    MP3 converter


    Since i've turned to linux, i haven't found a app that converts my CD's into mp3's, mp3 to other formats or simply burn my mp3s. I have used k3b but some errors have occured when trying to burn multisession. Back with windows, i used MusicMatch 9.0 to convert files. Is there an app for linux that can take care of this for me?

    You can google it or use grip or go to www.kde-apps.org and search

    Minimal on the requirements, not pretty, but it does what you need it to do (and well ):

    I use this to rip my CDs to VBR ogg-vorbis (open-source algorithm, better sound quality than mp3).

    Yeh mp3 is a proprietary format and IIRC you need to pay for a licence/royalty to use it? So GNU/Linux uses OGG which is free and you can get plugins to use it with windows.

    You probably already have kaudiocreator installed, it will rip files into mp3, ogg, etc

    I do have the kaudiocreator app. I will try to use it, either way, i think i found the grip app some were talking about here. The thing is that with kaudiocreator, the CD tracks don't appear, and actually, when i put a original music CD, my computer won't read it, not even in konqueror. I guess something else is wrong.

    What format do i have to convert my mp3s to so that regular audio devices can read my cds? Like discmans and regular cd stereos.
