    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    Andrew,

    Thanks I figured it out after watching the reading and encoding process carefully.

    It just wouldn't be Tuesday if I didn't have yet another question. I am using the following formats in my .abcde.conf file.

    Code:
    OUTPUTFORMAT='${OUTPUT}/${ARTISTFILE}/${ALBUMFILE}/${TRACKNUM}.${TRACKFILE}'
    VAOUTPUTFORMAT='${OUTPUT}/Various/${ALBUMFILE}/${TRACKNUM}.${ARTISTFILE}-${TRACKFILE}'
    PLAYLISTFORMAT='${OUTPUT}/${ARTISTFILE}/${ALBUMFILE}/${ALBUMFILE}.m3u'
    VAPLAYLISTFORMAT='${OUTPUT}/Various/${ALBUMFILE}/${ALBUMFILE}.m3u'
    The OUTPUTFORMAT and VAOUTPUTFORMAT seem to be honored by abcde, but it seems like the PLAYLISTFORMAT and VAPLAYLISTFORMAT are sticking to the defaults in the bash script. Since, I'm new to understanding abcde and it function, could there be a bug in the script? For example after ripping the CD "Comfort Eagle" by the artist CAKE, I get the following in my music folder.

    Code:
    bob@Basement:~$ ls -R /home/xbmc/Music/mp3/CAKE*
    /home/xbmc/Music/mp3/CAKE:
    Comfort Eagle
    
    /home/xbmc/Music/mp3/CAKE/Comfort Eagle:
    01.Opera Singer.mp3                   07.Comfort Eagle.mp3
    02.Meanwhile, Rick James....mp3       08.Long Line Of Cars.mp3
    03.Shadow Stabbing.mp3                09.Love You Madly.mp3
    04.Short Skirt_Long Jacket.mp3        10.Pretty Pink Ribbon.mp3
    05.Commissioning A Symphony In C.mp3  11.World Of Two.mp3
    06.Arco Arena (Instrumental).mp3
    
    /home/xbmc/Music/mp3/CAKE-Comfort Eagle:
    Comfort Eagle.m3u
    Do the constructed playlists really matter? Could I move them into the proper folders myself?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    A quick correction to post 23 in this thread, for those wondering how to get vorbisgain to work with abcde:

    VorbisGain puts a replay gain tag in the ogg file, so you want to use the replaygain action instead of the normalize action in you abcde.conf.

    The following are the minimum settings in abcde.conf which will enable album gain using vorbisgain.

    Code:
    OGGENCODERSYNTAX=oggenc
    OGGENC=oggenc
    VORBISGAIN=vorbisgain
    VORBISGAINOPTS='-a'
    ACTIONS=cddb,playlist,read,encode,replaygain,tag,move,clean
    BATCHNORM=y
    OUTPUTTYPE=ogg
    note, the actions array must contain replaygain after encode.

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    Many thanks for this great guide on abcde!
    It helped me to save many hours to search for the right settings. With this guide I learned how to encode in flac and mp3 and to save automatically into different folders. This is very close to perfect!

    There is just one thing that I would need to make it perfect.
    Is there a way to automatically download cover art?
    What tool do you use to add the cover art to the ripped cds?

    Thumbs down Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    I cannot get abcde to save to a specified directory

    I have tried
    OUTPUTDIR = ~/Music/
    or
    OUTPUTDIR = "$HOME/Music/"
    and variations with and without trailing/, subdirectory targets and still get something along the lines of :

    /home/drknot/.abcde.conf: line 232: /home/drknot/Music/: is a directory


    Frustrated!!
    Once I can get this to work I'll try having separate directories for ogg v MP3

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    I now feel officially daft!

    Thank you - the leading space after the OUTPUTDIR= was the problem.

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    This long thread will not be open for much longer so I will necropost a little to let the abcde faithful know that there have been 2 nice changes in abcde just recently:

    1. Musepack SV8 is now supported, support for SV7 has been discarded.
    2. Encoding with neroAacEnc is now possible without patching, Tagging with AtomicParsley for the moment.


    Details here:

    http://code.google.com/p/abcde/source/list

    Still exciting times now and in the future for abcde
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    And now encoding with opusenc is in place so abcde can rip cds to the new Opus Interactive Audio Codec.

    Re: [HOWTO] abcde

    I read earlier in the thread about selecting cd drive to read from. i am trying to read from and external usb drive.

    I can see the disc but cannot get abcde to read it instead of my main drive. using -d. I assume i have the wrong path to the drive but being new cannot figure out how to find the path. i bookmarked the drive and got cdda://sr1/ but cannot figure out how to format the path to get abcde to read it i just get the error cannot find cd drive.

    any suggestions?
