Hi eNarc,

what are you trying to do here?

Rip CD to MP3? or convert MP3 to some other format? - If so, what format?

The more specific you can be, the better recommendation I can make.

Transcode Multi mp3 Files at once to a lower format, 128 to 64 using RAW format.

I'd like to batch lots of files than having to do each 1 on its own :S

not rip CD, just ur average mp3 file.

so for example we have 3 mp3 files

1.mp3
2.mp3
3.mp3
each is 128, so...

transcode them to 64.

1.mp3 -> transcode -> done.
2.mp3 -> transcode -> done.
3.mp3 -> transcode -> done.
done, job lot complete.


transcode{acodec=mp3,ab=64}:standard{mux=raw,dst=H:\1.mp3,access=file}
transcode{acodec=mp3,ab=64}:standard{mux=raw,dst=H:\2.mp3,access=file}
transcode{acodec=mp3,ab=64}:standard{mux=raw,dst=H:\3.mp3,access=file}

though I don't know the hole command ^^^^ to make that happen :S

how can I use that for a batch or make a command lengh for it? so I can add files and have it batch that way.

Hi eNarc,

I don't know the command either. Is there a reason why it needs to be done via command lines?

I use the following program to batch transcode in this way:

Super:

Super is a completely free video/audio converter that achieves for free what most can't achieve for money!

http://www.erightsoft.com/S5l01.html
Direct download link:
http://gpl.download.free.fr/3D9121212BB6AB90DF314FF/SUPERsetup.exe

Simply drag and drop the mp3s to transcode into the program, select your output rate e.g. 64kbps and away it goes!

Hope this helps!

I'll take your word for it!

Perhaps you can find the correct syntax here:
