Soundconverter not OGG

Hi all
my english is not perfect

I can no longer convert put mp3 in Ogg there is no longer the option in soundconverter any ideas?

strange, on my machine i still have Ogg :grey_question:

yes I do not understand why I do not list them my version is as follows …

It doesn’t have any optional dependencies but perhaps it needs something else installed for that functionality?

I installed all the dependencies written on the wiki

Soundconverter doesn’t need any additional codecs for conversion. As far as I know, it utilizes gstreamer capabilities for decoding and encoding.

What is the output of yay -Qs gst-
I don’t like reading output in screenshots. I prefer text in code tags. :wink:

I’ve used soundconverter in the past, i sometimes encoutered some issue like no ogg, since i’ve moved to

For me the best converters out there are XCFA (unluckily no further development by the, if I’m right, french developers; still keep a package of the last version as a backup, because no more availability in AUR) and Soundkonverter (most complete in my opinion; supports a ton of formats). I still hope that someone will pick up development of XCFA.

do with the command yay -Qs gst-

I have already heard of ciano never try

I advanced on my side, I found by myself the solution to my problem it was a missing package … That digital ink for nothing … Thank you all the same for your help!

Additional output on my system, which provides ogg format in soundconverter :

local/gst-plugin-gtk 1.18.5-2
    Multimedia graph framework - gtk plugin
local/gst-plugins-base 1.18.5-1
    Multimedia graph framework - base plugins
local/gst-python 1.18.5-3
    Multimedia graph framework - python bindings

Maybe installing those already solves the issue.

I accidentally deleted the package in my list, which would have solved the issue. :smiley:
