EPOC/PDA software > Software > EPOC/PDA

Desktop utilities - and software for - portable devices such as PDAs (in particular Psions running EPOC), and portable media players (eg. MP3 and video transcoding).


Useful for transcoding radio programmes to MP3s for listening on portable devices (eg. the Archos Gmini 400 or any other MP3 player). It will try to be clever about ID3 tags and output filenames, and can even automatically copy the resulting MP3 elsewhere using SCP (if required).

Key features

Requires mplayer (with RealAudio codecs) and LAME. It should also work (or be trivial to modify) with Windows Media streams or, in fact, anything else mplayer can handle.
