General :: Bash Scripting - Sed - Lame - Character To Lame To Escape Spaces

Mar 20, 2010

Ok, so I find myself ripping audio CDs frequently, which I then lame to mp3's to put on my media player. I usually define the --ta and --tl (artist and album) ID3 tags and batch encode each album, but don't bother with the track tags as I'd have to do each one seperately.

So, I'm working on a script to do all this for me, extracting info from 'pwd' etc. to fill in the blanks for --ta, --tl and --tt (track name). All is working well, except that I can't get sed to pass on the "" character to lame to escape spaces.

Here's what I've got so far: (trouble spot is bolded - no need to pay attention to the rest of it)


All this does is pass a 'space' on to lame, which it takes as an invalid argument.

Programming :: BASH Script: Spaces Are Getting Converted To TAB Character?

Dec 23, 2010

I have a BASH shell script with embedded SQL script. The SQL script fetches the data from oracle server and the data contains more than 8 spaces in the value (eg, 28051630 A) and the data is written to flat file using the below syntax:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlplus -s ${CONNECT_STRING} >${out_file} <<!!
.. sql query..

The problem is that whenever the data is written to ${out_file} spaces are getting converted to TAB character

eg, 10 spaces (in Oracle) converted to 1 TAB and 2 spaces 7 spaces (in Oracle) converted to 1 TAB and 1 space Also, from above example you can see the width of TAB char is not constant (8 in first example and 6 in second example) Is there any way that I can stop shell script to convert spaces into TAB character as I want the data as it is from Oracle DB (i.e. only spaces not TABs)

Debian Multimedia :: How To Rip MP3's - Where To Get Lame

Apr 2, 2011

My new Wheezy install is looking pretty good and I'd like to copy some of my CDs to my harddrive. I'd like them in mp3 format, but unlike other distros, i don't seem to be able to find Lame, which is needed. I've searched for answers, but not come up with anything that works, yet. I know this question is probably asked a lot, but can anyone help me with this one? I have contrib and non-free enabled in my /etc/apt/sources.list.

Ubuntu :: Reduce MP3 Bitrate Using Lame?

Jun 17, 2011

I am wanting to reduce around 9.9gigs of music to 8gigs to fit on my phone. I have done some snooping and noticed a program called Lame. I also noticed a code:

for x in [ `ls -1 *.mp3` ]; do lame --preset 32 $x new32-${x}; done

I was wondering if someone would be able to explain the code and how I go about converting the bitrate to 96?

Software :: Why Doesn't Lame Work In K3B

Jun 19, 2010

how to use lame to convert wav files to mp3. When using K3B sometime later, I noticed that mp3 was now listed as an option for the formats I could rip CD tracks in. I'm pretty sure it was never in the list before, and it says not just "mp3" but "mp3 (lame)" so it is obvious that my installing lame made mp3 an option in this list.The thing is, it doesn't work. I've tried burning in mp3 now, and every time, some error prevents it. The debugging output says:


K3b Version: 1.0.5

KDE Version: 3.5.10


and the error message, showing the command that failed, is shown in this screenshot I attached. (It wouldn't let me copy the text to the clipboard.)Any idea why it doesn't work? If I could rip tracks as MP3 in K3B, I could rip them all at once, and it would be much faster than using the lame command on each file in a terminal window.

Slackware :: MPlayer Doesn't See/use LAME

Jun 11, 2011

First I've compiled and installed lame and xvid with --prefix=/usr.

Then I've compiled and install mplayer with --prefix=/usr.

Checking for libmp3lame ... yes (in FFmpeg: yes)

Checking for Xvid ... yes

mencoder -ovc help shows xvid (it works) but no mp3lame at all. And mplayer uses ffmpeg [ffmp3float], which extremely distors tracks. I'm sure it's not alsa, because music played online sounds normal.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Lame Options With Ffmpeg?

Aug 8, 2010

When using libmp3lame with ffmpeg is there a way to use lame options?

ffmpeg -i foo -acodec libmp3lame foo.mp3
For example:- --vbr-new, --abr <bitrate>, -V (n) and -q <arg>

I think it is possible to pipe ffmpeg to lame then use the options.But is it possible to do it without a pipe.

ffmpeg -i foo -f wav - | lame --vbr-new -V 4 - foo.mp3

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Compile LAME With LIBSNDFILE On Lucid?

Oct 17, 2010

I am a happy Ubuntu user, I run it on all of my servers.

A few days ago I setup a new slice, and now I want to use it to convert ULAW (μ-law) WAV files into MP3's.

If I would only install LAME this would give me an 'Unsupported data format: 0x0007'. Because LAME doesn't support ulaw encoded wav's only Linear PCM's.

I have read that one can use the Libsndfile and use it with LAME --fileio=libsndfile (or something like that) when 'MAKE'-ing Lame. In this case because of the additional encoding library sndfile Lame can read and encode the ulaw into mp3.

I have also read another solution is to first convert the ulaw-wav into a pcm-wav with sox, and afterwards convert the output into an mp3 with lame. This seems to be a lot of extra system resources.

I am looking for a hands on tutorial howto wget, compile, install and run LAME with Libsndfile on Ubuntu Lucid (commandline only) so I can encode incoming ulaw files into mp3's?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Telnet Localhost 25 Hanging After Escape Character Is '^]'?

Dec 5, 2010

I have recently upgraded to a VPS for the purpose of web hosting a group of sites related to my business.The reason for the upgrade was because we wish to run a shopping cart software which required greater memory for PHP and the VPS was the most economic solution. So, I have very basic linux knowledge but I am the definition of a newbie when it comes to going further than just scratching the surface of server configuration! I have successfully hosted our main site for a number of weeks but recently the postfix service stopped sending mail. I have Plesk Control Panel installed and postfix continually shows as not started even though in SSH the service status is definitely running - I have gone through the troubleshooting checklist here ( but can't get any further than section 2.1 as when running the host command (#host, I get # -bash: host:command not found. I've gone further in the document but not found any issues...

When postfix was working properly (i.e. sending emails!), the plesk CP showed the service as started and all emails from the website were sending as normal. The mailq command is showing the messages stuck in the mailq and the maillog shows the following:- - these are the latest few pages.To check the configuration and basic elements I have flushed the mailq (which shows a stack of messages waiting) and I have also spent a long time (2 weeks) reading up on the parameters that should be in and have found that when I 'telnet localhost 25' I get the following response...[root@s15397216]# telnet localhost 25Trying to localhost.Escape character is '^]'.

General :: Bash Command To Remove Spaces

Sep 14, 2010

I am reading the output of /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ATF0/temperature in a program to read my CPU temp. I am using cat like the following:

#cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ATF0/temperature
temperature: 49 C

I basically want to get rid of the spaces in between temperature and the actual temperature. Is there a command I can pipe the cat output to, to remove the spaces. I have seen suggestions for sed, or tr, but for some reason I cannot get them to work properly.
