I have created a simple way to convert toppy recordings to mp3, this has a much simpler installer than my other scripts. To use you just right click a rec file and chose "Convert to mp3".

Full details are at my site http://www.soniclife.byethost7.com.

Is this just for windows? The use of an .exe file suggests it is, but then you talk about java, so in principle maybe this could work on mac or linux. Could it?

Thanks. Will (hopefully) give this a go over the weekend.

I think jumbo was offering to port Java to the Toppy. Which is kind of him.

I installed in the XP Virtual Machine on my linux box, and although it worked a treat I thought it was a little slow (took 20mins to demux and encode a 2 hour radio recording). Whilst it was doing it, I had a look at the script, and saw that you were simply using projectx to demux and lame to encode.

So, by way of testing things, I tried the direct approach, and manually demuxed the file to .wav using mplayer directly in linux, then installed lame and encoded the .wav to .mp3. It still took around 20mins Shocked . Virtualisation is pretty good these days Laughing .

For those who are interested, it would be dead easy to copy your script into bash and certainly in Ubuntu it is possible to add a script to the right click menu in Nautilus. Not too sure about other distros.

My PC is a dual core AMD 3800+ with 2 gigs memory - not exactly cutting edge, but certainly not slow. At 20mins for a 2 hour file, I can't imagine how long it would take to do the demux and re-encode on a slug let alone in a tap Crying or Very sad .

It is just for windows, but the principal is simple so feel free to nick as much as you want for a port to other platforms.

Don't know what virutulisation you are using but on my PC (Quad core @3.2GHz) it is little slower in VirtualPC than non-emulated, but in reality the demux is HDD bound, and the mp3 encode is CPU bound to a single thread as LAME does not seem to be multi core compiled.

Virtualbox with XP running under an Ubuntu host.

Haven't heard of java2c? Should've gone to specsavers Shocked (ok some libraries might be a problem but it's definitely doable)

Maybe, but even if you had gone there I still think we'd be just as far off having an implementation as we are now. Razz

Hi. I just tried installing rec2mp3, but the installation failed. I got error "Unpacking error 10: corrupted setup file!" while unpacking file "commons-net-1.3.0.jar" in "C:\Program Files\rec2mp3\ProjectX\lib". Any thoughts?

I'm running Vista SP1 on a PC.

@tichtich, it did the same for me, so I have re-uploaded it, and it now works for me, no idea what went wrong. You might need to clear your browsers cache before it will download the new version.

I would like to know if it works on vista as I have no way of testing vista.

Thanks, that worked for me now.
