Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping DVD With Arista - Conversion Failed - No Valid Dvd

Dec 29, 2010

I had some success with handrake to rip dvd's in older versions of ubuntu. i now have a clean install of 10.10 and know that handbrake is not compatible (even tried the ppa of the nighly builds without success). In looking for alternatives, i cam across arista transcoder....which seems perfect for my needs (simple), but whenever i put a dvd in the queue its gives me an error that says conversion failed....no valid dvd title found. this happens no matter what dvd i use and no matter what preset i choose.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Arista Transcoder Settings For Sony Satio?

Mar 20, 2011

I've just installed Ubunto having never had a go at anything linux before. My problem at the moment is trying to transcode downloaded AVI files to use on my Sony Satio. I'm using arista transcoder, and I can't seem to find anything that works for my phone. I've tried about 4 different sony presets (there isn't a specific one for satio) and I've tried a couple of others, but none of the outputted files are recognised by my phone once I've transferred them across.

OpenSUSE Install :: Failed Bootchart Tgz To Png Conversion

Nov 3, 2010

I get the bootchart.tgz file to be created, but I am unable to convert it to a png file. I have tried several instructions on how to make this conversion, but none of them have worked. Here is the one listed on this forum:

after login to GUI open your browser and go to: Bootchart scroll down to Renderer Web Form and upload bootchart log tarball located in /var/log/bootchart.tgz leave PNG format nex press Render chart button. I do not see the location on the website listed, to upload a file.

The other methods I have tried entail using the terminal to convert the file, but I continue to get errors on a failed conversion, or the wrong commands.Is there by chance I do not have a certain software yet installed to make this conversion on my laptop. I have installed the minimal OpenSUSE 11.3.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: CD Ripping To Mp3?

May 25, 2011

I've been doing some searching on the internet about how to rip my cd's to mp3 within ubuntu. I seem to find that LAME isn't a good way to convert the files. I saw the sticky within the forums and RubbyRipper is recommended, but the installation seemed a bit confusing to me. Everything else I found through my search was considerably old. I'm using Karmic Koala. Any suggestions? (This is also a sticking point for people I try to convince to switch over to ubuntu, btw.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping Audio From Bin/cue?

Jun 7, 2010

I've got a bin/cue duo that contains 1 data track and some audio tracks I wish to rip. However, I can't get to the audio tracks. I've tried mounting the bin/cue with AcetoneISO, but it just shows me the data part. I've tried converting the files using

bchunk foo.bin foo.cue foo

and it converts to 2 files, an iso and a cdr. The .cdr file, as far as I can see, cannot be opened by anything. And so I turn to you, dear fellow Ubuntu-ers for assistance. How can I get to the audio files in the image and rip them?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping Certain CDs With Rubyripper GUI On 10.04?

Jan 23, 2011

I've been using the rubyripper gui on 10.04 for a while now, using my samsung se-so84 external dvd writer and I really like it. The problem is, I seem to have found that a small handful of my CDs will not rip at all. it says that it is ripping the first trial of the first track and never progresses past this. I check the files and the temporary .wav file. usually, when this file is created it is of size 44 bytes and increases to a number of MB in a matter of seconds. in the case of the albums that do not work, the file remains very small, all being 32KB, with the exception of one that is 64KB and another that remained 44 bytes. I check the log files and they all read:

Starting to rip track 1, trial #1
Filesize is not correct! Trying another time
Starting to rip track 1, trial #1
However, this appears to be normal as I checked the log of an album that ripped correctly and it started with this.

So I tried using the command line mode and that didn't work either. the ouput was:
Ripping progress (0 %)
Ripping track 1
Expected filesize for track 1 is 66389948 bytes.
and then it exits. in the directory, an empty temp folder has been created and the album's folder contains a log file that ends after STATUS. I tried using a CD that works on the gui and the command line did the same thing. could this be something to do with the incorrect filesize that the log showed for all CDs?

Since 10.04, dvdrip will not finish ripping without crashing on multi episode disk. Reopened dvdrip to copy log files (below) and only part of log remains, but now transcode is available where before it was not. This dvd has 22 chaptors and it crashed at the end of 21. 22 came up on the progress bar but just stalled there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping CDs In .mp3 Format In Rythymbox?

Oct 12, 2010

I've just started to use Rythmbox, and as I was ripping CDs I noticed that the songs ripped as .ogg files by default. I use Rythmbox to sync with my iPod Classic (80 gig, if it matters), so I would prefer that the songs ripped in .mp3 or AAC. Is this possible without leaving Rythymbox? If not, what's the most user-friendly software available to rip CDs in .mp3 or AAC?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping CD's With Tracks That Blend Together?

Nov 14, 2010

I've been ripping some of our CD's to .ogg and .mp3 for listening at work with a Sansa Fuze. Have used RubyRipper but lately been using Rhythmbox. The app finds titles online, and it's all pretty easy.

