cdenc lets you encode whole audio CDs in a special directory which can be burned on CDROM afterwards.
For other mp3 players like WinAmp the mp3 info tags are set correctly, so that you also get there the full title infos. Additionally you could generate long filenames, so that you could play the music via a shell or explorer environment. Last not least, cdenc generates html files to let you browse through with a normal html browser (but then you can't play more titles on one time).
Furthermore cdenc generates by using Gimp and mpeg2encode bitmaps for the osd of Yamakawa/Raite DVD/MP3 player. cdenc doesn't have a graphical user interfaces. As a clean commandline script, it is designed also to run on machines without X11 (number cruncher) and can work backgrounded. Once correct configured, the work with cdenc reduce to the insertion of an audio CD and the subsequent call of "cdenc -medname mp3cd001", which makes cdenc test if the CD ist not already on another media and if not starts the complete grabbing, compression and index generation.
Unfortunaly cda(xmcd) and gimp have changed a lot so that cdenc won't run with the actual versions. I will change the code to use libaudiocd, but that will take some time. Sorry for that.
What's New in This Release:
· replaced routine "double" through sprintf (thx to Travis Whitton)
· made cdenc ready to work with Gimp 1.1.18
