Is it still Exact Audio Copy and LAME encoder?
Thank you in advance. :)
You'd need to qualify "best". EAC's main claim to fame (IIRR) is that it
has many goes at reading a damaged track; otherwise, being basically
digital signals, they all do the same so it's just a matter of what
convenience features have been added.
As for converting to MP3 after you've ripped, I _think_ LAME is the
_only_ freeware one, and all other (free anyway) ones are based on it
(though admit that fact to varying degrees). I could be wrong though.
I'm worried about download_audiograbber_mp3_plugin.exe and
Where can I get a clean lame ?
Thanks in advance
What exactly are you looking for ?
There might be some plugins here, for LAME.
You never really know who owns a website. Whether it's the original
author, or a cybersquatter.
Mine required an upload, and had a "fresh" SHA256, which means
the file is being dynamically packaged on the server side. That's
not generally a good sign for "free" software, any day of the week.
Kaspersky not-a-virus:HEUR:Downloader.Win32.Generic <--- eek!
The package said it is "ad supported", and I believe them...
That link has existed on the page, since June 18, 2015. Meaning the link
is relatively recent. Perhaps the original owner of the site sold it,
and a scumbag runs it ? With the web, there is no way to know who
or what you're dealing with.
According to this, Audiograbber is from August 24, 2004 or so.
"Version 1.83 (as well as the convenient Lame plugin installer
on the same site) from the developer site comes bundled with
several adware like Funmoods Toolbar, Conduit Search, Zapp,
VO Package, Browser Utility, AnyProtect. You have to read the
installation screens carefully and deselect everything that
you do not want to install." <--- HEUR:Downloader...
If I go back here, there was likely a different downloader page
being used, prior to 2015. And maybe the website was squatted
or something ?
And if I randomly select 2005, it gets more interesting.
1,665,325 bytes (clean, for whatever you get)
Where the beauty of archive.org stops, is lots of actual download
links are not accessible. And after you determine where a "safe"
file may have existed, you have to switch back to Google again.
In this case, the links on that 2005 page were captured, so
the binary is actually available. That's a surprise.
You have more work ahead of you. I'm sure there's more to the
story than that (some assembly required ?).
At least that will give you some different stuff to test.
