12.11. MP3 Players

Personal digital media players can be used to store and listen to music away from a computer. These are often referred to as MP3 players a potentially misleading name; not all of these players use MP3 files to store music.
Many mp3 players can be mounted as storage mediums, and music can be added to them just like a file can be added to any other disk. See Chapter 6, Media for more information.
Some players, however, require special applications to transfer music.

12.11.1. Grip

Grip is a CD player and a ripper for the Gnome desktop. It provides an automated frontend for MP3, and other audio format, encoders, letting you transform the disc straight into MP3s. Internet disc lookups are supported for retrieving track information. Details are available on the Grip website at
Grip is not installed by default but it is in the repository for installation with either using the PackageKit application or on the command line by using Yum . Refer to Chapter 17, Managing software for more information.
