I am running Ubuntu 20.04 on a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Tablet. A few years ago I wrote a bash script using soundconverter to transcode some of my music to mp3 files when I need to use a player that only has mp3 capability (like my car and my swimming player). I tried to use my script recently and got the following error
faac gstreamer element not found
I did some research and found that the faac plugin in not included in the Ubuntu 20.04 package
-ugly. But I also found that there is a lame (mp3 library) gstreamer plugin which is installed. Additionally I found that running soundconverter in gui mode could transcode to mp3 without problem. So I have three possible solutions but don't know how to pursue any of therm
If soundconverter can transcode to mp3 in gui, I am guessing there is some option that will enable this in batch mode. Does anyone know how?
Is there a way to ask soundconverter to use gstreamer's lame plugin rather then the faac plugin to transcode to mp3?
Does anyone know how to install the gstreamer faac plugin on Ubuntu 20.04?
