Playing ogg vorbis files in ipod


I ripped an audio cd in linux and obtained .ogg files using "Sound juicer CD ripper" software. Now I am trying to import these songs into my ipod shuffle using gtkpod, but it is refusing to recongnise the ogg vorbis files.

How can i import and play these .ogg files from my ipod shuffle?

I may be wrong but I don't believe an iPod will play .ogg files. To get a player for .ogg files you need an iRiver, maybe some other vendors too but most players don't support the ogg format.

It's hard to find a player that supports multiple formats, and supports them well. I had a Trekstor i.Beat organix, and while it's file compatibility for mp3/ogg/wmv seemed flawless, it had other issues (background noise, firmware crashing / hangs, etc.), so I had to send it back. Too bad, because otherwise that player was perfect for my needs :-(

Question Convert ogg vorbis to mp3

Then, which is the best way(application) for converting these ogg vorbis files into mp3?
I am using a Fedora Core 2 system.
The mp3 files can then be put into the ipod using applications like gtkpod.
Thanks in advance.

Converting from one compressed media format to another is generally not a good idea. Since both .ogg and .mp3 are lossy formats, you'ld be losing information (and degrading sound quality) in the process. It's far better to go back to the beginning and rip the CD again directly into .mp3.

This is the main reason I'm steering clear of the iPod. When I finally get around to buying a HD player, it's going to be one that plays .ogg, such as the iRiver or iAudio players.

(Edit: Made some minor changes)

Ah, that makes sense.

But I cannot rip cd tracks into mp3 using Sound Juicer ( 0.5.10.1 ) - it doesnot have a mp3encoder. Which mp3encoder should i install to get Sound Juicer to rip in mp3 file format?

Thanks in advance.

mp32ogg

But why dont install Linux on your ipod? Use podzilla and even play videos on it.

Hi,
the foremost and easiest way to convert any audio file to diff format using Linux, is to open konqueror storage devices and then the audio cd. Once open you will see a number of sound format to use. Open the format wanted and drag to an open folder. Easy, real easy.
