TunesConvert

Overview

TunesConvert is a simple utility that converts an iTunes library into audio files encoded using FLAC. This allows you to move iTunes music to non-Apple devices. TunesConvert is not able to transcode files protected with DRM. For information about iTunes DRM, see the support page on the issue.

TunesConvert uses the GStreamer media framework and relies on plugins provided by the following packages:

  • gstreamer
  • gst-plugins-base
  • gst-plugins-good
  • gst-plugins-bad

Run TunesConvert, select an output directory, and press “Transcode”.

My research interests include free and open source software, system security, and network security.
