When I rip a CD to mp3 using Sound Juicer I get just broken mp3 files. I like to rip VBR files, they look fine, but the reported bitrate is always 32kbit/s. See:
mp3check -a 01.\ Anita.mp3 01. Anita.mp3: anomaly: bitrate 32 kbit/s anomaly: no crc
I expect that the reported were the average bit rate value. When I put these files in a mp3 player, the reported track duration time is always wrong. The player expects a hour long music file when it has just a couple of minutes.
It used to work fine, but it silently broke in an update some time ago. Unfortunately I can not find how to correctly configure it. My Ubuntu is version 14.04.1.
I’ve tried these approaches:
- Run gconf-editor, go to apps → sound-juicer, and put the value described here in the pipeline attribute. I’ve deleted this attribute now.
- I’ve tried to run the application gnome-audio-profiles-properties as described in this question.
- Tried to configure .psr files:
- Multiple other frustrated options that I don’t remember
Can someone please help me to escape from the Gnome mp3 configuration from Hell?
There is a bug open for easy configuration.
