Projects / rip-utils


rip-utils is a comprehensive command line toolkit for ripping, encoding, tagging, organizing, compiling, and otherwise managing audio archives. Each utility participates in a common framework that allows commodity tools (such as file browsers, multimedia players, and streaming servers) to access your digital catalog simply and effectively. A single command `ru rip` (tuned for optimal quality using cdparanoia and LAME) drives the ripping, encoding, and tagging process from end to end. rip-utils also provides powerful support for retrieving, modifying, comparing, and submitting album information using freedb servers.

    Release Notes: A small anomoly in disc ID calculation has been corrected. Playlists for tracks on disk are properly merged with new tracks added from the same album (i.e., for interrupted rip sessions). ru-rip now compensates for id3v2's tendency to change the mode of files it is tagging.

      Release Notes: The order of operations performed by `ru submit` when comparing local album information against feedb has been corrected. In v0.1 `ru submit` replaced the local album information with the information returned from freedb. Other "brown paper bag" bugs have been fixed.
