mruszczyk / whipper

Description

CD ripper preferring accuracy over speed - forked from morituri

Installation Instructions

Installation should be relatively simple.

Enable the copr repository.

# dnf copr enable mruszczyk/whipper

Install whipper

# dnf install whipper

Usage

Whipper currently only has a command-line interface called whipper which is self-documenting: whipper -h gives you the basic instructions.

Whipper implements a tree of commands: for example, the top-level whipper command has a number of sub-commands.

Positioning of arguments is important:

$ whipper cd -d (device) rip

is correct, while

$ whipper cd rip -d (device)

is not, because the -d argument applies to the cd command.

~~Check the man page (whipper(1)) for more information.~~ (currently not available as whipper's documentation is planned to be reworked (Issue #73).

Getting started

The simplest way to get started making accurate rips is:

  1. Pick a relatively popular CD that has a good chance of being in the AccurateRip database
  2. Analyze the drive's caching behavior

$ whipper drive analyze

  1. Find the drive's offset.

Consult the AccurateRip's CD Drive Offset database for your drive. Drive information can be retrieved with whipper drive list.

$ whipper offset find -o OFFSET

If you omit the -o argument, whipper will try a long, popularity-sorted list of drive offsets.

If you can not confirm your drive offset value but wish to set a default regardless, set read_offset = insert-numeric-value-here in whipper.conf.

Offsets confirmed with whipper offset find are automatically written to the configuration file.

  1. Rip the disc by running

$ whipper cd rip

Additional documentation is available in the github readme.
