Probably.  I was really waiting for what looks like a 'real' final release before committing effort to it.

Thanks for the reminder.  I'll be away for about four weeks from 24 December, so it may not be until after I return. If it looks like I've forgotten, feel free to remind me again!

In the mean time the people that use Linux and want to easily convert to Opus can use:
- Soundconverter (http://soundconverter.org/) (only cbr).
- gstreamer pipelines (eg. FILE=somefile.mp3; gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location="$FILE" ! decodebin ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! audio/x-raw, rate=48000 ! opusenc cbr=false constrained-vbr=false bitrate=112000 ! oggmux ! filesink location="$FILE".opus).

I don't think gstreamer pipelines are meant for end-user command line usage.

The equivalent ffmpeg command!
Code: [Select]
ffmpeg -i somefile.flac -ab 112k somefile.opus


Add `-frame_duration 20` if your ffmpeg build is old. ffmpeg used to default to 10. The manual page should tell you the default used in your build.

One shouldn't convert from mp3 to opus btw.

"remind me again!"  Excuse me, but what about opusdropxpd ?

Pixar, in the meantime, you could attempt to use the precompiled binaries of opus-tools at mozilla.org (https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/opus/win32/).

A simple command-line for a shortcut to opusenc.exe such as: "--bitrate 96" will allow you to drag and drop a .wav file onto the shortcut.

This almost replicates the functionality of the _dropxpd applications.

If you want an GUI for Opus and use Windows, try LameXP. It encodes to Opus, among other formats.

Most linux distros that have a GStreamer opusenc have the opusenc binary in their repositories.

opusenc file.flac -o file.opus

works great. Copies all the tags over too. And unless I mis-understand what it is doing, it applies album gain (if specified in the flac) before encoding and gives a R128 track gain in the metadata for playing back outside of album context. I don't think a GStreamer pipe will do that.
