Thread: Does anyone know an "XMedia Recode"-like Program for Linux??

  1. #1

    Default Does anyone know an "XMedia Recode"-like Program for Linux??

    So, after hours of Google, Yahoo!, etc. I cannot find an powerful media converter for Linux like XMedia Recode!
    I really need a Program like this.

    For example: PuddleTag is an Mp3tag-like Program. They looks 90% identical. And has the same features.

    Is there also an "XMedia Recode"-like Program for Linux?

    pls help me


    here is an screenshot of the program

    I need it to convert my wav music files (on pc) to m4a for my android device
    take a special look at
    Rate control mode and quality
    i need constant ... @ 500 for better quality ( i hate VBR ) CBR is better

    converting works with wine but the output file looks than like this, shown in an HEX Editor
    Code:
    00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
    00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
    00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
    HEX

    why not just run XMedia Recode in a MS running in a VM!!

    heck, it might even run in WINE..

    have you tried either? (you could have done either in less than "hours
    of Google, Yahoo!, etc.")

    Rather than specify "like this Windows program I like", could you frame
    your question in terms of what it is you're trying to accomplish?

    That would probably help those who are unfamiliar with your specific
    Windows program point you to a program that accomplishes the task you're
    trying to do.

    Did you REALLY search the Internet?

    http://alternativeto.net/software/xm...platform=linux

    I doubt you have tried all alternatives before saying that you haven't found
    anything as powerful as XMedia Recode. However, if you do test at least one
    of the Linux alternatives, don't forget to post your conclusions here, as it
    might be helpful for other users!

    non of the programs have an "Rate control mode"-feature for AAC/M4A audio
    so i cannot change it to constant and if i cannot change it to constant i have VBR (an i already said i hate VBR, it su**s)
    CBR is the best!! and better is @500

    the output M4A/AAC file than have a CBR between 320kbps and 510kbps, depending on the quality of the source wav
    but i will never sank under 320kbps, so yeah!

    do you understand me?

    good news:
    but i also solved the problem

    XMedia Recode 3.x and up works now with wine 1.3.x and up

    i tested XMedia Recode 3.0.2.5 with wine 1.3.31 and it works like a charm
    xmedia recode v2.x never worked, but since v3 is out it works!
    it also could be, that wine 1.3 support more win progs, than wine 1.2
    but i'm glad that this powerful and free converter works now

    i only can verify audio convertition, i never tested a video
