mpg123


Im having trouble burning mp3's with gnome toaster because it says the filter cannot be found but i know that i have mpg123 installed because xmms uses it. i think when i installed xmms it might have messed up where mp123 was located. can anyone help me?

use lame instead. i know that mdk has the package so it should work with red hat.
http://rpm.pbone.net/
they have one for red hat on the second page. bookmark that site, it's nice to have.

once you get it installed, then do the config in gnome-toaster, it should reisde in /bin/, don't quote me on that one though. it's been a while since i've burned or converted any.

cheers.

It's not true that xmms uses mpg123. mpg123 is an application that may use the same libs as xmms, but they are different apps. Try mpg123 from a command line and see what you get. Remember that RH9 does not come with mp3 support out of the box, licensing reasons. You need to install it from third party distributions yourself. If you did that, it's likely that the mpg123 program wasn't part of the package.

Hope it helps,
mlp

personally i don't think that mpg123 is for converting .wav to mp3. it's for playing them.

go with lame.

Jeez - that's what the L A M E TLA stands for, "Lame Ain't a Mp3 Encoder", in the same tongue-in-cheek spirit as GNU is "Gnu's Not Unix". There was also some, again tongue-in-cheek, legal component to that name because the Fraunhofer folks have the patent on MP3 encoders.

Despite that acronym, it is THE mp3 encoder, trust me. Read some of the history at
http://www.mp3-converter.com/encoders/lame_encoder.htm

Finally my advice is, after you get the LAME going, use your experience and install (it's most likely already there) ogg-vorbis. If you get third-party MP3's, well, that's what they are, but since you encode yourself anyway, you have the choice to use ogg to encode. The improvement in sound quality will blow you away. And it's (as far as the encoding technology is concerned), totally free as in free beer and free speech.

put it to hd and then drop it on your cd. i don't know why you would want to convert and burn at the same time, unless your doing multiple burns and you have an mp3 player in your vehicle.
