  • Auogg
    Auogg is a simple Ogg/Vorbis player for the Network Audio System. It's based on libaudio, libvorbis, and libogg, and relies on the Argp facility of the GNU C Library. As a result, it's really tiny (about 13 KiB C source and about 11 KiB compiled binary).
  • Autogg
    Autogg started as a music player that also sorted your music and presented it in a nice list based on albums, like a jukebox. Originally it only played files of the ogg vorbis format. Now it is sorting both mp3 and ogg files, but the playback is done by xmms, or you can use drag and drop with other players.
  • Boss Ogg
    Boss Ogg is a music server. It's a little different, though. It's server based. Basically, it means that the music plays on the machine the server is running on. Any number of different types of clients can connect to this server (either locally, or remotely) and control the server to do it's bidding. It works very well in an entertainment center, or in an area where more than one person is listening at once.
  • cdevour
    cdevour is a set of scripts designed to make CD ripping painless. Aside from swapping discs, it aims for as little user interaction as possible. Drives are continually polled for discs. Upon finding a disc in a drive, it determines what CD it is, makes sure it has enough disk space, and rips. Names are retrieved from CDDB and the disc is ejected when finished. CDs that have already been ripped are ejected immediately, and when there is not enough disk space, the script waits until there is. A separate encoding script encodes files into Ogg Vorbis in the background. Encoded files are tagged and renamed. Another script can move albums into a music directory automatically.
  • crip
    crip is a terminal-based ripper/encoder/tagger tool for creating Ogg Vorbis/FLAC/MP3 files under UNIX/Linux. It is well-suited for anyone (especially the perfectionist) who seeks to make a lot of files from CDs and have them all properly labeled and professional-quality with a minimum of hassle and yet still have flexibility and full control over everything.
  • cutoggvorbis
    cutoggvorbis is a small and fast command line Ogg/Vorbis editor. It lets you select sections of an Ogg/Vorbis interactively or via a timetable and save them to separate files without quality loss. It uses ogg123 for playback and even works with files bigger than 2GB.

Just execute the script, answer to a few little questions (album title, author, song title) and a few minutes later (depending on the speed of your cdrom drive and your cpu power) you'll find the Ogg files under the AUTHOR/ALBUM/ directory (created by the script, if needed).
