the audio cds should be detected by kde, i haven't got much time at the moment and i'm trying to finish version 1.0. maybe it will work with kde4 then, if not please tell me.
if you aren't afraid of compiling soundkonverter you could try to add your device manually.
e.g. add
s.append( "/dev/external_cd" );
to cdmanager.cpp line 62 - Jan 03 2009

/usr/lib ? are you sure that theses are executeables? soundkonverter needs the binaries of these programs, not their libraries. so you should not install libmp3lame but lame (which may depend on libmp3lame). - Oct 25 2008

when the conversion starts, a soundkonverter icon is placed in the systemtray, if you click it, the mainwindow gets visible.
the soundkonverter log files are placed in ~/.kde/share/apps/soundkonverter/log please make sure to clean up the log directory before testing it again. - Oct 16 2008

at the moment i have no time for programming (i'm writing my exams). so unfortunately i can't help you. i don't know if this is something i would like to implement at all. so i recommend you to write a small shell script (have a look at "man mp3wrap", "man lame", "man faac" etc. or ask someone in a forum). - Sep 17 2008

thanks for your report, i fixed the bug, but it will take some time, until there are enough bugs fixed, worth a new release.
are the tags just displayed wrong or written wrong, too?
could you send me such a file or a greek string so i can test it? - Jul 23 2008

hi, thanks for this great tool.
i recently came across a problem. the image counter of my mobilephone is broken and i need to add a specific offset to all numbers in the file name. eg: img103, img105 => img114, img116
would it be possible to implement that? - Jul 07 2008

what os are you using and do you have cdparanoia-devel installed?

paranoia.h:25:28: error: cdda_interface.h: No such file or directory

if you have installed the devel package, you could change the #include by hand. - Jun 20 2008

hi Ron, thanks for the report. so does mp4 decoding not work at all, or is it just apple lossless that doesn't work? and did i understand right, that ffmpeg/(mplayer) is the problem because it crashes?
there is mp4als which supports apple lossless but sk can't handle different codecs for one file format at the moment (v. 1.0 will do). so i could write a dirty hack for that. i just have to get the information which codec the file has. - May 14 2008

thank you.
downloading album art would be an option for the cd ripper.
output to multiple directories? how is that supposed to work?
ripping to more than one format seems to be very very special so i don't think i'll implement that.
i don't use bsd and i don't know how the situation will be for kde 4 but the source should be independend from the os so soundkonverter should run on all plattforms supporting kde. - May 02 2008

Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

hm ... you're right...
then the only way to do that is to edit the plugin file. copy the file KDEDIR/share/apps/soundkonverter/plugins/320.cdparanoia.soundkonverter.xml to ~/.kde/share/apps/soundkonverter/plugins/320.cdparanoia.soundkonverter.xml , open it and add the parameters to 'param'. but there is no quick way.

damn - i deleted the folder before the release. i'll update the source soon. until that you can either search all files for 'patch' and remove the lines.
or try running 'WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" gmake -f Makefile.cvs' before ./configure

btw. i have updated the ubuntu package. the link above points to the current version now. - Apr 09 2008

the value for the '-q' parameter is calculated based on the quality range of the encoder (oggenc: -1 to 10).
have a look at the tooltip of the quality input field for more infos.

oggenc does not support upmixing. so you can only downmix to mono. just don't check the channel checkbox in order to leave the channels untouched. - Apr 07 2008

55 is -q 5,05
i know this is not perfect, i'll probably change that in the next version. if you want exact -q 5 you can use the 'advanced options' and replace %p by your parameters (and then save as profile). - Apr 07 2008

hi,
the gpg key is set automaticly by the opensuse build service. i haven't looked at it yet. is smart unable to import it? yast does that.
if you want to import it, try rpm --import http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/HessiJames/openSUSE_10.3/repodata/repomd.xml.key that's what the .repo file contains. - Apr 06 2008

ok, i have updated to beta source package now. so you can download it (the last link) and configuring with "--with-mp4v2" should work when you have installed the libmp4v2-devel package. - Apr 05 2008

Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

the tags are read and written by taglib (if possible). in this case the genre tag can't be read.
i managed it to compile soundkonverter with libmp4v2 now. so if configured with "--with-mp4v2", it will work.
it >should< work without mp4v2 too. but somehow it doesn't.

and album arts can't be neither read nor written at the moment - sorry. - Apr 04 2008

the flac man page (eg. konqueror: man:flac) shows some 'format options' like --sample-rate=#. but it confuses me a little bit since flac is lossless. so i thought to be better off ignoring these features.
if you know, what you are doing, you can add these options to the flac plugin.
and did you finish your aiff plugin? if you want, you can send it to me so i can include it in the next release. - Mar 07 2008

hi, maybe i could add an option to use tags/directories/nothing for grouping albums. but i'm not sure if that's necessary. if you want all tracks played at the same volume, you should use the track gain (that's what it is for). - Feb 29 2008

hi, i implemented an option to skip existing files and the ability to execute a script after every converted file. at the moment i have not much time, if you are skilled at writing bash scripts, feel free to write a copy cover script. the script is launched with the source and destination file as parameters.

hi, thank you for this great apps.

unfortunately i have some problems with my averatec laptop. i'm running suse 10.3 and sometimes when i turn on the pc after suspending to disc, the pc starts up, i can see the login screen, sometimes i can even log in and then the pc turns off.
this seems to be attended with some notifications (popups in kicker) saying that the cable has plugged in, etc. this seems to happen especially when suspending the laptop with the battery removed and then starting it in battery mode. - Nov 13 2007

so the conversion gives no error. if you want try to decode the ogg file with soundkonverter to wav. and hear the result. then encode it via the command line with lame. at first without parameters then with the parameters in the log file.
at the moment i have to assume that the problem lies in lame or the audio players. (maybe a combination of that and the chosen parameters.)
so try to convert the file with other output options. - Nov 10 2007
