Right. I am fed up of looking for stuff by myself, so I'm doing the sensible thing and asking.

I have recently acquired (note: not bought) a small white thing with an Apple logo on that plays music (read: an ipod). However, pleased as I am that I was offered the pretty, but horribly expensive thing for free, I am finding I have a few difficulties.

All my music, with very few exceptions, is in Vorbis.

...

Apple do not like Vorbis.

As a result of this, I can currently only listen to KOMPRESSOR. Needless to say, KOMPRESSOR would probably sort this out by crushing people like he crushes American burgers until something was done about it, but this is, believe it or not, one of the areas of life in which I feel KOMPRESSOR and I are different. Ahem, back to the point.

So, here I am with many a gigabyte of ogg-related goodness that my ipod does not, and probably never will play, and no batch conversion program that I can find that's free. So, if anyone knows of any application that I may acquire to turn all my oggs into mp3s without doing them all seperately, or even better (though research seems to suggest this isn't possible without installing linux where linux should not be) a way to get the ipod to play vorbis, it would be much appreciated.

I've never heard of it so I wouldn't know what to suggest. Why would you use such an obscure file format anyway?

http://www.blazemp.com/downloads.html - a free 15 day trial (might be long enough for you to convert all your files)

http://www.mp3-cd-converter.com/convert_mp...ogg_to_mp3.html - This one looks okay, and is free.

http://www.mp3-converter.com/dbpoweramp.htm - Free, but I couldn't find too much information on it.

http://www.mp3towav.org/Xilisoft-OGG-MP3-Converter/ - Another trial version (does not say what the limitations are)



I would suggest them from the top down, but I have not evaluated any of them in practice.

I wouldn't have thought it that obscure. This is the first time I've come across something that will not play it. Anyway, thanks for the links, Dave. Much obliged.

No problem, I just googled and weeded out the more shady ones.

I guess it's one of the formats that they neglected to teach us about on a sound technology degree...
*adds it to complaint list*

Unfortunately, I have just been moving into University, and have a few other things to get sorted at the moment.

Isn't Vorbis usually better known as 'OGG'? I'm surprised that the iPod doesn't support that... No wait, I'm not. Yay for iRiver! tongue.gif

BonkEnc is a free music ripper/encoder available at sourceforge. It's in beta and hasn't been updated in a long time, long enough to make me assume nobody is working on it. But it works, it can handle a variety of audio formats including ogg and aac (.m4a the default setting for itunes encoding) I've had some problems with it crashing without warning, but since I uninstalled it and reinstalled it a while later it's been fine.

There is a plugin you can get to get iTunes to play ogg files, it's not the greatest and probably doesn't help you with an ipod anyways, but there is one!

OGG is just a file format that acts as a container for data encoded with lots of different codecs, including Vorbis.

I used to use OGG but then bought a MP3 CD player that wouldn't play it. so converted back to MP3 - then I started using iTunes and all new stuff was ripped into AAC - which is compatible with phone and stuffs
