How to use different encoders to encode music


I have FC-5 and use KDE.

I use Sound Juicer, Grip and Kaudio Creator to rip and encode music files. The default format is ".ogg" and that's all I've ever encoded. But they all let you select the encoder you want to use. And that would be great if it worked. For example, in Kaudio Creator I select "lame" so I can create some mp3 files. It looks like it"s ripping and it creates mp3 files but they are all 0 byte files. Am I doing something wrong? It creates those files in my home directory. In Grip I don't know where it's saving the files. Does anybody know how to rip and encode in something other than ".ogg"?

It appears that you can only encode with these apps from a CD. I would like to be able to encode existing files to a different format. Can I do that and if so with what app.

Thanks,

royeo

Apparently, you don't have lame codecs installed. With Fedora, I'm not sure what the repo would bebut you need to find a repository to get those codecs. (Maybe livna)

I don't know if the codecs are installed but "lame" is. It's in /usr/bin. How would I determine if the codecs are installed? Does having "lame" installed indicate that the codecs are installed? Is "lame" the codecs? (As you can tell from my questions, I don't know anything about this stuff.)

Thank you,

I wouldn't recommend using gnome applications such as grip and soundjuicer on KDE, although this is just my opinion.

Why don't you try installing soundKonverter and gstreamer... It's KDE/qt based and should work perfectly without having to install gnome libraries which soundjuicer and grip may require.

Have a look at to check out soundKonverter's cool features!:

You can just do a yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly or yum search gstreamer to see all gstreamer's packages.

On Debian, I install three separate packages: lame, lame-extras, and liblame0. I think the codecs are in liblame0. Can you play mp3 using xmms, or some other player? If you can, you have the codecs.

Grip should work fine with KDE. I'm not familiar with any KDE apps, but sometimes you have to go to the apps preferences screen and help it locate the lame libraries it needs.

Refer this link but instead of "id3v2mux" use "id3mux" in FC5.

Thanks,
