As K3b is the standard ripper I suppose it must be possible rip an audio cd to flac? In the plugin menu I see that the flac decoder is installed but not the encoder. Did someone already succeeded in installing the flac encoder plugin?
FYI: With virtual folders I am able to copy from the flac directory. It works to encode with flac like this but I experience the last seconds of the song are gone...
I am using 11.2, KDE 4.3.5 with Grip and Flac to rip and encode CDs. Two questions:- Have read flac -help and do not understand the -o option which is used in a few example threads. The man page suggests that -o should be used with subsequent parameters such as --output_name=FILENAME for example. In the example posts this general option is used on its own. What for?
The installation when first used, already had a string of options including --best on the command line. I cannot find any documentation for this. I assume it is a preset in the same way as for example --preset extreme in lame.
I have some downloaded files of radio programme from BBC which are .aac. I have never come across this type before. Googled it so now I am a bit wiser and VLC seems to play them without problem but they are not accepted by my upnp client devices which are happier with flac or mp3. I would prefer flac but what is the preferred conversion software.
I have tried everything within my power and knowledge to get xmms2 to play my flac files, but I just get no sound. I've had to resort to mplayer for now for flac. For the record, yes I have the flac plugin installed along with the all-plugins package.
I have a whole bunch of wma files I want to convert to a more liked format like wv flac or shn. Shntool does not seem to want to do that soundconverter and soundkonverter both refuse too. My wma format is wma1 or wmal cannot tell if it is 1 the number or l the letter L. 1. They play in xine straight off. Xine is in your synaptic 2. To convert quickly install dBpoweramp under wine again quick and no fuss.
I have all my CDs in FLAC format for playback in my home but like most folks I have a portable.Now, converting my collection to Mp3 fits on my player but its a pain to manually convert each new album. It would be cool to script something that could be run on cron or manually to keep them synced.
I want to rip all my CDs to flac at the lowest compression (space is not an issue) via Banshee. I have tried a few tracks but the seem to be ripped at a higher compression to the ones I have done via sound juicer (set at compression 0)
How do I adjust the flac settings in Banshee to do this? The option to edit the settings is not available for flac? I guess there is a config file somewhere?
I am looking for a command line command to convert ~2500 .flac files to .ogg files. All of the .flac files are in one folder and I would like to have the .ogg files put in a folder labled OGG - I would like to retain song information etc if possible.
Background: I'm digitizing an old record. I used Sound Recorder to make FLACs of each side of the LP, and now I need to edit them down to individual tracks. I'm using the development version of Ubuntu 10.04.
Problem: Audacity ignores these FLAC files when I attempt to import or open them.
The FLAC files play if I hover the mouse over them in GNOME.
Audacity gladly imports FLAC files I ripped from CD last year (using Sound Juicer I think).
But when I try to do the same for my recorded FLAC files, nothing happens. I tried running audacity in a terminal window, and there is no additional output when I attempt the import. This comes out when I start it:
Looking at the file properties, they're basically the same except the Juicer-generated file has values filled in for title, artist, album, year. They are all FLAC Stereo 44100 Hz. I thought it might be a file-size problem, so I made a 5-second test with Sound Recorder, and that also refuses to import.
So, why do only the ripped files work with Audacity?
I need to split big FLAC file(s) to single tracks. Is there any Ubuntu app similar to Medieval CUE Splitter? Also, I need spectrum analyzer app to determine is FLAC file real lossless or is transcoded from some lossy format. Something like this.
I've downloaded a few suggested converters, but they don't seem t ohave the right combination..I have some .avi's (from my camera) and want to put them on my website (using Joomla AllVideo component) so they have to be converted to .flv or maybe .mov.
I am trying to find a way to convert MS Mpeg4 files to a format that is playable on Totem or any of the media players for Ubuntu. I have tried many converters, even trying ones in Windows (I really didn't want to but thought I would give it a shot)
I have installed all the limited FFMPEG and x2.64 restricted and limited libraries. I have all the multiverse and universe repositories. I have tried WINFF, Avidemux, DeVeDe but to no avail and now I am tearing my hair out. Totem cannot find any plugins suitable.
