Just save the following script to a file and run it on your favorite rm file.
#!/bin/bash FILE="$1" OUTDIR="mp3" OUTPUT=$OUTDIR/`basename "$FILE" .rm`.mp3 # We use a fifo file so that encoding the mp3 with lame can start immediately # after decoding with mplayer starts. FIFO=rm2mp3.fifo if ! test -f "$FILE"; then echo "error: '$FILE' does not exist" exit 1 fi if ! test -p "$FIFO"; then mkfifo "$FIFO" fi if ! test -d "$OUTDIR"; then mkdir mp3 fi echo "Input: '$FILE'" echo "Output: '$OUTPUT'" sleep 2 # Give time for user to kill if the input/output is wrong # Show commands as they are executed. set -x # Send rm audio to fifo mplayer -ao pcm:fast -ao pcm:file=$FIFO -vc null -vo null "$FILE" >/dev/null 2>&1 & # Create MP3 from WAV lame -h -V 6 $FIFO "$OUTPUT" rm -f "$FIFO"
Please send along any improvements (such as better flags for mplayer/lame).
