CD Ripping?
« on: January 03, 2020, 08:29:18 PM »
I can't seem to find the CD ripping settings at all. Is it just not here? Ripping CDs was one of my favorite aspects of using Winamp.It worked fine for the year or so I was using 5.8.

The plug-in that handled it was replaced under WACUP but is only capable of doing CD playback at the moment.

Ripping will get re-implemented (since it's just playback with file conversion) however burning support is something I'm not sure about trying to re-implement.

For burning I have wondered about doing enough to create the file(s) needed to then be passed onto a dedicated burning program.

1) Really, do we (ever, again) need this?.. Especially in a player, such as WinAMP. Development resources can *surely* be -better- implemented on other things.

2) For sure, because #1 and /or simply DUMP all of that code; certainly we'd be better off, right? .o0

:))

EDIT: There are TONS of (other) software that can rip'n'burn, just sayin'

There are still those requesting ripping support (it's just playback sent to a file encoder instead of the speakers when you actually look at what's going on) & a lot of what's needed for that is there but just needs to be hooked up to get things working.

Burning support is better managed else where but there's nothing to say that things couldn't be done for those needing it to at least help prepare what could then be burnt. And WACUP doesn't include any of the Sonic Burning Engine or other aspects since those parts were replaced with WACUP versions & is why there's the features missing since they're not been re-coded.

Should I however do it, like I note above, ripping is something that makes sense, burning less so but who knows what will take my fancy to work on :)
