Rip and encode CDs with one command
DescriptionJack has been developed with one main goal: making OGGs (or MP3s) without having to worry. There is nearly no way that an incomplete rip goes unnoticed, e.g. jack compares WAV and OGG file sizes when continuing from a previous run. Jack also checks your HD space before doing anything (even keeps some MB free). Jack is different from other such tools in a number of ways:
- it supports different rippers and encoders
- it is very configurable
- it doesn't need X
- it can "rip" virtual CD images like the ones created by cdrdao
- when using cdparanoia, cdparanoia's status information is displayed
and archived for all tracks, so you can see if something went wrong
- it uses sophisticated disk space management, i.e. it schedules its
ripping/encoding processes depending on available space.
- freedb query, file renaming and id3/ogg-tagging
- it can resume work after it has been interrupted. If all tracks have
been ripped, it doesn't even need the CD anymore, even if you want
to do a freedb query.
- it can do a freedb query based on OGGs alone, like if you don't
remember from which CD those OGGs came from.
- freedb submissions
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
