Re: Ripping sound from videos with mplayer

Most likely, though some do support other formats.  Some have even
supported ogg without advertising the fact, so I've read.  But you've
got two ways to find out:  Try it, or tell us exactly what model it is,
and see if someone knows it.

What's the "project box"?  You might want to try another encoder.  In
the past, and it is quite the past when I last had anything to with
making my own MP3s, I found some encoders and decoders weren't
compatible with each other.  e.g. Some of my DVD/MP3 players only handle
some encoding rates, and didn't like joint-stereo mode.  And there's
differing quality between some encoders.

Dunno about that, but definitely into the rambling zone.

/me resists the urge to warp some song lyrics into something about
rambling...
