convaudi is a handy tool to massively convert audio files of various formats into other formats. It is built on (and supports all formats supported by) FFmpeg.


FFmpeg has to exist in your PATH. Also, the following gems have to be installed: popen4, thread_storm, progressbar.


$ ruby convaudi.rb [options]
