There is already a full implementation in a PHP class available for cloud convert, the link can be found on their website.

One alternative solution is to use some Web service API that performs that conversion.
Right now I do not see a class here that can do that, but it would probably not be hard to write one based on a Web service that exists out there.

I have checked around and was not able to find a totally free conversion service. The one I am leaning toward is cloudconvert which provides limited free access to their rest api and converts many document and media types.
If someone is already working on this, or knows of a better conversion service, let me know.

Yes, cloudconvert is one option although I did not see if there are any limits for a free service.
Zamzar is another option although their free account limits to 1MB files.
Then there is a myriad of Web sites that just provide forms to upload files to convert. Those could be scraped, although that is not a reliable solution as the owners may not intend to allow automated conversions and can add CAPTCHA inputs or other restrictions.

I don't think it is possible without an application like ffmpeg. I am not a sound expert, so they can correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that licensing fees or royalties would have to be paid by PHP to implement conversion using pure PHP.
