It’s been a while since I ripped a CD, and since AAC/M4A is a better option, I thought I would try to get that working in linux. Unfortunately, some of the default programs in Ubuntu don’t support M4A encoding, so I had to do some searching to find a good solution. Ultimately, I ended up using XCFA to rip the CD to m4a. Then I used Picard to fingerprint the audio to get the metadata. Then I made my own m3u playlist maker so I could arrange the files into the order I wanted.
