Grip Won't Rip + Encode


Hey all,

Hopefully someone can help me with this. I have Lame installed, and it works at the command line. Grip will Rip, but it won't Rip+Encode. I get the error "Invalid encoder executable Check your encoder config"

Please help! It's so frustrating having to run the mlame script after ripping, instead of grip doing it all.

Thanks in advance,

Dan

what encoder is in your config? is the path set right (probably should be /usr/bin/lame)?


p.s. what distro are you using, and how did you install lame? what version is it? do other encoders work in grip?

see p.s. above. also try deleting the .grip-* config files in your home directory and starting fresh. there should be a few of them: .grip, .grip-lame, .grip-ogg, and .grip-other usually. nuke (or move) those, restart/reconfigure grip, and try again.

Oh sorry, missed the PS: Ubuntu is what I'm on. I used apt to get grip, and just downloaded lame off the web. Like I said, it works at the Terminal.

I'll try the deletion of the grip config files.
