    I think this is an excellent idea.

    still looking for a simple solution for this.

    I once tried this for test purposes, not very nice but covered all basics:

    Probably not of much use, as it is not open source i think, just quick and dirty.

    On the other hand, if an open source solution existed, you could concentrate on the integration, not the ripping ( I am no developer. Might be rubbish).

    Going purely down the open source route.
    Im looking at using code from http://www.arbingersys.com/concerns.html to do the conversion as its all proven and working. It would appear that MP already uses some of their code to do the MP3->WAV conversion for the CD Burner....so the hooks into their DLL's are already in place.
    It should (cough cough) be a fairly simple task :p
    No timelines of course....as lots of real world stuff going on at the minute.

    Hi,

    Please do! I'm in desperate need of an "archive your CD collection to your HD" plugin! ;)
    Please consider the following "features":

    - bitrate selection
    - freedb lookup
    - ID3 support for MP3
    - codec selection

    IMHO mandatory features. :)

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    Great idea,

    please think also on DVD ripping.

    No chance on that one from me. In my opinion its too specialised......Auto Gordian Knot is your best chance for that.

    I think we should use an open source program. There are quit a lot out there.
    Maybe Cdex could be used. It's Open Source, and quit good.
    http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/ (Page seems to be temporary down)

    There are some guys working at this and it would be nice, if we could get them together (maybe using this post)
    to get a working and most flexible solution for MP that fits for all needs. :)

    For just DVD-Ripping DVDDecrypter could be used.
    Shrinkto5 can rip and shrink a DVD to fit on a regular DVD and afterwards burning this. It's also Open Source.
    http://www.shrinkto5.com/

    A plugin that can rip CDs and DVDs would be great.:D
    Maybe we could get thi in two steps.
    First CD ripping and converting.
    Second DVD ripping converting.

    Regards

    I second the use of cdex if possible. I was trying to find out if it had a command line interface but like you said the site is down.

    I have used this program for a long time and IMHO its one of the best for cd ripping and encoding.
