zenity bash audio converter script

The script created by WebUpd8 reader Remy which we were telling you about a few days ago just got updated.

The new version can convert to / from two more formats: flv and aac (it used to work for lac, mp3, wav and ogg), and an quality selector for ffmpeg has also been added. This version also checks if a file exists and asks if you want to open Nautilus.

To use it, firstly install zenity and ffmpeg:
sudo apt-get install zenity ffmpeg 

And then download and run the script using these commands:
wget http://raymii.org/cms/content/downloads/easyconverter.sh
chmod +x easyconverter.sh
