Is it possible to rip audio CDs as MP3s rather than FLAC?
I prefer to save the space on the core, plus would like to copy some of the files to a portable media player.

From the admin site, under basic info -> installation, there is an option down the bottom that allows selection of the ripping format for CDs. It allows for selection of 'ogg, flac, or wav'. Interestingly enough, it is currently set to ogg, yet audio CDs are still ripped as FLAC. In anycase, I'd still prefer to use MP3 which isn't even listed there.

Cheers,

Currently it's hardcoded to flac. MP3 was left out because of patent issues we wanted to avoid. But things changed recently as it seems that the devil isn't as black as we thought. At least while for the free distribution of the product.

So....

How do we rip to mp3? ;)

Is it something that we can change easily?

Cheers,

Darren.

In theory, it would be just replacing "flac" in ripDiskWrapper.sh with a variable and put "lame", "flac", "oggenc" in it. In practice, it may be a little harder since that script is a little bit uglyer than it should be.

Hi,

I see that ripDiskWrapper now supports flac,ogg,wav and mp3. Where abouts do we specify which to use?

Also, if ripping in mp3 format, does save the track info in the mp3 tag?

Cheers,

Darren.
