cd and dvd ?

Postby erichuff » 2019-08-24 15:40

I have a 4 cd audiobook. I want to make a DVD that combines all 4 cds into one DVD.
I have pulled the audio out and combined them into one mp3.
the mp3 is 250megs.

I need to make some kind of blank m2v file to mplex the audio to.
How do I know how long to make the blank video?
what can I do to make the video low bitrate?
This is just to get around the constant switching out of the CDs in the car. The DVD player still plays the audio while I am driving just not the video.

Rip the audio tracks using cdparanoia, then make a data DVD using those tracks. There is such a thing as an audio DVD, but I've never made one.

AFAIK Exact Audio Copy is still the best software for ripping audio. It works perfectly in Wine.

Why in hell would you want to use Windows software with a Debian machine to rip audio?

Quoted from Exact Audio copy website:
It is free (for non-commercial purposes)
It works with a technology, which reads audio CDs almost perfectly. If there are any errors that can’t be corrected, it will tell you on which time position the (possible) distortion occurred, so you could easily control it with e.g. the media player

Quoted from cdparanoia website:
Cdparanoia extracts audio from compact discs directly as data, with no analog step between, and writes the data to a file or pipe in WAV, AIFC, AIFC or raw 16 bit linear PCM.

Cdparanoia is a bit different than most other CDDA extration tools. It contains few-to-no 'extra' features, concentrating only on the ripping process and knowing as much as possible about the hardware performing it. Cdparanoia will read correct, rock-solid audio data from inexpensive drives prone to misalignment, frame jitter and loss of streaming during atomic reads. Cdparanoia will also read and repair data from CDs that have been damaged in some way.

cdparanoia will read correct,.... Cdparanoia will also read and repair data from CDs that have been damaged in some way.

Exactly what I don't want.

I agree, EAC was the pinnacle.
It's a hardware question also. The test is simple, two rips from the same track should be identical. Lots of hardware does fuzzy correction, some software does, both bad. If there is an issue with the disk I'd rather the rip failed, telling me to polish the disk until I get a good reproducible rip. I haven't tried lately, but after scsi plextors and pioneers fell from favor, it seemed the commodity stuff no longer would fail, it would just fake it...probably doesn't matter much.

Not sure why one wouldn't put 250mb mp3 file onto another rewritable 700mb cd ?
