Right. Some of you may heard about me making a movie for Xenocide; I am using your lovingly created musical compositions for the backround music. But I have a slight problem. I can only use certain formats, and .ogg isn't one of them. What I request is your compositions in .wav format (a pain I know) or a source of a freeware converter. Thanks.

Search for a demo converter on google. There are a lot of them. Asking for wavs is rediculous because a 5-minute track would be 50mb.

Do a search for mp3 converter, I found one that converts between mp3, ogg, and wav. Allows you to choose the bitrate as well. Used it to convert the various music tracks here to a lower bandwidth mps format for the X-Net viewer.

Right, ok. I shall also check on what other formats are usable as well. I believe there was a long list, but not including the one we are using.

i hate those converteres. After 2 days, you need to pay alot of money.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

The mp3 converter allows 30 conversions, 10 from each format, but if you have Win2K pro or XP pro, which requires admin rights to edit the registry, then run the app as a normal user. It can't update the registry, and you always have 30 uses left. Cheesy yes, but I never do stuff as admin, and it's not my fault the app isn't coded properly.

That's a real pain in the a*# indeed. I'm not shure if I will be able to put them online in PCM Wave format because of the size and the bandwidth (10min movie = 10 min music file = approx. 100 meg :wacko: so with more files it could easily become 500 meg). I'll try anyway :wink:

That's exactly what I was saying. Please don't fill up the Xenocide server with PCM wavs.

Hmmm, then, it'd better be not to put those online I suppose. Maybe u should try to convert them anyway ^_^ or what do you people think?

Look for a prog on sourceforge called CDeX. Its a cd ripper/burner but it also converts mp3's to wav's, wav's to cd and pretty much any combination in between. The best thing about it is that it's open source and free.

Also you might want to run a search for a wav editor on sourceforge as well, if cdex doesn't support ogg's then there will be something that does. Heck the default progs that come with most soundcards can do basic converting so have a look on your soundcard cd and see whats there.
