Quickly Convert .ogg Audio Files to .mp3 Format [Fedora]

OK, first of all you need to install the gnome media apps:

yum install gnome-media-apps

This provides a command line tool called sox.

You can just tell sox to convert a file from .ogg to .mp3 like this:

sox audio.ogg audio.mp3

It¬†didnt work! I’m getting a¬†horrible error!

If you are seeing something that says:

sox FAIL formats: no handler for file extension `mp3'

Then fear not.

Install the required plugin:

yum install sox-plugins-freeworld

And it should all work as intended. There you go – super easy conversion from .ogg to .mp3.
