    Does anyone know of good server side software to convert common audio types to h.264 and .ogg so they can be played in an html5 audio player? I want to make a simple way for me and others if I decide to open the service to store and play music in the cloud. I'm an experienced web designer and have no concerns with writing all the code to do this I just need something to convert the files and preferably something that is open so I don't have to worry about licensing issues when and if I chose to open te service with ads to others.

    FFMPEG handles all of this.

    It handles tons of stuff as long as you compile it with the correct options. You may need to compile other libraries first to enable certain features in FFMPEG though (such as the MP3 LAME library to get better quality MP3 encodes).
