gnupod_addsong(1) upload music to the iPod


gnupod_addsong [OPTION]...


Upload Music to the iPod. This Version can read MP3 AAC/ALAC (no DRM) and PCM (aka .wav) files. It can even read FLAC files if Audio::FLAC is aviable and the --decode switch was used. (Note: The iPod can't play FLAC files, in this case, gnupod_addsong converts the FLAC files 'on-the-fly' using 'flac')
