cdda2ogg, cdda2mp3 — extract audio CD audio tracks and encode them
cdda2ogg is a simple script that uses the icedax
<fileprefix> command to extract all audio tracks with the icedax
<fileprefix> command and encode them using the ogg123
respective <censored> MP3 encoder. The scripts are not intended
to be full-featured music archiving programs, but only for quick storing of
few audio data. It does not use databases like CDDB or have any extra
features. You may look at icedax if you need them.
ogg123 is provided by the vorbis-tools which needs
to be installed separately. See www.ogg.org for more information.
cdda2ogg and cdda2mp3 have predefined values for reading and
labeling of the target files. You can overwrite them with following
- Source device specification to get the data from.
- List of track numbers to be read, separated by spaces.
- Defines the command to run the cdda2wav program
- Miscellaneous options passed to $CDDA2WAV.
- The encoder program.
- Additional options passed to $MP_CODER.
- The base part of the filename of resulting audio files. This can also be
specified as the first argument to the script.
See cdda2ogg (cdda2mp3) script file to get the default values
System administrator can also set default values by creating of a
shell include file, defining the variables for the POSIX shell, and storing
them as /etc/default/cdda2ogg (resp. cdda2mp3).
