Reply To: ogg transcoding problem


I tried the perl script instead of the bash one and it gave an error about WAV headers, so I thought I had already installed ffmpeg but apparently not.

It also appears that Rhythmbox is not working properly; when I try to play an ogg in it, no joy, but Banshee is able to play oggs and flacs.

I just wanted to test the transcoding before I shelled out the cash for a SoundBridge, and I think it’ll work now.
