Music file type converters for linux

  1. Jan 28, 2005 #1
    What is a good, free of course, program that will convert music. I want one that will convert into mp3 format, or any format that has good quality and is small in size, and will play in xmms. (xmms has been down all day so I have no clue what formats are supported). I use linux btw. Thanks.

    If you want to rip cds I suggest grip ( http://nostatic.org/grip/ [Broken] )

    It supports encoding into mp3, ogg, flac and wav.
