So, you store all your CD’s as FLAC, and encode FLAC to MP3 on the fly. Now, you’ve gone and lost that CD, or in my case, your 3 year old daughter loses it for you. How do you regenerate a CD from your FLAC’s? mp3cd does just that. I was all set to code something up myself, but mp3cd is currently maintained, and even available in the Ubuntu repositories! It has a man page, and it even works – why reinvent the wheel? Note that if you do use Ubuntu, and you’re getting this error:
sox soxio: Failed reading `01.wav': unknown file type `auto'
Then you just need to install some packages:
sudo apt-get install libsox-fmt-all
