Subject:   burning audio CD's from mp3's
Message-ID:  <>

I have a few mp3 files I'd like to burn an audio cd from. I use mpg321
for playing mp3's, and burncd to burn cd's, so my first thought was:
let's pipe them together. I read the man pages, and tried this:

root@freepuppy ~ 1004:0 # mpg321 -w- ~/tmp/*.mp3 | burncd -ends 16 audio - fixate
High Performance MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 Audio Player for Layer 1, 2, and 3.
Version 0.59q (2002/03/23). Written and copyrights by Joe Drew.
Uses code from various people. See 'README' for more!

Directory: /home/roman/tmp/
Playing MPEG stream from 01.mp3 ...
MPEG 1.0 layer III, 256 kbit/s, 44100 Hz stereo
writing from stdin

only wrote 0 of 16464 bytes err=0
root@freepuppy ~ 1005:0 #

The cd appears to contain one audio track, but doesn't play. Do I have
to save the wav's to disk before burning them with burncd?

I've googled for mpg321 AND burncd, and my question wasn't answered in
either of the two pages returned (one of the hits contained a script to
burn audio cd's from mp3 files, and that saves the wav files to disk
before burning them to disk).

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see
