Short and simple tutorial that shows how to quickly convert one audio file type to another, using Switch, a free software utility from NCH Software.

Python Lesson 16 (Python the Hard Way)
 
02:37
I've been working through Zed Shaw's "Learn Python the Hard Way," and I made a video about Lesson 16, because it writes into a file, and I thought some students might find that difficult to follow if they are complete beginners. http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ex16.html NOTE: This video doesn't explain the whole lesson! For that, go to the URL above. For my notes about learning Python "the hard way," see: http://babydatajournalism.tumblr.com/tagged/Zed-Shaw .
