Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

When I do this in gnome-sound-recorder 2.31.6-0ubuntu2
under Ubuntu 10.10:
1. Open Sound Recorder.
2. File > Open something.wav
3. Save as something.ogg

Expected result is "something.ogg", encoded as lossy (.ogg type).
It would choose the format based on the extension, like GIMP does.

Actual result is a zero byte file called "something.ogg.wav".

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.

The sound recorder is not a sound converter, it's made to record audio in a format not to transcode files in the save dialog, that seems an upstream feature request but a very low priority one, to send to GNOME since those are the ones writting the software, Ubuntu will not likely invest time in that feature
