Command Line CD Audio


Ok, here's my pickle. I've got mpg123 working just dandy on MP3's. I tried using cdplay, and it works great......except sound comes out my front headphone jack on my CD player, not out through my speakers. :S Since sound is working fine, I'm not sure what information to post up to get help making this work right. I've read that sound only comes out the line-out, but I'm not about to start switching from my snazzy surround sound to mono just to get CD audio from the command line.

I've also considered that it might be caused by not having that audio cable connected to the sound card, but I've got my DVD drive plugged into it and my DVD drive and I'm often using both drives at once. I'd hate to have to limit myself to one drive or the other for audio and my sound card only has one slot to plug in audio.

As I understand it, without the cable connecting the CD-ROM to the sound card, you will need to use digital audio extraction to get any sound from your sound card rather than just the port on the front of the drive.

But I don't know off hand which console based players support that, or how you would configure it.

kk. You're confirming what most of my reading is saying too. :-( I might just build myself a mixer out of some resistors and copper wire to run both. I'll see if digital audio extraction can be easily set up first though.

Thanks.

To anyone else who's wondering, here's the solution:

Use mplayer with cdparanoia to use digital audio extraction. Works like a charm.
