I'm looking for a program that converts ogg to mp3. I don't need anything really fancy, just something quick. Somehow I remember having a program called "oggdrop" in the past, but I don't seem to have it anymore. When I looked on their site, it said things about playing ogg files, when all I remember is a little icon that you dragged ogg files onto to convert them. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or know of something better?

dBpowerAmp didn't seem to work because it was a trial or something, and winamp said something similar on its site.

Winamp comes in 2 flavors: Basic and Pro.

Basic is free, Pro is like $20. The main difference is CD ripping and burning speeds. But, also you can encode into propriatary formats (WMA, AAC, MP3 [yes, MP3 is a propriatary format, despite it becoming a psuedo-standard. That is why you have to pay for many mp3 encoders as there are licensing fees to use the format]) with pro.

You do not lose the ability to playback formats or install plugins with basic.

Winamp will play ogg files so you won't need to re-encode.

If you must re-endoce, then get Win-Lame. Can't get any free-er that open source. ;)http://winlame.sourceforge.net/

Another open source solution is MediaCoder . It's what I use for formatting my collection. I rip WAVs from my SPC/NSF/GYM/etc.. collections, and use MediaCoder to mass encode them to ogg for my portable player (Which happens to be a hacked Nintendo DS running MoonShell). Somewhat ironically, MoonShell now supports these formats so my effort was in vain.

But MediaCoder did the job of mass-encoding well. I believe for an input format as common as ogg-vorbis, you can batch transcode easily without ripping to wav like I did for the less-common videogame formats.

enjoy your re-encoding artifacts :3

OGG IS LOSSLESS NO ARTIFACTS, N00B! lol

Was that a joke? Ogg is lossy, so there WILL be re-encoding artifacts.

(i believe you can put flac in an ogg container nowadays so that would be lossless. But i think everyone assumed that we were talking about the lossy Vorbis in an ogg container here).

What a newb, that snapple-newb.

that, or get winamp 2, that is way better than winamp 5, and can decode/encode from ANY file format.

for me, I'll never get rid of my winamp 2.23. it's great.

uhhh... nineko. You know that winamp 5 can take all your winamp 2 plugins, right? So anything you can do in winamp 2 you can do in winamp 5. Just because winamp 5 can do something natively if you pay monies doesn't mean it can't do the same things for free with plugins.
