    I installed WinFF and converted a YouTube mp4 video to a wav file,but when I try to convert the same video to an mp3 I get an error in the terminal like this:unknown encoder libmp3lame.I think I miss some encoders.Should I download lame and libmp3lame0 from the repos or are there any more codecs needed?

    If you have medibuntu repos enabled, paste this command in terminal.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg libavcodec-extra-52 lame
    This will get all the necessary codecs into your system, make sure medibuntu is enabled.

    Also to speed up in WinFF, select 2 and check multi core in preferences.

    Also it's best not to re-convert things, you lose quality when you do so with lossy compression ;)

    Ubuntu restricted extras brings in x32 flash so it will clash in case you are running x64 flash. Medibuntu repo and the unstripped command will bring in all the requisite codecs.
