Manual Reference Pages - RIPPERX (1)
ripperX graphical (GTK) frontend for ripping and OGG/FLAC/MP3 encoding CD tracks
This manual page documents briefly the
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
ripperX is an X-based program that uses
cdparanoia to convert (i.e. "rip") CD audio tracks to
WAV files, and then calls the Vorbis/Ogg encoder
oggenc to convert the WAV to an OGG file.
It can also call flac to perform loss-less compression
on the WAV file, resulting in a FLAC file.
Alternately, if you have an MP3 encoder installed such as toolame lame or bladeenc, it can then
convert the WAV into a MP3 file.
Besides a nice GUI interface, ripperX also
supports CDDB queries to retrieve song and album information, progress
meters, and pausing while ripping.
This program takes no command line arguments. After starting the
application, select the Config button and cycle through
the tabs to learn what options are configurable.
Because Vorbis/Ogg typically uses variable bit rates, there is not a direct
correlation between the bitrate selected for encoding and the rate used by
oggenc. The bitrates selected in the MP3 tab of the Configuration
dialog are passed to oggenc with the -b switch.
Enabling or disabling VBR when using Vorbis/Ogg has no effect on the encoding process.
The FLAC encoding currently does not accept any bitrate arguments,
so any bitrate you specify in the config dialog will be ignored for this type of encoding.
