Convert mb4 to mp3 files in one run with ffmpeg


Folks at Defcon.org have been somewhat inconsistent in publishing their conference audio archives - once they do it in mb4 format, once in mp3 . As I listen to them on my mobile phone during my commuting to the work  and it doesn't accept anything but mp3 I had to first convert all audio files from mb4 to mp3 format. Not a problem though, the one-liner below will find all files ending with .mb4 in the current folder and convert them to .mp3 files preserving the filenames.

find . -iname "*.m4b" -exec ffmpeg -i {} -acodec libmp3lame {}.mp3 \;
