Convert mov files to mp3

I think MrTopf’s MrTopfTV and now ComloungeTV are very high quality video casts of interest to the Python and more specifically the Plone community. The only problem is that I can’t listen to mov files on my very basic mp3 player.

Here’s a one-line fix thanks to Leeds and Keithlard from #gllug and

for nam in *.mov; do nice mplayer -ao pcm $nam -ao pcm:file=”$nam.wav” && nice lame -h -b 192 $nam.wav $nam.mp3; rm $nam.wav; done

I had a shot at tagging this onto the end of bashpodder but it wasn’t pulling down the mov files so I’ll have a look at that later.
