View Full Version : 48Khz WAV ripping in WMP11?
I just got my shiny new S9 and proceeded to fill it with music, when i noticed that WMP11 has ripped all my CD's in 44.1Khz WAV [thumbdwn]
After having a poke around the settings and finding no option for 48Khz, does anyone know of a plugin/windows setting to achieve this?
I would opt for another media player, but i have trouble getting the tags right on WAV's in any other application, whereas i've noticed WMP just....well works :)
Why do you want to use WAV?
Why not MP3, OGG or even FLAC...
Rip your CD's to FLAC and then convert them to a different Audio Format...
MediaMonkey works well and so does JetAudio...
Mp3tag to tag your files...
A question from me, what's the source material? is it just regular CD's?
My CD's don't typically last very long [rolleyes] and i like to keep the closest thing to verbatim copies of them on my external drive, so even when the CD looks like someone set about it with a nine inch nail, i can still enjoy my music, and re-encode it should i wish/need.
Also, i like my audio to be of the very highest quality, regardless of size :D
You can't tag WAV files, that's part of the issue, and JetAudio seems to make a total pigs ear of it (unless i'm doing something wrong).
FLAC is my fallback plan, as i know you can decode a WAV file from the FLAC with no loss in quality, but WMP doesn't play them! Also i presumed WAV is higher quality.
Yup, just plain old CD's.
OK, I was just curious...
I started with WAV files and then switched to FLAC, based on some advice I got here and at ABI.
I buy my CD's and Rip them to FLAC and lock the CD away in a storage case...
I have never been sorry...If I try and help someone I just grab some FLAC files and convert them to the audio format someone is having problems with and see if I can help.
Thanks Dalmane, looks like that's the way to go. What do you convert them with just to be nosy?
Seems a bit daft about WMP, although the same can be said for most Microsoft products i guess lol.
Now to find a FLAC plugin for it...:D
There is a plugin (http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ogg.htm) that allows you to play OGG files using windows media player...
Not sure about FLAC...
I use JetAudio and MediaMonkey to play my FLAC files and what ever other audio format I convert them to.
Yup, just plain old CD's.
Right oh, then why are you trying to rip to 48khz? CD's are only capable of producing 44.1Khz and ripping them at 48khz will only lose you quality and make the filesize bigger.
Omg your right lol [rofl]
Well that clears all that up! Thanks!
