RE: MP3 CONVERSION - DOES ANYBODY KNOW ???

David, read my other post, it'll answer all your questions, and Cdexe will
indeed keep the sub-folder system for you if you check the relevant box.
Don't forget to set the sampling rate too, I use 32KBPS at 22500 sampling
rate, and whilst it's not bBC quality, it's better than AM radio.

If you need any more help, (anyone) you're welcome to email me off-list, and
I'll do what I can. I'm not a programmer, but converting audio is something
I know a little about.

Cheers now,

Rob

Subject: MP3 CONVERSION - DOES ANYBODY KNOW ???

On my JB I have some 1200+ files that contains Audiobooks. Quite a few of
them are delivered from the producer as a 80kbps, stereo track. First of
all, this makes some flicking sound in the very far left/right channels,
while playing in stereo mode. Next, 80kbps is a rather unnecessary high
bitrate for speech. I would greatly appriciate to have it downsized to
48kbps.

Does anybody in here know of a simple software that easy can be set to run
in Batch-mode, and that will convert my mp3's into mono, 48kbps files. Thing
is that they already are sorted into different subdirs under my Audiobook
folder. So, if the software even could take care of the job, as well with
the files in all the subfolders, that would be GREAT! And, just one more
thing: I am blind, so all these super graphical softwares won't do. I need a
software that can be easily operated with the screenreader.

Thanks, all!
David
