Okay, I have a few more questions:
1. How do I use the cdparanoia plugin and gst-launch to read an
arbitrary track from an audio CD? The gst-launch man page says, "Using
gst-inspect-0.7(1), it is possible to discover settings for cdparanoia
that will tell it to rip individual tracks." And gst-inspect cdparanoia
Supports seeking/conversion/query formats:
(3): time (Time)
(2): bytes (Bytes)
(1): default (Default format for the media type)
(6): track (CD track)
(7): sector (CD sector)
But I can't figure out if this has any relevance for gst-launch. I have
yet to look closely at the real gstreamer API, I'm trying to get a good
feel for things using gst-launch first.
2. Why does vorbisenc seem picky about its input
but lame does not? For example, vorbisenc seems to require
but lame seems to require only "audio-x-raw-int."
3. Where can I find a simple explanation of the output of gst-inspect
<element>? I have figured out what much of the information means but
some of it has me confused.
Thanks once again.
