hi

is it possible to transcode from flac to mp3 without using any of the available gui's and without creating a wave file from the flac file first and then converting that wave file to mp3.

i would like to understand how this can be done (if it can be done).

Ax

edit-----------
basically, what command line could be used to do this? im guessing i would need to make use of the stdin and stdout?

Thanks

Sure it can be done in a win32 console window (Start | Run | cmd.exe)
Make sure flac.exe and lame.exe are in one of the directories in the %PATH% variable (or specify full path to them):
CODE
C:\> flac.exe -d --stdout myfile.flac | lame.exe --preset fast standard - myfile.mp3

I'll just add that your mp3's will be missing tags from your flac files if they had them. AFAIK, the only way to get them out is with metaflac...
