Hmm. After playing with ripping to .mp3, it looks like UpdateMedia is
writing .id3 tags for MP3 files. My script modifications write Title,
Artist, Album, Year, Track Number and Genre information. UpdateMedia
writes Title, Artist, Album and Composter information, but doesn't
include Track Number or Genre information, which I think is worth
having. I'm guessing UpdateMedia is where all tag information should
be written. I should be able to get it to use Metaflac to edit the
tag for .flac files, and obviously UpdateMedia can edit .id3 tags, but
I don't know of a good simple ogg comment editor. Does anyone know of
Incidentally, the ripping script doesn't use the quality settings for
MP3 or Ogg rips. I don't know if a Mantis report has been filed, but
I'm guessing it was on the Pluto guy's todo list. I recommend ripping to Flac (no options) until that gets fixed. That way you know what you're getting.
In any case, the script should now work correctly for MP3, FLAC, and Ogg rips. Again, paste the
included ripDiskWrapper.sh in your /pluto/bin directory. Save your
Also, make sure you set the execute permissions correctly. If you
don't know what I'm talking about, after copying type chmod a+x
ripDiskWrapper.sh Please let me know if you have any issues.
On another note, Lame wasn't installed by default, so ripping to MP3
failed outright. I'm surprised it wasn't installed by default by
LinuxMCE. Can anyone else confirm this?
