mp3 encoder

Postby Pacman » Fri Oct 07, 2005 9:42 am

Basic ripping question here, guys:

When I use Windows Media Player to rip cuts off a CD, I usually don't have any trouble. However, I was sick of ripping them into WMA files, so I changed the tool setting to MP3. But now, when I try to rip a track I get this:

Windows Media Player cannot rip the track because a compatible MP3 encoder is not installed on your computer. Install a compatible MP3 encoder or choose a different format to rip to (such as Windows Media Audio).


My question -- where do I get such a compatible MP3 encoder?


Thanks as always. ;-D

Let me ask this way -- is it impossible for me to rip to mp3 through Windows Media Player?

Yes download the newest version of MEdia PLayer...I think its 10. Also, download a codecs pack that may make a difference. Just do WMP's newest version and that should work fine.

First I'd recommend reinstalling 10. It should work works fine for me.

if that doesn't work go to http://www.free-codecs.com although I think its mostly for DVD, .AVI, DIVX stuff. But still a good site to have in your quiver.

Then something's screwed. I just re-installed WMP-10 and I still get that message when I try to rip from CD to mp3.

Ugh.
