Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

Everytime i try to burn an audio CD from mp3 files brasero gives me an error saying "Not suitable for audio or video media." I have all of the gstreamer plugins installed so thats not the problem. Ive seen a few posts on forums for other distros about the same problem but no real fixes. Most people just suggest using something else. I want to use brasero. I like the way it integrates with banshee. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Edit: Solved via Post #10 in this thread

Re: Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

Not particularly helpful - but a reasonable assessment never the less...

Brasero has been broken for a very long time and is increasingly unlikely to ever be fixed...

The "workaround" is to install K3b (and it's slew of chunky kde libs) for a full cd/dvd suite or xfburn for a more lightweight solution (lightweight in both features and lib). There are other burning suites but they tend to have their own "issues".

Re: Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

Are you missing deps to allow for decoding of that format?


CPU-optimized Linux-ck packages @ Repo-ck  • AUR packagesZsh and other configs

Do you have fluendo installed?

I ran into this myself when I was using Ubuntu (I know .. I know .. but I'm Arch now!) and found that removing Fluendo and reinstalling gstreamer sorts it out.

Hope that helps.

Same problem here. (No Fluendo, sorry.)

It used to work. Now every time I try adding an mp3 to an audio project I get that "is not suitable for audio or video media" error. I'm not sure what changed to cause this. (It's not like I burn audio CDs often.)

Re: Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

I can confirm this also. No fluendo, but both 1.0 and 0.10 gstreamer versions installed... I suspect that this might be the problem.

edit: actually it is, the function 'mp3parse' used in brasero was dropped in gstreamer 1.0 - see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=687886 and http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/g … 38101.html. A simple patch was proposed, could we use it right away?

I had this same issue and switched to xfburn, worked perfectly and didn't take in Qt as a dependency.

Fixed with brasero 3.6.1-2 and gstreamer 1.0.6-1.

Re: Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

Everytime i try to burn an audio CD from mp3

You'll have to turn .mp3 into .wav to make an audio CD. Or did you mean a data CD with .mp3 files on it? Google how to make an audio CD.

lame --decode file.mp3 output.wav

Are there any other burning programs that can do this?

You bet. Here are the basics. Add whatever options you wish.
Make .iso of files to burn to CD

mkisofs -R -J /path/to/files -o /path/to/output.iso

Disk with multiple folders on it.

genisoimage -J -r -pad -graft-points dir1/=/path/files dir2/=/path/files dir3/=/path/files > filename.iso

Burn .iso to disk

growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=/path/name.iso
wodim speed=8 -tao dev=/dev/sr0 /path/file.iso

Burn DVD from files example

growisofs -use-the-force-luke=tty -Z /dev/sr0 -J -r -speed=8 -dvd-compat -pad -graft-points /path/file.avi /path/file.avi

Write Audio CD from a folder of .wav files

cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 speed=8 -audio -pad *.wav

Re: Brasero Cannot burn cd using mp3 files [SOLVED]

For command-line cd burning, it's best to use [audio decoder], cdrdao and mktoc.

Using mp3's and lame, you can use an one-liner:

for song in *.mp3; do lame --decode "$song"; done

then use mktoc to create a toc file with this one liner:

mktoc -w *.wav > album.toc

then insert your cd and use cdrdao:

cdrdao write album.toc

Then if you wish 'clean up the mess':

rm -f *.wav album.toc

So, 1 year later and the same problem still has the same solution? This is an empty post and a necro bump. Please read through our forum etiquette (link in my sig) and refrain from such posts in the future.
