ogg ripping....need suggestions


for the past 6 hours I've been trying to find ogg ripping software that actually worked. I'm running Fedora Core 1, and I tried ripping a music CD (Tom Petty - Wide Open Spaces) with the sound juicer program that came with FC1, yet I tried running software behind it, and it crashed. I later tried switching screens, and sound juicer crashed again. I tried ripperX (I think that's what its called) but the install didn't work, or I didn't know how to install it correctly.

I thought XMMS ripped CDs, but I think I'm wrong becuase I went through xmms and I couldn't find anything on ripping CDs.

What I would like are some suggestions of OGG rippers, or rippers of any other file format besides .wav and .mp3.

Thanks

Ben

Have you tried grip? It by default rips to wav and converts to mp3 using lame, I'm sure with a little configuring you could get it to convert to ogg instead. And it shouldn't make your system crash either.. just uses alot of resources when converting the file from wav to mp3 that I noticed that might make you mouse a little jumpy a bit..

Sounds like your ogg library is broken.

Oggenc from vorbis-tools works fine for me.
There also seems to exist RH packages from upstream.

oops forgot to mention that. I installed grip, but I don't want to use it. mainly because grip finds all of the CD song-list off the internet, and I don't have a compatible modem for linux yet.

I would like a program in which I could type in the names and artists of the songs.

what do you mean by "my ogg library is broken"?

I'm using OggCarton, http://oggcarton.sourceforge.net/ , rips to ogg, built in server. I hacked the GUI to get rid of the funky graphics; it does the job.

Oggripper is easy to use, but the latest rpm is Redhat 8.0. Might still work.

Also, grip..
DiscDB tab, uncheck 'Perform disc lookups automatically'

You haven't played around enough with grip then.

You can edit the disc info in grip and enter whatever you want!! You do have to save it a couple of times though to make sure it saves correctly.


GRIP is the bestest thing I have found for ripping ogg's.

It even blows the windows rippers out of the water.

Of course, thats just my 2 cents...

There is no requirement that grip download the CD information from the internet. It does write an output file in cddb format, which is nice in any case when a person is entering songs.

I posted a script (not a great one, but it works) which I use to burn CD's in this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=161718 thread. I myself may switch from cdparanoia to cdda2wav, since I have upgraded to cdda2wav 2.0 (which includes the cdparanoia libraries). It will also allow me stop using discid and grip in my process, since cdda2wav will both download info from freedb.org (if available), extract title information from the CD (if included) and write the cddb_id file. The principle would be the same in any case, so perhaps it will help you.

Personally, I find a command line driven script blows the heck out of any gui ripper, though again, filling in the album/artist/title information w/grip is nice.

oggcarton uses the same vorbis-tools, and the sound juicer uses the same underlying library (libvorbis and libvorbisenc) than the vorbis-tools. If most of them fail, it is probably because you have broken version of the underlying library.

I would use 'cdda2wav -t3 | oggenc -l 'An album' -t 'The third track' -a 'An artist' - > foo.ogg' or something similar.
