Name: Perl Audio Converter
Type: KDE Sound Application
Perl Audio Converter is a tool for converting
multiple audio types from one format to another.
It supports AAC, AC3, AIFF, APE, AU, AVR, BONK,
CDR, FLA, FLAC, LA, LPAC, M4A, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC,
MPP, OFR, OFS, OGG, PAC, RA, RAM, RAW, SHN, SMP,
SND, SPX, TTA, VOC, WAV, and WMA. It can also
convert audio from the following video extensions:
RM, RV, ASF, DivX, MPG, MKV, MPEG, AVI, MOV, OGM,
QT, VCD, SVCD, M4V, NSV, NUV, PSP, SMK, VOB, FLV,
and WMV. A CD ripping function with CDDB support,
batch conversion, tag preservation for most
supported formats, independent tag
reading/writing, and extensions for Konqueror and
Amarok are also provided.
major update. the entire application has been
re-written from scratch.
the new layout allows languages and codecs to be
added much easier than
- removed all --formattoformat options (eg:
- removed pacpl-install
- removed daemon mode (this may be re-implemented
in a future release)
- removed --playlist option
- removed --play function
- removed support for kexis (kxs). if anyone was
actually using this format I apologize, but the
programs inability to specify an output file just
wouldn't work with the new system.
+ added support for speex
+ added support for user modules. see
+ added ability to alter/add meta-data during
conversion via tagging opts
+ added configure and makefile for installation
+ added --to option. this replaced --ct and the
+ added --only option. with this option, only
files matching .ext will get converted. (eg: pacpl
--to wav --only flac /home/directory/) only
converts files ending in .flac to wav
+ added --dryrun option. this was
inspired/suggested by Stefano Sabatini
+ added --verbose option. useful in conjunction
+ added language po-like files. translators (as
always) are welcome.
+ added the following video types to the
video->audio conversions: svcd, m4v, nsv, nuv,
psp, and smk.
* update all files are now converted to wav first,
then to the desired output format. in the future
this will allow normalization, gain, etc.
* update slackware package now uses the new kde
installation directory /usr
* update a large portion of the amarok script has
% fixed bug with handling dollar signs ($) in file
names being treated as regular expressions.
thanks to Donald Byrd for the report.
% fixed bug when copying ogg tags. only copy tags
starting with the tag string (artist, title,
etc)...as opposed to any tag containing the
string. thanks to Edward Kear for reporting this
