Review of audacity export mp3 from ubuntu 7.10

This was perfect, I couldn't figure out how to sfind the mp3 output. After searching and reading other threads for hours, this video is what got to exactly what I needed.

Thanks! I used to have the option to export mp3 and then all of a sudden it was gone in ubuntu gutsy gibbon. Why this is so hidden I have no idea, but thanks for saving me a lot of time! :)

Brilliant, thanks! No other documentation mentioned clicking on the 'browse for other folders' and selecting MP3 Files. Tremendously helpful!

Many thanks for a precisely targeted tutorial. In my attempts to export an Audacity project to MP3 under Ubuntu 7.10, I wasted an hour in various permutations of mistakes. Two minutes with your video, and now I'm fine. You're a great public service.

I've never done that in ubuntu so it will take me some time to figure it out.I thing avidemux can do this also cinelerra might be able to as well. I will need a small avi to play though.

Great video, please keep up the good work !

It's nice that you use Ubuntu, that's exactly what i need :-)

Can you please do a video about: "How to export the audio of an .avi video into .mp3 , using Ubuntu" ?

I did not found out how to do it so far but could make good use of that wisdom.

It really shouldn't be so tricky to export an MP3 using Audacity on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon!

Wow - having to use 'Browse for other folders' after 'Export' and the having to select 'MP3' from 'Wav, AIFF, and other uncompressed types' is not obvious at all! Only after that does it show MP3 in Options - crikey, that's not intuitive at all.

Good find!

I know we spoke about it in email - it is really simple on the Windows build of Audacity.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
