Support transcoding audio files to MP3 for playback on IE/Edge/Safari/etc
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

With the MP3 patents expired and (hopefully) everything legally clear, T115170 is adding MP3 upload/ingest/playback support. It'd be nice to additionally transcode other audio files *to* MP3 for playback in Safari/IE/Edge which currently require the ogv.js JavaScript shim. (ogv.js is awesome but is a large chunk of JS, even just for Ogg Vorbis audio, and it'd be nice to avoid loading it.)

May require legal's sign-off for production, but likely clear if everything's cleared on T115170 and friends.

This should not be too difficult, as can use ffmpeg for the actual transcoding.
