V 0.4 Fixed some bugs. V 0.3 Fixed a bug which prevented deletion of temporary files created by AtomicParsley. Added error handling with user friendly error messages. V 0.2 Added support for preserving ID3 tags. The script now additionaly requires eyed3 and atomicparsley to read and write ID3 tags. They can be installed on Ubuntu and its derivatives by issuing the command sudo apt-get install atomicparsley eyed3 README EasyAac is a small shell script which can be used to batch convert MP3 files to AAC+. This script requires lame, aacplusenc and MP4Box, they can be installed on Ubuntu by issuing the following command sudo apt-get install lame aacplusenc gpac Usage: ./easyaac.sh playlist.m3u bitrate To convert files, simply create a playlist of songs you want to convert, using your favorite music player and save/export it in .m3u format. (The script has been tested to work with m3u playlists generated with Rhythmbox, Totem and Audacious, however playlists generated by other players should work as well) Put the generated playlist in the same directory as the script and execute ./easyaac.sh playlist.m3u bitrate Where bitrate is the desired bitrate of the output files in kbps. (If the above command gives an error "permission denied" please execute the command chmod +x easyaac.sh and run the script again.) The converted files will be placed in a subdirectory with the same name as the playlist. NOTE: ID3 Tag information is currently lost during conversion. --fixed as of V 0.2 Enjoy!!!
