% simple script to use ffmpeg to convert wma files to mp3
% wanted to be able to play my music on iPod, so I wrote this to convert my files
% based on WinFF program, which is a frontend for FFMPEG
% WinFF:
% Written for an installation of WinFF. I haven't tried just installing ffmpeg.
% WinFF installs ffmpeg into it's directory.
% Use:
% put this script in main music directory (i.e. ...\My Music\)
% then run and it will look through all subdirs and convert any wma files to mp3
% deletes wma file after conversion
% defaults:
% convert to: mp3
% bitrate = 160k'
% numchannels = 2
% sample rate = 44100
% I know this is probably lame and written horribly, but it works and didn't take me any time.
% Kind of embarrassed to post it, but maybe it'll be useful to someone...
