Hi Guys!

Do you ever stuck with DVD’s or CD’s player while playing your favourite audio’s?

So, first you all need to know about ffmpeg.

After compilation, you can convert any type of audio and video according to your requirement.

Here -i means input file.

So simple, isn’t it.

Well if you want to play with ffmpeg, like setting its bit rate, channel and frequency.
You need to compile ffmpeg with libfdk_aac library for high quality output.

I will tell you by giving some examples.

To convert .wav to .aac

ffmpeg -i song003.wav -c:a libfdk_aac -ar 44100 -ab 128000 -ac 2 wav.aac

ar to set frequency
ab to set bitrate
ac to channel like stereo or mono.

To convert .m4a to .aac

ffmpeg MediaCoder.m4a -c:a libfdk_aac -vbr 4 m4a.aac

vbr stands for variable bit rate. It may vary from 1 to 5. For further detail you can check this link. https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC

To convert .wma to .aac

ffmpeg -i Kronke.wma -c:a libfdk_aac -vbr 4 wma.aac

Above given commands convert your audio file specifications to Stream #0:0: Audio: aac (LC), 44100 Hz, stereo, fltp, 128 kb/s.
