Last week, I wanted to quickly convert part of my music collection (which has entirely and painstakingly been ripped into FLAC files) into AAC format so I could play it on my 2nd generation iPod Nano (which unfortunately isn’t supported by Rockbox yet). I couldn’t quickly find a tool that would do the job while preserving the track tags, so I quickly made a script to do it myself.

Since there is probably a need for something like this, I decided to add a bit of spit and polish to it and release it here under the GPL. I’ve named the script flac2aac, and it can be downloaded here. Hope this benefits somebody.
