Audio track names
 
Hi,

I'm new to linux, and am trying to rip audio tracks off a cd, but use the track name (from cddb) as the file name.

I've tried it with cdda2wav, and can successfully get the details from cdda2wav, and save the file. But i cant get it to save the file with the track name...

I've read the man pages for it, and had a search round the net, but cant seem to find anything... i cant beleive this isnt poss.

I know i can use grip etc... but i want to do this from the linux terminal.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Roland

It seems there are no command line tools (only graphical ones) at the moment which can rip audio tracks _and_ use a cddb databse for naming the ripped files ("http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/MP3-HOWTO").

However, I did find a shell script which can do that : "http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/%7Embayer/tools/dekagen.html#en"

If you've got some time to spare you may study how this shell script does the ripping and cddb process.

Its in cdda2wav. You need look for CDDB_SERVER and CDDB_PORT in the man pages.

Hmm, I did not manage to do this with cdda2wav.

However, after some more Google, I did find a tool which does work very very well :

http://web.tiscali.it/no-redirect-ti...ou/dagrab.html

If you compile and install this program, you can rip a track (or the whole CD) from an audioCD as follows :

"dagrab -C -N 2"

(-C means do CDDB lookups)
(-N2 means rip only track 2)

Apparently (I've never done it) grip can be used from the command line. That too may be something worth looking at (if it's even truly possible).

Cool
