Unhappy help configuring grip to output mp3 files


hi all
I am trying to get grip to output mp3 files instead of the default .ogg.
I have installed mp3encode ok, and am now trying to set everything up in the grip>configure tab. i think the first two lines are right but the last is not

Encoder Exacutable /user//bin/mp3encode
Encoder Commandline -p 2 -I 3 -b %b %w %m

Encoder File Format ~/mp3/%A/%d/%t_%n.ogg

what do i need to change the file format to I know someone has done this one.
Thanks in advance E

this is how i have grip set up. under the config tab choose

rip then use these settings-

ripping exe /usr//bin/cdparanoia
rip command line -d %c %t:[.%s]-%t:[.%e] %w
rip file format ~/mp3/%A/%d/%n.wav

encode then use these settings-

encoder executable /user//bin/lame
encoder command-line -h -b %b %w %m
encode file format ~/mp3/%A/%d/%t_%n.mp3

options M3U file format ~mp3/%A-%d.m3u

mp3s should show up in the file /$USER/mp3
hope this helps I'll be glad to post anything else U need

encoded mp3 files cant be played by any mp3 player including xmms, actually i tried every bit of the configuration..but still no success.

i also did reinstalling the packages, and downloading again the upgrade +86 rpms...nothing happen!

Thumbs up

I had similar trouble with lame encoding. The rip worked fine however the encoding produced no playable .mp3 file.

Grip Config that works on my Redhat 9 box:
Encoder command-line-> alt-preset standard %w %m
Encoder file format-> ~/cdrip/%A - (%d)/%A - (%d) - %t - %n.mp3

The Encoder command-format was the sticking point for me. The above combination works but if you take out the %m, it yields a 120 bit file that does not play, put the %m in and BAM! It plays fine.

Hope this helps,
Slappy
