NAMEmp3burn - burn audio CDs from MP3, Ogg Vorbis, or FLAC files
DESCRIPTIONmp3burn is a simple command line tool for making audio CDs from MP3s without filling up your disk with .wav files. It uses Perl(1), ogg123(1), mpg321(1) or mpg123(1), cdrecord(1), flac(1), and the MP3::Info(3) Perl module.
- -h, --help
- Prints out a brief help
- -m, --swap
- Manual "cdrecord -swab" option mode. Use this to disable the automatic detection for swab mode in case it is not working correctly on your system. (Also, please send email to <firstname.lastname@example.org> or file a bug against the mp3burn package if you encounter this problem.)
- -p, --playlist .m3u playlist
Use a playlist to specify audio files to burn.
Instead of (or in addition to) listing mp3/ogg/flac files,
supply a .m3u playlist (e.g., from xmms) that contains the
audio files for your CD.
Note: If you specify both a playlist and audio files, the files specified on the command-line will be appended to the list of audio files listed in the playlist. If a file referenced in a playlist cannot be read, it will be skipped. Be wary of playlist editors that use relative paths - mp3burn cannot know what path the playlist editor assumed.
- -t, --tmpdir tmpdir
- Put temporary files in tmpdir. Default is to use the current directory.
- -c, --check MMM:SS|ATIP
Time check: compute the total length of files to be burned
and warn if greater than MMM:SSminutes and seconds. If the valueATIPis supplied, the total length is checked against the length available on the CDR[W] as reported byATIP.
Note that FLAC-encoded files are assumed to be 1 second long (until there is an easy way to get the file duration). You will need to calculate burn-length on your own withFLACfiles.
- -d, --dummy
Perform a ``dummy'' run: do everything except actually burn the CD(uses cdrecord(1) "-dummy" option).
- -o, --cdrecord cdrecord_opts
Specify the command line options for cdrecord.
The quotes are required to prevent mp3burn from parsing cdrecord(1) options.
Overrides options specified in ~/.mp3burnrc.
Example: -o ``-v dev=1,0 speed=4 -swab''
The options -pad and -audio are added automatically, since they are
always necessary. The script also tries to detect if -swab is needed (for
example on x86 and other little-Endian platforms). cdrecord is supposed
to take care of any byte-ordering requirements specific to your burner.
(If you end up with a CDthat merely sounds like static, you most likely need to toggle use of -swab.) You should also consider using -v so that you can watch the burn in progress. This goes for ~/.mp3burnrc also.
- -a, --atip
Lookup the ATIPinfo for the device in the cdburner (using cdrecord(1) "-atip") and then exits. This option can only be used (successfully) in conjuction with -o.
- -M, --encoder MP3decoder
Use an MP3decoder other than the default, which is mpg321. This is imperative when burning tracks that have sample rates other than 44.1kHz, and the current version of mpg321 will not decode these files. Specify the name of the decoder to be used, e.g. mpg123-oss-3dnow; you can also specify this in your .mp3burnrc file with $mp3decoder = mp3decoder. (Note: Currently, theMP3decoder must be able to accept mpg123-style command-line arguments.)
RETURN VALUEmp3burn returns 0 on success.
- Error in .mp3burnrc:
Perl(1) cannot parse the .mp3burnrc file.
The following example occurs when a double quote is not terminated:
bash-2.05$ sudo mp3burn -d ~/bell.ogg String found where operator expected at (eval 10) line 7, at end of line (Missing operator before ?) Error in .mp3burnrc: Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at (eval 10) line 7. bash-2.05$
You will experience this error if you define both $cdrecord_opts and $mp3decoder without terminating the variable assignments with the ';' character:
$ mp3burn -d -t /tmp Theodor_Storm_Aquis_submersus_1.mp3 Scalar found where operator expected at (eval 10) line 2, near ""-v speed=2 dev=0,3,0" $mp3decoder" (Missing operator before $mp3decoder?) Error in .mp3burnrc: syntax error at (eval 10) line 2, near ""-v speed=2 dev=0,3,0" $mp3decoder"
EXAMPLESWrite an Ogg Vorbis file from a CD-R drive, /dev/scd0, mounted at /mnt/scd0/ to a CD-RW drive, /dev/scd1, called "0,1,0" in cdrecord(1)
% sudo mp3burn -c 050:00 -o "-v speed=2 dev=0,1,0" /mnt/scd0/bell.ogg
Create a ~/.mp3burnrc that prints a message before writing and uses a different
# This is an example. $cdrecord_opts="-v speed=2 dev=0,1,0"; $mp3decoder = "mpg123-oss-3dnow"; print "Nine seconds to slap a CD-R in the drive!\n" ; # # See mp3burn(3). #
Specify an mp3decoder other than mpg321.
$ sudo mp3burn -M mpg123-esd ./rush/*mp3
In this file, you may permanently specify the cdrecord options and
MP3decoder you want to use. The format is:
$cdrecord_opts = "cdrecord options"; $mp3decoder = "some mp3 decoder";
You may place comments in this file by beginning a line with "#".
- The values of $cdrecord_opts and $mp3decoder in ~/.mp3burnrc are ignored if the "-o" or "-<"command-line options are used, respectively.
CAVEATSHas not been tested extensively with Ogg Vorbis files. Ogg Vorbis files must be in CD-DA format: i.e. 44100 samples/channel x 16 bits/sample x 2 channels.
BUGSIf you execute mp3burn with root permissions, the ~/.mp3burnrc will also be executed with root permissions.

- mp3burn 0.02 10/28/00
Changes since 0.01:
Spaces, quotes, and other shell metacharacters in filenames should no longer problematic, since we use Shell:QuoteString to avoid problems with that (Feedback for that is wished).
Mono MP3s and MP3s not sampled at 44.1kHz are no longer problematic.
Editing the executable is no longer necessary; cdrecord options can be specified on the command line or in ~/.mp3burnrc.
Temp dir for FIFOs may be set to other than the current dir.
Dummy runs now supported from the command line.
A time check is now available: mp3burn can abort if total time exceeds a threshold. Requires MPEG::MP3Info.
