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 https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/ciano/

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:
