if on linux
( and if not - you should be )

this bash f.sh  will get you started

you want to loop through the dir
so for every f.webm  do
your cmd to transcode to mp3

save as mp3_script.sh  , make executable , run with ./mp3_script.sh
< >  those are the full path


srcDir=<where your many f.webm>
dest=<where you want the mp3>

cd $srcDir

for f in *.webm; do

ffmpeg -i $srcDir/${f%.*}.webm  <your params> $dest/${f%.*}.mp3
