    CD to mp3 on FC 2


    Hi,
    I'm trying to rip a CD to mp3s and I realized that the program sound juicer is just for that. However, it seems that it doesn't support mp3s. I googled around and found that I need gstreamer-plugins-extras. The problem is my version of gstreamer is higher than the gstreamer-plugins-extras. Mind shed some light? Thanks.

    Try ripperX. It's fast, simple and small.

    Another option you can try is "ogg". ( ogg info )

    You can always use oggs, unless you "need" mp3 for a portable cd player that only reads mp3.

    A simple description is ogg's are basically mp3's only their compression algo's are not propriatry. ogg's are supposed to also get better quality for the same filesize. I use them for windows and linux.

    It's even happening in commercial games. (UT2004 uses oggs). And winamp will play oggs. So current software support is pretty good.

    Ogg is not, however, a piece of ripping/encoding software. RipperX uses oggenc to encode if you tell it to. And yes, it is better. I rip to 320K VBR ogg vorbis.

    320 kb Vorbis!? Uhmm... do you really feel that's necessary? ;-)

    There is a short way to spell "obsessive-compulsive quality whore audiophile." And that's s-a-r-u-m-o-n-t.
