Re: How to rip CDs with VLC

Anders Holmberg
 

Hi!
Yes you have to move around with the jaws Cursor or nvda review mode.
You can actually do very much with that dialog box.
You can for example do recordings from an internet stream or rip a dvd or a cd.
You can convert files from one format to another too.
I have not used that feature as vlc is very unstable on my mac right now.
I use another player called IIna specially made for the mac.

Subject: [all-audio] How to rip CDs with VLC

I'm hoping someone can give me step-by-step instructions for how to rip a CD
with VLC media player. I've tried intuition and Google, but I'm getting
nowhere. I know to start with control-r and to select disc with alt-d. I
know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can't get
any results.

One time I accidentally recorded two tracks with VLC, but even though they
were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there's no
sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

Although I somehow got two.WAV files using VLC, a feat I've never repeated,
the only file type options I find as I go through the rip dialog are ones I
don't recognize.

I'll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close
that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

I'm not looking for another ripping program. WMP is okay, but the sound
quality of .WMA files is less than I want. Since VLC plays CDs with such
clarity, I'm hoping that using it for ripping will bring better results.

Thanks for any instructions or tips.














Re: convertion of itunes files

Smiling?
 

Just copy one of your M4P files and rename it with a M4A extension and see
what happens. It should play just fine and if it doesn't, simply delete it
hence the copying.

Re: The beta 58

frank cuta
 

Sorry, I need to correct what I said. If you have Perkins EQ on your board
such as exists on Soundcraft and Mackie Onix systems the associated
frequency setting is at 10 o'clock. This corresponds to a about 220 Hz not
415 hz.

No it's a well recognized kind of muddiness that seems to be associated with
the characteristic of the beta when used in the female's higher range.
For instance when I do Robbin and Linda Williams they specifically request
the beta 58 . but other women with higher voices ask me to dig out the
older version of the 58. And you can really hear the difference in a live
show just try it.

Hi,
I received my Zoom F8N today and yes I'll probably need a bit of help
to
get the machine going but after that I don't think I'll have too many
problems.
Firstly level adjustments it seems are controlled by analogue dials,
one
dial for each track.
These dials have pointers so you know what position they're adjusted
too, halfway is completely vertical.
The track selection keys are marked by a series of small dots each.
Turning the recorder on and off is different from all Zoom recorders
I've had in the past and is achieved by means of a small button in the
bottom right on the control panel which is rather cramped and contains
quite
a few buttons, dials and knobs so if you have big fingers this may take a
little getting used to.
The sight of the F8N was somewhat of shock and is unlike all other Zoom
recorders I've seen.
The F8N is in a complete metal housing and reminds me of a small car
radio in shape similar to the one's I used to mount in car dashboards when
I
was working at Hillman Spares all those years ago.
The design is straight forward, the front panel being taken up by the
display on the left and the control panel on the right.
On each side are the various XLR/TRS inputs, outputs, USB socket and SD
card slots.
On. The back are 2 BMC sockets and the Zoom Capsule connector along
with
a DC input for the supplied power adapter and battery door screw.
The Battery door opens on the bottom of the recorder for the insertion
of 8 AA batteries for portable use.
The F8N sits proudly on a desk or a table curtesy of the 4 square
rubber
feet in each corner.
So that's as far as I've managed to get at this stage and I'll write
more as I progress.

Re: Accessible Blu-Ray Software for Windows PC?

VLC will work. Let me explain. I guess not all keys were made accessible to it, but if you have Any DVD HD running in the background VLC is in my books right next to Media Player and Media Center in disk playback accessibility. I just haven't gotten arround to buying Any DVD. But I've been meaning to. I too ran into your problem when Power DVD 15 came along. It was no longer even usable.

with VLC media player. I've tried intuition and Google, but I'm getting
nowhere. I know to start with control-r and to select disc with alt-d. I
know that VLC recognizes the CD I have in that drive. However, I can't get
any results.

One time I accidentally recorded two tracks with VLC, but even though they
were somehow saved as .WAV files and VLC is my default .WAV app, there's no
sound. By contrast, when I just play the CD with VLC, the sound is fine.

Although I somehow got two.WAV files using VLC, a feat I've never repeated,
the only file type options I find as I go through the rip dialog are ones I
don't recognize.

I'll mention that I have Windows Media player set to rip CDs, but I close
that program when I want VLC to do the job. Could it be interfering anyway?

I'm not looking for another ripping program. WMP is okay, but the sound
quality of .WMA files is less than I want. Since VLC plays CDs with such
clarity, I'm hoping that using it for ripping will bring better results.

Thanks for any instructions or tips.

Yep...good ole CDEX is hard to beat1! I used to like WMP, but when that
program went to 11, it seemed to be not as "straight-forward" at least
that's how I found it to be!

It looks like ripping CDs in VLC is a bit complicated. It seems difficult to
select all the tracks and give them their own filenames. I suppose that it
would be quicker and easier to use another programme like some listed in the
thread. I still use CD-ex and it works well.

Yes, and that's the route I took. Thanks for responding, Dean.

As a side issue, you can set windows Media Player to rip to other formats,
you're not limited to WMA.