Some rips are louder or quieter and that's a little annoying. But the biggest problem is with tracks that blend together and the app can't figure out how to dissect them. The Eagles "Dalton" CD is a mess. Also some Don Henley tracks, Creedence Clearwater, Stone Temple Pilots, etc.

I could use RubyRipper to rip the entire CD as one file. Or use RubyRipper to rip just the troublesome tracks as one file. Or maybe screw around with the tracks in Audacity? Was hoping that some of you have better fixes.

Feb 26, 2011

There are a bunch of threads on this website about this subject. None of which offered a final solution.One spoke of burning the '.aa' file to a CD and them ripping it to remove the DRM.I got it burned to a CD. What applications under linux do I need to rip it. I've tried just about everything I can find in the repository and nothing worksquestion:Do we know what the DRM code looks like and where it existed in the file. Is it something that can be removed with a hexeditor?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Granulepos Errors Ripping To Ogg Using Abcde?

Jun 21, 2010

I recently finished ripping my CD collection. Some of the files don't play; VLC and other players can run them, but there's no sound. Running oggz-validate shows errors like this: granulepos 0 on page with no completed packets (I didn't know about oggz-validate when I was ripping, otherwise I'd have checked as I went.) I can't see a pattern: with some CDs it's the whole CD, with others, just some tracks.

I pretty much ran with the default abcde options. I upped the quality at one point, but dropped it back again. Before I replace the bad files, does anyone have any advice on what to do or avoid? I've tried googling the error, but haven't found anything useful.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Produces Two Songs When Ripping CD?

Jun 24, 2010

When ripping a CD, Banshee produces two songs in my library for each track on the CD. Both songs point to the same file in my Music folder (so just one actual file). Also of note, one of the songs is always a few seconds shorter than the other. I can safely remove the shorter version of each song from my library without repercussions, it's just annoying and weird.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping Audio From BBC IPlayer Flash Stream?

Nov 3, 2010

I am looking at ripping the audio from a very old episode of 'In Our Time'. The episode is so old that it predates the podcast (which of course, would solve all my problems). I would like to use something like icecream or VLC to rip the audio from the 'Listen Now' link on this page. Unfortunately I am having a hard time finding the actual URL. The player itself is a Flash widget, so it is something more complicated than looking for OGG, mp3 or RAM file extensions in the page source. If there are some nifty command flags I should add when invoking icecream on the command line, I am all ears.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Set K3b To Eject Disk After Ripping?

Apr 7, 2011

I have started to use K3b for ripping my CDs to flac files in order to put them on a NAS but have a few niggles with how it works.

I used to use Grip and in many ways preferred the interface and flexibility but had to change because I didn't know how to increase the number of attempts made by cdparanoia to rip difficult tracks and Grip fell down on one particular brand new CD opera set.

After posting queries here Asunder was suggested, among others and although (I understand,) Asunder also rips using cdparanoia, it succeeded on a CD where Grip failed. It also had a reasonable interface and it was easy to adjust tagging before ripping. Unfortunately Asunder has recently failed on another CD so I decided to try K3b.

K3b allows me to adjust the number of retries and this has been sufficient to enable me to overcome the most recalcitrant CDs. Great, but in many other respects K3b is a pain to use. I cannot find how to get it to eject the CD once ripping has been completed. Even after the CD has been ejected the track tags remain in the display until a new CD is loaded and the tagging interface is limited.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Ripping Multiple CD Tracks To One?

May 5, 2011

I am trying to rip my "Queen's Greatest Hits I" CD to my hard drive as FLAC files. For the most part, it's going well. But let's say I want to rip Track 16 (We Will Rock You) and Track 17 (We Are The Champions) as one track. (Because really, who ever listens to those tracks separately???)

What is the best CD ripper software to use to accomplish this? So far I've tried Asunder & Audex, but I don't want to download every ripper before I find one that will let me do this easily.

I was able to do what I wanted in cdparanoia at the shell:

cdparanoia 16-17 Queen_We_Will_Rock_You_We_Are_The_Champions.wav

But then I lose all the convenience of automatic tagging, etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping Music From CD So MP3 Player Plays In Correct Order

May 5, 2010

I have a Creative Zen Mozaic player, which appears as a USB drive. I've got Ubuntu 10.04 installed.Ripping the MP3s with Sound Juicer is no problem, but my MP3 player doesn't recognize artist or album names, putting it under "Unknown artist" and "Unknown album". The song names appear correct, but the songs are in the wrong order. In the Sound Juicer interface, the album title and artist are correctly detected and displayed.

I assume this is an ID3 tag problem. I could get the process working perfectly with Grip earlier when using Mandriva, but now I'm on Ubuntu and Grip isn't in the repository. I tried with RipperX, which appears to do the correct thing, but seems to crash, and only sets the correct tags for the first few songs (for this particular CD).The mp3 setup in Sound Juicer is as follows: audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc mode=0 vbr-quality=6 ! id3v2mux
