Welcome Friends,

This is my little corner of the Web where I keep my bits and pieces of know-how. Some of it I've written myself, some of it I've overheard at the market, and some of it has been told to me by little voices. I hope you find something useful on these pages and pass it on to others, correct me where you think I should be corrected, and comment where you feel you need to - all that we can make Linux even better and more popular.

Nero AAC Encoder 545 (129) installs

neroaac is a meta package that automates the download and installation of the Nero AAC Encoder.

Nero AAC is currently the best lossy compression format around. Although proprietary, it gives higher quality than its open counterpart, the FAAC. Compared to MP3, it is outright superior, plus it handles multichannel audio. When run with the highest quality settings, the difference between the source and resulting file is sometimes inaudible. AAC is generally supported by most hardware players.

If you have a jumbo audio collection and disk space is an issue, MPEG-4 AAC audio files are the way to go.


Paste these three lines in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:robert-tari/main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install neroaac


For help on syntax and parameters type:

neroAacEnc -help
