MP3 to OGG converter

Be aware that converting mp3->ogg or the reverse will usually incur a loss
of quality.  Since they use utterly different lossy algorithms, you
compound the artifacts when you recode.  Despite ogg frequently being
smaller for the same quality as an mp3, expect larger files if you intend
to preserve the quality present in the mp3 original. (coming from a
lossless source I always choose ogg, but if the source is already mp3 I
rarely convert as I've been unhappy with the results too many times - then
again I have picky ears)

That said, yes, ffmpeg is a good choice for converting.  :)
