RIPPERX(1)		    General Commands Manual		    RIPPERX(1)

NAME
       ripperX -- graphical (GTK) frontend for ripping and OGG/FLAC/MP3	encod-
       ing CD tracks

SYNOPSIS
       ripperX

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the ripperX command.

       This manual page	was written for	the Debian GNU/Linux distribution  be-
       cause the original program does not have	a manual page.

       ripperX	is  an	X-based	 program that uses cdparanoia to convert (i.e.
       "rip") CD audio tracks to WAV files, and	then calls the Vorbis/Ogg  en-
       coder  oggenc to	convert	the WAV	to an OGG file.	 It can	also call flac
       to perform loss-less compression	on the WAV file, resulting in  a  FLAC
       file.

       Alternately,  if	 you  have  an	MP3  encoder installed such as toolame
       lame or bladeenc, it can	then convert the WAV into a MP3	file.

       Besides a nice GUI interface, ripperX also supports CDDB	queries	to re-
       trieve  song  and album information, progress meters, and pausing while
       ripping.

OPTIONS
       This program takes no command line arguments.  After starting  the  ap-
       plication, select the Config button and cycle through the tabs to learn
       what options are	configurable.

       Because Vorbis/Ogg typically uses variable bit rates, there  is	not  a
       direct  correlation  between  the bitrate selected for encoding and the
       rate used by oggenc.  The bitrates selected in the MP3 tab of the  Con-
       figuration dialog are passed to oggenc with the -b switch.  Enabling or
       disabling VBR when using	Vorbis/Ogg  has	 no  effect  on	 the  encoding
       process.

       The  FLAC  encoding currently does not accept any bitrate arguments, so
       any bitrate you specify in the config dialog will be ignored  for  this
       type of encoding.
