Hey everybody, I’ve updated my CD ripper example with LAME MP3 encoding, OGG Vorbis encoding, and of course WAV writing. So, if you’re interested [url=http://members.aol.com/libertyed1986/cddaextracter.zip:252u06mk]click here[/url:252u06mk]

I won’t be able to use it because the SDK is v9.0 only, which is not supported on my OS, the installer wont even install it for me without giving me an error dialog, apparently it supports only Win 98 SE and greater, and the machine I’m using has the original Windows 98. Oh well.
[quote="Paranoid_Android":1jgki2cd]I used a program called EncSpot Analyzer, which analyzes the LAME tags and header. It said that the CRC checksum was corrupted for all of the tracks that I ripped.[/quote:1jgki2cd]
Ok, I tried EncSpot and the only strange thing I found out was that the file
has no Xing header … shouldn’t there be this header if VBR is used?
Welcome to the SDK Update Site

Ok, I have WAV, MP3, and OGG support, and I thought I would add lossless audio encoding, so Monkeys Audio is now supported. All are on-the-fly. But my question is whether or not this format could even be played back with FMOD. I know FLAC is a format that will be in FMOD 4, but in the meantime is there any way to play them back with the current FMOD version?
hello … i’ve added freeDB support to you ripper, so that you get the
real artists and titles … next step will be to also write ID tags to the
final file. There is one question: does the lame dll support all mp3
features like vbr, joint/forced stereo, mpegII, mpegII.5 and so on?
and if yes, is there a docu or something like that? same for the ogg
dll. i’m really interested in extending this sweet tool!
[quote="Paranoid_Android":1zohf7x7]Ok, I’ve updated the example, now it’s possible to play CD tracks, not while you’re ripping them though. Purity, if you send me the FreeDB Code you used I’ll put it into mine, or just send me the edited zip or something.[/quote:1zohf7x7]
you will get the code tomorrow … which email address do you prefer?
tomorrow i will also start to add lyrics tag support … which means that
it not only reads the freeDB infos but also downloads and stores the
lyrics of every song (if enabled)
the LAME DLL supports Stereo, Mono, Joint Stereo and Dual Channel. Right now I have it preset to Joint Stereo, but I’m extending it every time I work on it so I’ll probably set up an options dialog to set all of the different lame settings. I’m not sure if it supports MPEG2, I know that there is a property that you can set the MPEG version, but I haven’t played with it to see if that actually encodes it to MPEG 2. It does support VBR but in my example I haven’t shown how to do it. If you want some ducumentation on LAME try [url=http://www.mp3dev.org/mp3/:2j5lvbab]here[/url:2j5lvbab].
ok, thanks, it works now!! But I can’t figure out how to encode to vbr. I enable VBR and I set up the vbr method and quality but then after I encode I analyze the MP3 and it says that its CBR. Do you know thr correct way to encode in VBR?
oh i see … thanks for the info (sorry for beeing a little fmod-off-topic)
after a deeper look into the modEncoder.bas i finally understand what
you mean (seems like a was bit stupid at first) so it looks like we have
all lame and ogg posibilities like in cdex for example. have you plans
for any other encoders to include (except audio monkey) for example
wma? by the way if you wanna spread any of you updates i’m still
interested in learning from your code.
