There is an option to only convert mp3 with a bitrate more or equal than 192kbps?

I'm not sure I rather want oggs. The quality per size is

better, but it takes longer to seek.

True that this will degrade quality, but if you're
going for similar bitrates, and the MP3 is at
CD'ish quality, I doubt you'll notice a difference
(unless you're making low-bitrate Vorbis files.)
I've not used this script, but rather just done
the conversion from shell; choosing an average
bitrate of 128kbps for a Vorbis track, and
converting from a good MP3 yielded audio files
that sounded, IMHO, as good as the MP3.

Since converting from MP3 to Ogg is going to reduce the quality even further, could you please add a disclaimer to the program? Many people don't know this, and when I go to grab an Ogg file from somewhere, I don't want to end up with some crappy sounding audio file.

Without the disclaimer, you're basically on par with Xing, releasing an encoding program which produces crap output and making the overall quality of what's available go completely downhill. I'm not ripping on your app at all, but uneducated users need to know that this WILL reduce quality.

I think moving to ogg will take a lot of
re-ripping.. but it'll happen - it just needs more
media attention. Specially in the windows world
(more users = more ripping = more encoding).

[no offense intended]

Yes. Moving between any two lossy formats will
degrade quality some. But the script is really
there for the same reason gif -> png tools exist,
to get it out of the patented format and into an
open one ;-)

Does converting mp3->ogg degrage the quality of
the music?
