You can use inotify which is a folder monitoring software: it launch a command when a file is created . Here, it will launch mp3gain .

Metadata is sent over AVRCP profile, not over A2DP. If your phone does AVRCP 1.0 then it will not send any metadata info. If it does AVRCP 1.3 or above then you should see metadata. Google play music player does not support sending track number and controlling repeat and random.

lame is perfectly suited to this task, but I'm going to use ffmpeg and ffprobe for this answer, because I know them like the back of my hand and because they can be generalised to more than just MP3s. First of all: sudo apt-get install ffmpeg There is no tool that I am aware of that can read media files and then over-write the input straight away: you ...

I found a workaround for those who use Rhythmbox, and I'm crossposting this from it's issue tracker: Since I use Picard for properly tagging albums BEFORE I import them into Rhythmbox (and also, before they're copyed into ~/music), I managed to find a workaround for this. Picard has a plugin (included out-of-the-box) called "Feat. artists in titles". The ...

Lame is one of the best you can find to do this task You can use the command lame -b 192 input.mp3 output.mp3 im not good with piping commands but you can use exiftool to get the bit rate of the mp3 file exiftool -AudioBitrate File.mp3 but you still need a way to pipe the commands of finding mp3 file, checking the bitrate and converting...

I have tried installing it several times without any success. I think the extension is badly outdated and no longer works. I would love to be proven wrong on this point, but it has never worked for me.

Problem is apparently related to the libavcodec/ffmpeg fork: https://github.com/cmus/cmus/issues/139 I fixed cmus by installing libswresample-dev and the rest of the ffmpeg dev libs from this PPA (replacing the libavcodec libs): https://launchpad.net/~jon-severinsson/+archive/ubuntu/ffmpeg Then ./configure CONFIG_FFMPEG=y to make sure that ffmpeg.c works ...

You could mount the NAS instead of using Samba (which I assume you do): Install cifs: sudo apt-get install cifs-utils. Create a directory to mount the NAS, e.g. sudo mkdir /mnt/mynasdrive Mount the drive to the location: sudo mount //hostname/drive -o username=<username>,password=<password>,rw,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0644,dir_mode=0755 ...

The least worst CD Ripper for Linux is the venerable k3b Why it is the best: You can easily configure a variable bitrate and it will obey what you configured (I'm looking at you SoundJuicer and RhythmBox) it queries MusicBrainz and FreeDB and CDTEXT you have the most sophisticated level of path and filename configurationn you can set a high paranoia level ...

I recall playing files/archives with embedded cuesheet information in Amarok 2.x a few years ago, but I gave up on this esoteric approach to archiving as well as archaic and naive attempt to tagging recordings that isn't very popular outside of certain piracy forums. (Realize that there do not only exist bands and individual artists or projects for eternity ...

I think it is related to the size of the mp3 files. Nautilus didn't display the album art for any file larger than 10Mb on my system. If you go to nautilus->edit->preferences->preview and change the selection for "Other Previewable Files" "Only for files smaller than:" and change the value to 100 MB that will probably work!
