How to Convert FLAC files to MP3

Some audiophile types love FLAC files, but I can’t really tell the difference between a flac file and an mp3. All my digital music collection is in mp3 format (I convert all the iTunes stuff I buy from m4a to mp3 as soon as i get it). You can convert flac to mp3 using WinAmp Pro (but that’s not free). This method is completely free and preserves any tags (artist name, track name album name etc) information.

Program you need

1. Download and install Foobar2000, select typical install and accept all the defaults.

Disable Thumbs.db creation on network drives in Windows

Windows Thumbs.db files can cause a great deal of annoyance when they’re placed on network locations. Not only can it cause extra resource consumption, but can inadvertently lock files and folders that otherwise need to be manipulated.

However, it’s easy to turn off the generation of these files. To do so, just follow these steps:

  • Click Start, type ‘gpedit.msc’ and hit enter.
  • Go to User Config > Admin Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer
  • Locate ‘Turn off the caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files’ and double click on it to edit the policy
  • Set the Policy to ‘Enabled’ and click Apply, then ok.

That’s it. I don’t remember if it requires a reboot to fully take effect, but Thumbs.db files will not be created or used.

Setup OBION iOS/android receiving incoming call

You need to tell your OBi where to send the incoming calls. At the moment it only sends the incoming calls to the phone connected to your OBi. Assuming that GV is set up on sp1, then change the InboundCallRoute to this:

Voice Services > SP1 Service > X_InboundCallRoute:
{ph,pp(ob290123456)}

Where 290123456 is your softphone number.

This will send incoming calls to the phone attached to your OBi and to your softphone number associated with the android app. Whichever answers first will take the call.

Make changes via the Obi Expert Configuration pages. From your OBi Dashboard, click on your OBi number and follow the prompts to get there. To change a value uncheck both boxes to the right of the value and leave them unchecked. After changing the value, press submit at the bottom of the page and wait a few minutes for the Obi to reboot.
