    .wav to .mp3?


    I'm trying to convert .wav to .mp3. I tried audacity but I don't know where to download the lame file. I tried sox but that doesn't support mp3 encoding? Mplayer with some debian based systems isn't too good so I'm not going to try that. How do I convert a .wav to a .mp3?

    Grip does the job fine, otherwise there's also kwavencoder for KDE, very handy . Integrates into Konqueror, you can convert music from within the file browser...
