -> /tmp/track_02.mp3
ID3 Tags:
album => Frengers
artist => Mew
date => 2003
genre => Pop
title => 156
tracknumber => 2

processing 3 / 3 : track_03.ogg -> /tmp/track_03.mp3
ID3 Tags:
album => Frengers
artist => Mew
date => 2003
genre => Pop
title => Snow Brigade
tracknumber => 3

As you can see, adding the --verbose option turns on display of ID3 tags.
