Convert mp3 to aac using Soundconverter and gstreamer

I needed to convert my old Rooster - Joy Ride mp3 ringtone to aac format so I can use it on my iPhone.

After mucking around abit, found a neat solution.

First up install soundconverter which gives you a nice GUI to play with.

sudo apt-get install soundconverter

Then install gstreamer plugins with the appropriate codecs & encoders

# This package contains the aac encoder
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse

# This package contains the mp3 encoder
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse

Go ahead and enjoy your conversions!
