Convert Audio File Formats From The Linux Command Line

Posted by Weston Ganger

I wanted to shrink the size of some .wav files by converting them to .mp3

Theres a great command line tool you can install called libav-tools

To install on Ubuntu run this, otherwise use your distro’s install method

sudo apt-get install libav-tools

Now you can convert files with this simple command syntax.

avconv -i file1.wav file2.mp3
