CD Ripper
« on: September 15, 2008, 09:25:31 pm »
So.
I have Ubuntu and so I use Rhythmbox and wanted to import a cd. As I also would like to have the music on my win pc, with iTunes, I'd like to have mp3s (it looks like iTunes doesn't like ogg, I just tried).
But somehow, Soundjuicer (I think thats the cd import program) won't let me change the format, so I can't tell it to make mp3s (although others are available, but changing doesn't work; reinstall also doesn't work and doesn't let me change the format)

I hope now that someone tells me a good program or that someone knows how I can manage that Sound Juicer lets me change the format.
(it is Ubuntu with Gnome Desktop, if you need that info)

If meanwhile I solved the problem otherwise, I'll directly tell you...

My Update
I think that it has something to do with the library (or data, or whatever you call it) that SoundJuicer uses. I deleted the ogg-import-profile, and after the reinstall it is still gone.
Does somebody know how to find out which one it is, or just what it is? (I'm trying to noob-fix it :D with everything I know or hope I know...)

So why even bother replying? It's not nessecary to rub it in that you can do something she quite clearly said she can't.

As for your problem, futilite, have you tried looking for other open source cd rippers? I did a quick search and found this;

Hope it helps :/

yeah, there are plenty of them I guess, but I thought I needed now one that works :D thanks for your effort =) I will look at that.
I could also rip it with iTunes on my win-pc, but I don't like the fact that it's not working (like I want it to) on the ubuntu-pc...

Wtf..."quite clearly said she can't." I don't see that anywhere in the OP, I am not sure how Ubuntu works, I am stating I use WMP for ripping...can Ubuntu not use any windows based applications?

I really don't think anybody would want to use WMP to rip audio. :P

I tried out ripperX, everything worked well and I have mp3s now. Except the fact that those mp3s can't be played by anything !?
Rhythmbox (Music Player) doesn't, I didn't wonder. But Gxine doesn't and the "preview/prehear" feature also doesn't work with them.
Why does this have to drive me mad? :(

Edit: They have the same size etc.
So I gave up now and used iTunes. <3.
But if anyone finds this thread in a few weeks and still has some good advice, I'll take it ;)

itunes doesn't like a lot of things...
:P

for Sound Juicer, you just need to install the "ugly" set of plugins...

Code: [Select]
sudo aptitude install gstreamer0.10-plugins-uglyshould do the trick...

the mp£ option should now be selectable in Sound Juicer...

if you want VBR settings, go into the settings for mp£ in Sound Juicer, and change the gstreamer pipeline to this:
Code: [Select]
raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc mode=1 vbr=4 quality=1 preset=1001 vbr-max-bitrate=320 ! xingmux ! id3v2mux
and use vbr-max-bitrate to adjust the max bitrate quality (:. filesize)...

Thanks alot... I already found out that it was missing the most important thing: lame... (I wonder why it isn't installed automatically... but ok, now I know what is important!)
