Here's something I posted to d-u a while back:
A couple of weeks ago, I found myself having to drive from the south of
the UK to the north. Having just moved house, my CD collection was
still in moving boxes.
Luckily, I'd ogg'd them all up as I bought them so I could easily burn
the half-dozen or so albums that I wanted for the trip.
Getting bored of doing each album by hand, I wrote the following script
that might just be useful to someone in the same position. Small, but I
find it does the job. It burns all the ogg files it finds in the
working directory to the default CDR drive. Don't try it on a huge
directory of tagged ogg's, as it'll just think you know what you're
doing and happily burn >700MB to the CD.
o /etc/default/cdrecord must be set up correctly. If not, add the
appropriate options to the script. You might need to add them in two
o Output is screwy, as it's not filtered/parsed/anything.
o From when you type "ogg2cd" to realising that you're in the wrong
directory, you have 2 seconds to ^C out. Press it multiple times.
for FILE in *.ogg
ogg123 -d au -f - "$FILE" | cdrecord gracetime=2 -audio -pad -nofix -
cdrecord gracetime=2 -fix
