m3u2toc is a Perl script which creates a CD-Text enabled cdrdao TOC file from a XMMS MP3 playlist.
Theres lots of scripts out there to help you burn MP3's as CD audio, but none I've seen that make a point of writing matching CD-Text data. This script takes the pain out of manually preparing a TOC file with CD-Text author and title data by extracting that info from MP3 ID3 tags.
This script also differs from others by not being an end to end solution for MP3 to CD audio burning. It will take a M3U playlist and produce a TOC file and thats it. Decoding MP3s and running cdrdao to burn them is your job. (Although I'll implement decoding if theres demand for it).
I like small programs that tackle individual problems and solve them well, rather than monolithic ones that try to do everything and fail badly.
Four simple steps to burn:
- complile and save a playlist in XMMS (ensuring ID3 tags are filled).
- set output plugin in XMMS to "disk writer" and decode MP3s.
- run m3u2toc on playlist file to make a TOC file complete with author and title CD-Text data.
- then just run cdrdao using the TOC file and let the CD burn.
