    To use mp3Hd in Ubuntu

    Mp3HD is a hybrid (lossy and lossless in one file) format designed by Fraunhofer


    It has no native player in Linux but can can played through Wine with the Fraunhofer player and Winamp with plugin found on their site
    It plays lossy in all players apart from the fraunhofer player and winamp with plugin where it plays lossless and is therefore unique


    1. To download also zipped and attached Make sure lame is installed on your system for the lossy part


    2. Then open it to your home folder; then need to move it to /usr/bin and make executable this way


    Code:
    sudo mv mp3hdEncoder mp3hdDecoder /usr/bin
    Code:
    cd /usr/bin
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x mp3hdEncoder mp3hdDecoder
    3.
    run:

    Code:
    mp3hdEncoder
    and accept agreement important!

    4. run
    Code:
    mp3hdEncoder
    to make sure all is fine and to see options

    a good setting is this

    Code:
    mp3hdEncoder -br 320000 -if test.wav -of test.mp3
    and for bulk
    Code:
     for f in *.wav; do mp3hdEncoder -br 320000   -if "$f" -of "${f%.wav}.mp3"; done


    Gives you a 320kbps lossy and a lossless version (usually in the 900kbps range)


    =============================================
    To decode
    Code:
     for f in *.mp3; do mp3hdDecoder -if "$f" -of "${f%.mp3}.wav"; done

    =============================================

    Then to the players


    the fraunhofer player is on the site as is the winamp plugin


    =============================================

    To rip directly to mp3hd you can use Rubyripper with this line of code for the other box



    Code:
    mp3hdEncoder  -br 320000 -if "%i" -of "%o".mp3 - -Title "%t" -Artist "%a" -Album "%b" -Track "%n" -Year "%y" -Genre "%g""]mp3hdEncoder  -br 320000 -if "%i" -of "%o".mp3 - -Title "%t" -Artist "%a" -Album "%b" -Track "%n" -Year "%y" -Genre "%g"
