Since buying a Squeezebox, I have been steadily ripping all my CDs into FLAC format.
However, I also have an iPod and the iPod can not play back FLAC files, and even if it could, MP3 files are a lot smaller and good enough quality for mobile use.
I needed some way to convert my large FLAC collection to MP3, and came up with a perl script, imaginatively entitled "flac2mp3".
Please see the flac2mp3 webpage:
I've also created three mailing lists related to flac2mp3:
