Detect media information
« on: April 03, 2007, 06:38:16 pm »
When you rip CDs in Myth, it fetches the album, artist and songtitles automatically. This should be a feature in LinuxMCE too. I think Myth uses libcdaudio:
http://libcdaudio.sourceforge.net/

Same for DVDs if possible.

I see there is an option to add a software package under Advanced-Software-Add Software called "id-my-disc". Is that what I'm looking for?

I've tried to install it, but it doesn't work. libdvdcss2 is installed, but w32codecs and id-my-disc doesn't seem to finish (isinstalled=i, compared to isinstalled=I for libdvdscc2). I installed w32codecs and libdvdcss2 prior to LinuxMCE. Anyone got this working?

Does Myth support Mp3 audio? I have some cds that need burning and I have not been able to find some for Linux as of yet.

Yes, Mythmusic can play MP3-files. I think it does by default, because MAD Mp3 decoder plugin is required for Mythmusic to install. Ref.: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/MythMusic

As for burning CDs, you mean creating an audio CD from MP3-files? I recommend K3b.
