  I've downloaded ogg2mp3.py (http://emptybits.com/ogg2mp3/ogg2mp3)
  by Darren Stone http://bitmason.com, I've compared two
  conversions.

  Thus far, the perl utility produces a clearer playback, but I have
  not yet played with the options available from the python script.

  Both scripts rely on oggdec, ogginfo and lame.
  On the mac available through macports, available on other *nixes as
  well.

  If anyone is interested, I'd welcome feedback on the python script
  above and I will fiddle with it (not being an audio expert) to see
  if I can get the playback improved.

  I've looked at pymedia also. Have not tested it.

  FYI.cheers
