Do this easily with ffxmpeg
Authored by: SOX on Apr 27, '05 01:55:43AM

You can do this with a no-brainer GUI interface using ffxmpeg. Download a copy and install it (has dependencies but it's not hard).

Once installed run it. The gui will ask you to drag and drop a file onto it. If you try dragging the .wav file on it wont work since it will say unrecognized format.

Dont fret. instead drag and drop the file onto the text input for the open dialog. then in the quick presets select "audiofile to MP3". (if you watch closely you will note the output target file name appear in the other test box.) Press the ENCODE button.

Voila, it coverts it.

All this is actually obvious. the only "trick" is that for some reason the drag and drop gives an error message. But it works anyway.

The article is about Real Audio, not .wav files. I tried this with Real Audio files too and it didn't work.
