Riping Audio CD's

I want to rip my audio CD's in Konquer, its easy, but I don't want to rip it to .ogg I want to rip it to mp3! I also tried to use KAudio Creator but ther was an encoder problem!

Who can help me out there?

i do this often, its pretty easy once youve got it figured out :)

Firstly: you will need an application. get "grip", its easy to use, stable and you get a good output.

Secondly: You will need a ripper. This converts CD audio to wav file. They are pretty standard and are generally included in a standard installation. Common examples are cdparanoia and cdda2wav.

Thirdly: You will need an encoder. This compresses the audio wav file into a different file extension (compression), such as ogg or mp3. For mp3 encoding, get either bladeenc or lame.

bladeenc -
lame -

Now open grip and configure the ripping and encoding options, such as output name (check the help for %'s, such as artist, name and track no.) You also need to set options such as encoding bit rate and quality.

Good luck[/b]

Have you tried the audiocd:/ URL?

For me there's a subdirectory called MP3.
When I drag the files to another konqi window
they are ripped and automatically encoded as mp3.

have you tried "ripit" ( It is a small perl script, which you can as a command line tool. You can rip mp3 and ogg with it and it uses the cddb databases. Pretty fine!
