### Introduction
This is a Zentiy dialog script wrapper around ffmpeg. It was written for my
father who wanted to convert FLAC and OGG files to MP3 for his media player.

I'm developing an open source monitoring app called Leaf Node Monitoring, for windows, linux & android. Go check it out!

Consider sponsoring me on Github. It means the world to me if you show your appreciation and you'll help pay the server costs.

Features in v4:
  * Extension select before folder.
  * Filter on extension
  * Check if files exist in folder.
  * Added .flv to input format (Youtube ripped videos)
  * Added .aac to input/output format
  * Quality selector for ffmpeg
  * Removed folder check.
  * Added nautilus open when converting finished. 
Note that you'll need zenity and ffmpeg:
    sudo apt-get install zenity ffmpeg
