I discovered ‘MediaCoder‘ the other day. It’s great. I am using it to transcode all my wma audio files to mp3 format.

Previously I was using VLC and a batch file to do this for me, but using MediaCoder is waaay easier.

VLC with batch file:
@echo off
SET vlcExe="D:\Program Files\VLCPortable\VLCPortable.exe"
FOR /F "delims=" %%I IN ('dir *.wma /a:-d/b/s') DO CALL :processdir "%%~pI" "%%~nI" "%%~fI" "%%~dI"
%vlcExe% --playlist-enqueue vlc:quit

SET sOut=:sout=#transcode{acodec=mp3,ab=128,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=”%~4%~1%~2.mp3″}}
%vlcExe% –playlist-enqueue “%~3” %sOut%


With MediaCoder:

  1. Select where you want the transcoded files to be saved. ie <Original Folder>
  2. Choose what format you want your files in: ie LAME MP3
