Converting files to mp3

I have previously used Lame to convert different file formats to mp3. Having stumbled on some mp4 videos that refused to being converted to mp3 I thought I’d try my luck with FFmpeg instead.

Using FFmpeg was quite easy:

ffmpeg -i infile outffile.mp3

Controlling the bit-rate of the created file:

ffmpeg -b 192 -i infile outffile.mp3


The mp4 file was converted to mp3 without problems. Mission accomplished!
