Need an Ogg Vorbis encoder

I'm looking to rip my CD collection to Ogg Vorbis files, but I can't find a program to easily encode music from CD.
Can anyone recommend one?

Arrow Grip

Definitely, try Grip. I'm a relative newbie, and this app is hard to get lost in. It's also rather good at reading crummy and scratched cd's.

If you want a Gui, use Grip; otherwise just use the basic Oggenc ( For more details, see

If you're using KDE, theres a nice K app called KAudioCreator. Allows for ripping of Cd's and encoding in just about any format. mp3, ogg, flac, wav. Plus it does the CD database lookup for you too, so you don't have to type all the info in.

Grip works great too, I just like to use KAudioCreator since it integrates nicely with KDE.

Thanks for the help guys, I've decided to go with KAudioCreator as I'm using KDE.
