|Music library||Ripping CDs|
Kodi has integrated Audio-CD (CDDA) ripping functionality. In order to use this feature, first configure the CD ripping settings (to set which encoder quality to use and where to store the files). To Rip the entire CD, highlight the Audio CD from the My Music root listing and choose Rip Audio CD from the context menu. To rip a single track, enter the Audio CD, highlight the desired track, and choose Rip Audio Track from the context menu.
Kodi will automatically download the album-information (via freedb.org CDDB) and update the ID3-tags with the proper information.

Adding audio encoders for Ubuntu
Audio encoders are now binary add-ons, but in Ubuntu they are not packaged with Kodi. All other official Kodi versions have these add-ons included with the default install. For Ubuntu, they must be installed through apt-get, similar to how PVR add-ons are installed. In the future this will be something the user can manage from within the Kodi GUI, but for now they must be installed outside of Kodi.
- Quit Kodi if it is already running and open a terminal window
- Type in
sudo apt-get updateand enter your password when prompted
- Type in
sudo apt-get install PACKAGENAMEHEREbut replace PACKAGENAMEHERE with a package name from the table below.
sudo apt-get install kodi-audioencoder-flac
The audio encoder add-on should now be installed. If Kodi was already running, restart it to load the add-on.
