In OpenSuse 12.2 and Amarok 2.5 when I attempt to copy unprotected .m4a songs from my iPod into my local library the transcode dialog comes up, but both mp3 and ogg are not listed as options. They are not grayed out, there is just no option for them.
I’ve installed the suse 12.2 restricted media formats as per: http://forums.opensuse.org/content/127-multimedia-restricted-formats-installation-guide-12-2.html
Note Amarok plays .mp3 files just fine, I can rip to mp3 using KaudioCreator, etc.
ffmpeg -codecs | grep mp3 ...

ffmpeg and lame versions:
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ffmpeg-0.10.13-2000.5.x86_64 ffmpeg-1.0-1.3.x86_64 libmp3lame0-3.99.5-1002.3.x86_64 lame-3.99.5-1002.3.x86_64
I did find this post, where it is mentioned ffmpeg changed output of ffmpeg -codecs thus breaking Amarok 2.6 with ffmpeg >= 1.0 - but I’m on Amarok 2.5
Thank you for any suggestions.
