The web page http://www.freedb.org/ is up, at least.
The other command I try, but that I don’t like (too much CLI) is ripit, it
uses the same server by default, and it works.
I have found another ripper in another thread: asunder and goobox (caf4926).
simple, works. Nice, not many options, though, compared to grip.
I forgot to try if I can edit the titles, I see errors in UTF encoding
(when seen in banshee) …] No, can not edit
Asunder is usable, but not good enough.
No cddb lookup. No good for that.
Starts playing without questions.
I wonder… Can banshee rip? Is it good at that?
All this because I found behind some books a Bach CD I hadn’t played in a
long time, and instead of playing it directly I wanted to rip it first…
Things you are used to, stop working when you least expect it.
And finding software for ripping (or anything) in packman is not easy. How
would I know that “asunder” is a ripper?
