2013-01-22 One of my favourite podcasts, Chub Creek ... 6 years ago
One of my favourite podcasts, Chub Creek switched to m4a audio files and those don't play on my iRiver ifp-795 mp3 player which means I don't get around to listening to them. Open source and some scripting to the rescue can fix this, I found some good hints at .m4a to .mp3 - Linuxquestions wiki and tried them.

CC125.m4a file info:

LC AAC  2934.618 secs, 2 ch, 44100 Hz

writer: Dave
title: CC125

Decoding CC125.m4a took: 22.10 sec. 132.79x real-time.
And the next step is easy:

Good way to warm up the CPUs on the computer: I can see from the 'sensors' output on which core the calculations are running. With two cores, running two processes like these parallel works fine.
