http://sbooth.org/Max/



Quote:
If you would like to convert your audio from one format to another, Max can read and write audio files in over 20 compressed and uncompressed formats. For many popular formats the artist and album metadata is transferred seamlessly between the old and new files.

Max leverages open source components and the resources of Mac OS X to provide extremely high-quality output. For example, MP3 encoding is accomplished with LAME, Ogg Vorbis encoding with libVorbis, FLAC encoding with libFLAC, and AAC and Apple Lossless encoding with Core Audio. Many PCM conversions are also possible using Core Audio and libsndfile.

Max is integrated with FreeDB to permit automatic retrieval of compact disc information. For MP3, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey's Audio, AAC and Apple Lossless files Max will write this metadata to the output.

Max allows full control over where output files are placed and what they are named. If desired, Max will even add the encoded files to your iTunes library.

For advanced users, Max allows control over how many threads are used for converting and encoding, what type of error correction is used for audio extraction, and what parameters are used for each of the various encoders.

I realize this is an old thread, but as of mid-2007, Xiph is the way to go for OGG/Quicktime integration.

How about VLC?

Most Mac people I know, as well as most Windows and Linux people have VLC around because it'll play so much stuff with so little fuzz.

VLC is fine. Max is really something slightly different.

Max is a great program.
Saved me from many headaches when switching over from the PC.
I can't believe Apple hasn't adopted OGG and FLAC officially.

VLC is also an incredible program.
