I have done much searching on the internet on how to convert mp3 files to Itunes m4r files. I really dont like using Itunes if I dont have to so I thought I would write something that will use my unix box.
This perl script will convert most mp3s to m4r.
I used 4 applications that can be installed on any GNU based system.
- mp3info - An MP3 technical info viewer and ID3 1.x tag editor
- mp3splt - Mp3Splt-project is a utility to split mp3 and ogg files selecting a begin and an end time position, without decoding.
- Faac - FAAC is an open source MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 AAC encoder, it is licensed under the LGPL license.
