    Advice Please - FLAC to MP3

    Hi Everyone. Some advice please.

    Currently have LMS running on Windows 7 Microserver. About 300 albums, all FLAC.

    I want to select about 100 tracks and convert from FLAC to run on my ipod in the car.

    So what's the easiest way? Do i install itunes on the Microserver, or are there better ways?

    I use EZ CD Convertor, this can do whole directories or all your collection in one hit.

    Edit: Also carries over tags !

    MediaMonkey does a nice job of this - particularly if you want to put in on your phone as well.

    Advice Please - FLAC to MP3

    Look into mp3fs https://khenriks.github.io/mp3fs/ which is a fuse file
    system which converts flac to MP3 on the fly.

    A great setup, and one I use, but more suited to constantly keeping your collection synchronized between your home and car. Sounds like the OP wants to hand-pick a subset and convert it once.

    I agree, it's the best I've ever used. You do pay a nominal amount if you keep it, but it has a three week fully functional trial. It nicely supports preservation of tags, and the output location can be easily and powerfully defined (e.g. artist/album/songs, etc). Spoon, the developer, generally responds to queries, mostly respectfully, but sometimes with a bit of an edge for the stupider questions.

    dbpoweramp for me, too.

    It's been awhile since I've done this, but I think you can rip a CD to both FLAC and mp3 at the same time if you know you want a lossy version.
    2-SB3s, 1-Touch, and a Raspberry Pi B+ with TekDevice dacBerry 3+ running piCorePlayer. Mac Mini as a server (OS X Yosemite). Direct Ethernet connection (1-SB3 and the Raspberry Pi) and power-line (1-SB3 and Touch). iPeng is my controller of choice. LMS 7.8.1

    Tried to install this on my Centos7 system but too many dependencies are unmet

    Looks like a great idea
