LOL, the same site that complains about every copyprotected CD, is now saying how easy it is to convert CD tracks to MP3s, and how CDs play in all kinds of players… Next week, it’ll be about the newest CD released that can’t be easily ripped, and doesn’t work is various players…

It is starting to become a dilema alright on being able to convert to MP3 :stuck_out_tongue: This may also explain the surge in music video sales. Not only do these cost about the same or a little more than music CDs, but most DVD rippers can extact the audio tracks. If the audio is MP2 format, then the majority of MP3 players can accept this without conversion. With dolby tracks, it is just a matter of using an AC3->MP3 tool. :wink: Finally music DVDs has music videos where a lot of modern music does not make sense unless one sees the video to it.

Well if it’s ok to spam their commercial program here, I’d like to point out THE BEST ripper & converter as it supports every audio format (MP3,OGG,AAC,FLAC,SHN) and it’s free. It’s so good it replaced a ripper than I paid for in the past. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/
