flac to mp3
I love flac files, and I always rip my CDs in EAC - straight to FLAC. The problem is that a couple months ago I was transfering some of my older music to my MacBook and I discovered something awful. The horror known as iTunes doesn't grok Flac. I failed to find a single plugin.
First, I sought to convert my FLACs to ALEs - because it's rad. But I gave up. I finally discovered someone already having written what I wanted - in python - w00t.
flac2mp is an awesome little script. He got it from "ogg 2mp3", and I like it.
