RipperX - oggenc


Hi

I am using ripperX to rip some Cd's to vorbis.ogg. I don't want to use sound juicer because it uses gstreamer and not oggenc.

The only thing I can't determine or seem to set in ripperX when choosing ogg encoder is which encoder it is using. Does it use /usr/bin/oggenc by default? Can I set this somewhere to be certain?

apt says it has vorbis-tools as a dependency, both the site description and the manpage says it uses oggenc, and the configuration file lists "oggenc" as the command name, but without the full path (editing it appears to be pointless, as it overwrites it every time). That means certainly that it uses the first instance of oggenc found in the PATH, which is usually the one in /usr/bin. Unless you have multiple oggenc versions installed and want to specify a particular one, I'd say you're safe.

I personally found the program to be too simple for my tastes. There's no way to edit the per-track metadata. I prefer using audex myself. grip isn't bad either, if you need a gtk-based program. There are other options as well; I suggest trying out different ones until you find the one that satisfies you.

I didn't know about audex I might give it a try. I found a way to have vorbis-tools and oggenc patched with aotuv http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...3&postcount=61 so will try audex and see how it goes.


Edit: Audex has too many kedlibs I am on gnome/unity. Looked at grip but it is not longer developed and removed from ubuntu repo.

As ripperX does good quality rips I might just use EasyTag to solve any tag issues that occur.
