mp3 extracted but no one can play it

Asked by Marcelo Trindade dos Santos on 2006-06-06

I have edited the profile of sound-juicer on Dapper, to extract sound in mp3 format.

The profile I created is as follows:

profile name: MP3
profile descriptio: Extract mp3 format
Gstreamer pipeline:
audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc
file extention: mp3

I have instaled lame, gstreamer0.8-lame, gstreamer0.8-plugins-multiverse.

Sound-juicer extract the files from the CD, but the is no way to play them. I have tryed mplayer, xmms an others.

I have no idea of what is going on.
Thank you very much, in advance,

Marcelo.

I think it's the -mad package you need,

see http://wiki.ubuntu.com/RestrictedFormats

I have already installed de -mad package, but not the gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse one.

It worked fine. Thanks a lot.

Hi,

I've read this text and now i can extract music to mp3 format, but one thing.

Is mp3 in linux restricted to 128kbps?? I'm sure is not... I would prefere to make my mp3 in 192 format... Is it possible? if you could tell me how...

Thanks
Eduardo

Hi,
If you are using sound juicer, you can set the bitrate at the GStreamer
Pipeline (Editing Profile). I'v set (you can use it as an example) this to

audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc bitrate=192

and it worked fine.

You can also use the program ripperX, which has a menu for choosing the
prefered bitrate (..., 128, 192, 256, etc...) and also allows you to
extract the cd with a varible bitrate.

Hi,

I found how to do it and is also possible to make vbr in sound juicer..
I'm using this format

audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc vbr=4 vbr-quality=2 ! xingmux ! id3v2mux

and it works very fine

thanks a lot

Protasio,

that pipeline command only delivers a max of 159kbps bitrate, so its not great VBR, I'd like my VBR to be at least over 210kbps.

Marcelo Trindade dos Santos,

your pipeline has been the only one that got me bitrates for MP3 above 128k, yours works perfectly except I'd recommend putting "id3v2mux" at the end so it writes track names etc. into the MP3 file.
