Converting the uploaded audio files

After the user has uploaded an audio file we must check the file format and the frequency to examine if the file is playable with the Flash player.

If the file is not playable it must be converted to mp3 with supported frequency.

I think that http://pymedia.org/ module can be used for that.

Any comments to that story? Tarmo?

If PyMedia is a good package, then we can do this. So I'd accept this story. Another module that requires extra software, so I guess this needs to be an optional feature.

I have no idea if PyMedia is a good package and if converting can be done with PyMedia... Somebody who is more competent in Python should study that package...

PyMedia was analyzed, and found lacking. We should just build a proper background "media processor" queue that can transfer anything into the formats that LeMill can use.
