SoundJuicer and MP3

I wanted to convert some CDs to MP3 - normally I'd use OGG, but you can't always rely on devices being able to play that format (i.e. DVD players). I was relieved to see it is easy in Ubuntu 8.10:

  1. enable multiverse and universe repos

  2. sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse  sound-juicer

  3. start sound-juicer and go to Edit/Preferences and switch the format to MP3

It was that easy. I seem to remember having to do a lot more with previous versions of Ubuntu.
