i'm not involved in kubuntu, so i don't know when they will update it. but you can try to install the ubuntu version from the opensuse build service.
i don't know when i'll release a new version, i would guess in a few weeks.

normally soundkonverter should only rip one track per device. could you please try to rip some tracks again and send me the log files of lets say two tracks (see below).
also, which version of soundkonverter are you using and how many files are being ripped simultaneously?


creating log files:
1. Try to convert the file.
2. Then open the "Log Viewer" by clicking on "Conversion" in the menu bar and selecting "View logs...".
... The Log Viewer will now open in a new window.
3. By default the Log Viewer will show the log of the soundKonverter application, sending me this log won't hurt.
4. But the more important log is the log for the file you just tried to convert in step 1. To see that log, click on the combo box (drop down box) at the top of the Log Viewer window and select the file.
5. To save a log to a file, click on the "Save to file..." button on the bottom of the Log Viewer.

Thanks for your fast answer!

One of my log files is 5000 lines long. How do I send them to you?

I want to thank you for soundKonverter!
I used it a lot in KDE 3, and now with the new version for KDE 4 it still work grate!

I have a question, which backend is better, ffmpeg or some other?

ffmpeg supports a lot of formats but you should prefer eg. lame for mp3, oggenc for ogg vorbis, etc.

I'm using the Ubuntu distribution of sK and I can't seem to encode MPEG4 audio since the latest O.S. upgrade. In the previous version of the OS I had it working. Here's some data:
*the encoder log says "can't open /tmp/phil-tmp/(tempfilename).WAV
*I have faac/faad installed
*I can encode mp3, for example
*My source files are .wav format (ripped from CD's)

My first thought was it was some kind of permission problem, but everything seems OK.
What am I missing?

Thanks

could you please send me the full log, it should be saved to ~/.kde/share/apps/soundkonverter/log or something similar. please note that the log file gets deleted when sK is closed.

The beta 2 crashed when I was trying to convert a directory that had "#" in it. I assume that the # is what caused the crash.

do you know which decoder/encoder you used? i can't reproduce the crash, maybe it's a coincidence that it happened with a # in the file name.

Thanks for this application. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to support cue files? I have a large ape file along with a cue file. There doesn't seem to be a way to create ogg files out of it.

soundkonverter doesn't support splitting. you can convert the ape file to ogg and then use another program for splitting. please use the kde-apps search or google, there are a few programs out there.

i haven't imported/updated the old translations for soundkonverter 1.0.
the beta version is intended to show the technical progress and changes and is not ready yet, translations come at the end.

The beta works very fine here, however I experience one small bug: the "Add files"-dialogue in the lower left of the main window uses some huge font when being opened, so for example instead of "Add CD tracks" one can only read "Add C...ks...". I do not have such a fontsize configured within KDE.

Beside that: even as a beta sK remains to be the best ripper in town.

Thank you.

this widget at the bottom left of the main window - "the combobutton" - consists of a combobox and a push button that is drawn over the combobox. it's important to know which of these widgets is too small. the button or the list that pops up when you click on the arrow? (or booth?)
usually the whole widget should resize itself after changing the action.
also you could send me a screenshot to hessijames gmail com maybe you have some exotic style options.

Oops, so it's not a common bug? Strange... The fontsize in the button itself is the same, yet okay to read (though having three '...' which seem not needed), but the pop-up box appears to be too small, see → http://tinyurl.com/32r3rtt

Actually not the popup is too small, but the font used is too big. It looks like a 12 or 13-size font, while in my systemsettings I have set the size for most fonts to 10, 11 being the biggest size. I have tried using other fontsizes, but they don't seem to affect this very popup / button.

the font size in the combobutton is 3 points bigger then the "normal" font.
on your system the width of the combobox's popup is the same as the combobox while on my system the popup is wider.
but i don't know why. could you post your qt and kde versions. there seems to be some inconsistency.

Hi,

first of all, thanks for your work. Since beta1, I enjoy using SoundKonverter.

There's just one problem. I am naming by Tags, to have a unified naming scheme. I have my musik sorted according to the following scheme:
Artist/Album/Nr - Title.ogg
But when there is an album with more than one disc, I want it sorted like this:
Artist/Album/CDcdNr/Nr - Title.ogg
If there's only one disc, usually there's no disc number included in the tag information. Could this somehow be used to implement something like this? That would be really great.

Another nice addition would be kio-support to be able to convert directly from the network via smb or ftp without temporarily storing the contents on the HDD.

sounds like a good idea, i guess i'll work some more this weekend, but it sounds doable. maybe something like [%d] (apply only if %d is not null ...)

network transparency doesn't work at the moment because of a bug, but i hope that i can fix that.

Report

MalleRIM

That's what I had in mind :)
Another great thing would also be to use naming by metadata only if metadata is available. Today I encoded some files and ended up with Title.ogg, Title.new.ogg, Title.new.new.ogg etc.. I don't know how complex this is, but would it somehow be possible to use file names and parent directories as variables or warn in case of any used but missing metadata and offer alternative options?

that's more difficult and i don't know if that is really necessary, if your file aren't tagged properly, it might be better to just use the input file name as output file name and then format the file names with a real tagging program like easytag.
but what i can do is eg. use the input filename if there are not tags at all.
