    I've got .wav files that are automatically saved into sub-folders. I'd like to run a batch script every X minutes to go through those folders, find all of the .wav files, convert them to mp3 (in the same subfolder) and delete the original .wav file.

    I've been looking at ffmpeg, but can't seem to find a Windows batch file that would do the trick. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    I need a command-line solution that can be scheduled to run automatically.
