A tool for the transcoding of audio from lossless sources
# OATS OATS is Another Transcoding Script
OATS is a commandline tool that makes transcoding easy on Windows, Linux, or Mac. The only prerequisites for OATS are FFmpeg and Python3. It can also make torrents.
## A quick intro
OATS has one main script, called oats. Once installed you can make a quick config file to get started:
This will make a file in the current working directory named oats.conf. The options accessible there are the same as in the interface, so you can configure the defaults for your use. Any options specified at the command line take priority over the config file.
To see the options for oats, do the following:
Here’s a sample command for transcoding two albums to MP3 320 and MP3 V2, the resulting files will be put into a directory named transcodes:
oats –output-dir transcodes –formats 320,V2 Album1 Album2
If you want to enable torrent creation, you can set the following options:
oats –torrent true –torrent-dir torrents –announce-url https://blah.com MyAlbum
All options not supplied to the command line will use their values set in the config file.
## TODO - Things I want to do that are not yet done
- Refine ALAC support
- Provide Vorbis support
- Provide Opus support
- Maybe provide options for channel operations, stereo -> mono is popular bitate conservation method for audiobooks
- Possibly provide workaround for Windows Powershell tab-completion bug
- Support magnet links
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
