I find that Media Jukebox is the best
ripping/encoding/organizing program around. It will
rip and populate vorbis comments without a hitch. I
find it's organizing to be top notch, and this is the
reason I use it. There are two major problems with it
right now though.
1. It uses an encoder from last November!! And it's
decoder is from May. They both work great, but this
format has been changing so much (for the better)
lately that I would like to see it use the better
encoder at least. On the plus side you can specify an
external encoder and use oggenc.exe but it takes
longer and I am not sure about how it handles
2. It uses CDDB. They used to support FreeDB until
the gracenote flunkies came down on them and stopped
connectivity for a weekend and they were practically
forced into a very restrictive contract. (At least
this is the feeling I get from the responses of the
