I need to free up some disc space on my hardrives. A while ago you folks turned me on to fubar so now I can play my flac and shn fles with out converting them to wav. So now I need to convert those files that I converted to wav , to flac.
I did a serch on the tecnobabble forum and did not realy find anythig. any help would be great. And a guide like the Shn to flac guide would be realy great :hmm: :D

Foobar can convert your files to FLAC (right-click, Convert > Settings...) (RainDawg's approach)
FLAC Frontend (http://mikewren.com/flac/) can also convert your wav files to FLAC (my approach)
dBpowerAMP Music Converter (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm) is also capable of creating FLAC files (third party approach)

shntool is a handy tool http://www.etree.org/shnutils/shntool/

If your not big on using MS-DOS, you can use
Multi-Frontend http://members.home.nl/w.speek/multi.htm or Batchenc http://members.home.nl/w.speek/batchenc.htm are very easy programs.

I find Batchenc a very cool program and easy to use.

Honestly, using FLAC frontend is easy, clean, and does the task perfectly. That would be the recommended method. I do mine with foobar (of course) just because I try to have as few programs installed on my computer as possible.

Either way, you've just gotten a list of 4-5 things to try, so go for it!

thanks so much !

Foobar works real nice, and I have already freed up 15 gigs.

I'm assuming that in the 8 + years since this question was asked, the original poster has gotten his answer, if not, I'd recommend traderslittlehelper, it's free, easy and will serve most, if not all, of the needs of torrent downloaders/uploaders.
