Rip CD to FLAC, then convert FLAC to Ogg Vorbis

Posted 12-29-2006 at 11:03 AM by Caysho

Assuming you want a FLAC copy, of course.
Use any good ripper app to extract to FLAC.
I'm currently using Sound Juicer, but under OpenSuSE I was using another one from the Gnome suite (called something like XCDRipper, which was more configurable than Sound Juicer).
Then, I found a script to convert to MP3, which I modified.
It doesn't like spaces in the filenames.

That thread also talks about cd2ogg, which has been very handy.

Alternative CLI version that does it to one file:
cdparanoia -q -d /dev/hdd 1- - | flac - -o file.flac
