Post Audacity: wav (wma-proprietary) to mp3  [Solved]
Probably a case of overthinking - again :bagoverhead:

Simply trying to convert a wav (wma-proprietary) file to a mp3 file

Using audacity (1.3.12-beta), got the "none of them understood this file format" error message when I tried to open up the wav file

Did a little research and understood that I needed to find the FFmpeg Import / Export Library ( Preferences>Library ).

Tried both libavformat.so.52 and libavformat.so.52.64.2 that were in /usr/lib, and neither would load into audacity.

Any ideas?

Edit: Kernel[-2.6.36-1-mepis64-smp x86_64-]

Did overthink it. :p

Simply used my trusty VLC Media Player to do the task.

Media > Convert/Save

Thanks for this. It'll be good to have an alternative to Audacity.
