    If you don't mind using the command line, see askubuntu.com/questions/147944/…

  • Close-voters: This is not a duplicate of that question; that question is considerably narrower. It could potentially be edited to make it broader, but it's not a good idea to dupe this to it until then (and we should probably hold off on doing that, too, to see what kind of answers appear here and if it makes sense to try to make these one question).

There is a good soundconverter called "soundconverter" in the Softwarecenter. I made the test, tags are maintained when converting from .mp3 to .ogg.

You can install it with the following command in a terminal.

sudo apt install soundconverter

    omg, it makes multithread conversion of all files same time automatically (no need to select the format) :O Jun 19, 2015 at 23:34

For command line usage there is a nice package dir2ogg.
