Convert .wma files into .mp3

Another thing that's been troubling me regarding audio files is those damn .wma-s that cannot be played by my iPod. So it's time for a handy script that will convert .wma into .mp3:

for x in *.wma ; do mplayer -vo null -vc dummy -af resample=44100 -ao pcm:waveheader "$x" ; lame -m s audiodump.wav -o "${x%wma}mp3" ; rm audiodump.wav ; done

Pretty impressive – lame's manual page deserves a good read.
