14.0 > Audio > abcde (2.5.4)

abcde is a frontend command-line utility (actually, a shell script)
that grabs tracks off a CD encodes them to Ogg/Vorbis, MP3, FLAC,
OGG/Speex, MPP/MP+(Musepack) and/or M4A/AAC format, and tags them
all in one go.

There are many optional features that abcde supports by building
with one or more of these optional dependencies:

* faac : for creating m4a/aac files
* id3lib : for manipulating ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags
* id3v2 : for writing id3v2 tags
* lame : for creating mp3 files
* mppenc : for creating MPP/MP+(Musepack) files
* speex : for creating Speex files
* vorbisgain : for adjusting the volume of ogg vorbis files

PLEASE NOTE: the included abcde-musicbrainz-tool script requires the
following Perl modules (which are not available through


Try running abcde as root (sudo or whatever) if abcde/cd-discid thinks

This requires: cd-discid
