    I wrote this while waiting for the Pre to come out so that I could fit all my music on to my Pre. This is not an application for the Pre itself, but for a linux computer. It converts OGG Vorbis to HE-AAC preserving tags and directory structure. It uses Nero's free AAC encoder, and supports multithreading. The reason I used Nero's encoder instead of FAAC, was to ensure the best quality output.

    Requirements:
    Be sure to download Nero's AAC encoder(neroAacEnc and neroAacTag), and put it in your PATH. You also need oggdec and vorbiscomment.

    Usage:
    Use ogg2heaac.py -h for options. This is the command I use to convert my music:
    Code:
    ogg2heaac.py.txt -i /mnt/usb/Music/ -o ./final/ -q -t 3 -x "-hev2 -q 0.1"
    Where
    • /mnt/usb/Music is my collection
    • ./final is the output folder
    • -q tells it to skip already transcoded files
    • 3 is the number threads
    • -hev2 -q 0.1 tells it to use quality 0.1 and HE-AAC v2


    WARNING: Although it has not eaten my music (yet ) don't say I didn't warn you if it eats yours. For extra safety, mark your collection read-only. Consider this program alpha quality
