My audio CDs are archived as monolithic flac files (one large file per CD) with embedded cue sheet. I am looking for a way to create ogg Vorbis (or mp3) files from those flac files for my hardware audio player.

Preferably, the following criteria are met:

  • Command-line driven for easy automation.
  • One file per track. (So a single flac file gives multiple ogg-files.)
  • Automatic addition of meta-data to the files, either by reading the meta-data from the flac files (which was set with flactag before), or by getting the data from the MusicBrainz server.
  • Place all the files into a new folder "Artist - Album Title", and name the files to something like "Track Number - Track Title".
