    Audio/Video conversion


    Hi all, I just made the final switch to Linux, and I have a lot of audio and video files that are unplayable to me. Does anyone know any good software to convert/play any and/or all of the following file types?

    .wma, .mpg, .wma, .wav, .m4a

    Converters would be preferable to players.

    Thanks a ton!

    mplayer should be able to handle those file types.

    Many different packages are available for linux.

    A couple of good places to start looking are "softpedia" and "freshmeat":

    As "designbydave" pointed out, mplayer is good. It is more than just a "player". It also has an encoder/converter "mencoder" that comes with it, that is very good.
