  • MP3
  • Ogg
  • Flac
  • Wav

for a more detailed description of the ripping process see how to Rip a CD/DVD to the Core

Bit Rate

Here you can set the Bit Rate for which you want to encode.


  • Constant Bit Rate (CBR) In video coding, the bitrate of the compressed video is fixed at a certain rate. This usually results in variable perceived quality of the video.
  • Variable Bit Rate (VBR) A way of encoding video such that the data rate varies over time. This allows more complex scenes to use a higher data rate, balanced by using lower data rates in easily compressed scenes.
