Linux Convert .m4a to .mp3

A handy bash script for converting all m4a (iTunes) files in the current directory to mp3.

#!/bin/bash

for i in *.m4a; do
echo “Converting $i to wav…”
wavname=”$i.wav”
faad -o $wavname $i
echo “Converting $wavname to mp3…”
mp3name=”$i.mp3″
lame -h -b 192 $wavname $mp3name
echo “Cleaning up wav…”
rm $wavname
echo “Done. Output is $mp3name”
done

Paste the above into a file named m4a2mp3.sh and then chmod +x m4a2mp3.sh

cd into the directory containing your m4a files and then ./m41a2mp3.sh
