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

each is 128, so...

transcode them to 64.

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


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 is a completely free video/audio converter that achieves for free what most can't achieve for money!
Direct download link:

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!
