    The information about gnudb.org was very helpful. Investigating further has enabled me to find the changes necessary to return the CDDB lookup functionality to my VortexBox by configuring gnudb.org as the CDDBHOST in the file /etc/ripit/config. I am running VortexBox 2.5 and made the following edits to /etc/ripit/config.

    In the CDDB Options section -

    mb=0
    CDDBHOST=gnudb.org
    mirror=gnudb
    transfer=http
    proxy=proxy.gnudb.org:3128

    I am not 100% sure if the proxy entry is necessary, but once it started working did not go back to further diagnose if the proxy is needed.
    I don't think I have any other significant customization or have made any edits to other supporting files on my VortexBox.
    Maybe a rewrite of the aforementioned perl files will not be necessary at this time.

    I am a long time user of the VortexBox software and this is a first post. I hope it is helpful.
    I am pleased my VortexBox is back in business.

    I ran into this problem at the weekend or at least realised that the reason why my last few rips had failed to identify the CDs wasn't an aberration.

    I made the changes described but found that the ripper didn't restart cleanly afterwards. Digging around, I found that gnudb.gnudb.org returns ping responses but proxy.gnudb.org doesn't. Of course, it might be there's a firewall that end that's blocking the ping but I decided to try the set up with the proxy parameter left blank. That sorted the problem and I'm back in business. Thanks!

    Has anyone besides me not had any luck following the instructions editing /etc/ripit/config in order to get CD ripping working?

    I made the following edits to /etc/ripit/config after upgrading to Vortexbox 2.5

    In the CDDB Options section -

    mb=0
    CDDBHOST=gnudb.org
    mirror=gnudb
    transfer=http
    proxy=proxy.gnudb.org:3128

    I then used the Restart Autoripper button on the VORTEXBOX CD/DVD Automatic Ripper gui with out any success.


    I cannot get past ripit checking the first track of the CD and ejecting

    Here's what happens when I run

    I use a lot of open source software to get VortexBox to work. If anybody knows of a free ripper or tagger that can use GD3 I would be very interested in knowing about it.

    Code:
    dnf reinstall rtipit
    should do it

    I didn't see a reply to this. I, too, am at this point and can find no way to go forward. There are a bunch of I don't know what they are called at the bottom of this page, they have titles like "Get Help", Prev Page, Write Out, Cut Text, etc. with a capital letter in front and an "up arrow" which I have no idea how to type in a black box (so e.g., up arrowG Get Help). But I can't seem to do anything with these. Double clicking does nothing. I copied and pasted the up arrow and capital letter and pasted it into the command line (?) and hit return but that didn't do anything either. How do I proceed? Obviously I am not very fluent in this stuff. Thanks. Oh, using a Mac, OS 10.15.5

    If I deleted ripit how do I get and install the new version of ripit? I also think that most people, ( I certainly would), would be prepared to pay a reasonable amount for a change to the program that would allow the use of a better meta data program perhaps GD3 who will sell you a plug in for EAC for under $8.00 and it is terrific. Perhaps it would be possible to make it work for ripit?

    The config changes are in the latest version of ripit. The only problem is updating ripit dons't update the config. VortexBox users did not like me overwriting their custom configs so ripit only installs the new config on a clean install.

    you could always delete /etc/ripit/config and reinstall ripit

    For anyone not familar with the Linux command line you may find WinSCP is easier to use to edit the file.

    Thanks for that I actually did it!! Feeling rather smug as I had to go into the GRUB settings first and fiddle around to reset the root password, I found the instructions on another thread here. Also the file I had to edit didn't look like the one on the screenshot, and also a command failed after, but I just pressed on and it worked! Edited the config file as above and now getting album meta data.

    Right, has anyone worked out how to get album art as mine stopped a couple of years ago, someone wrote it was related to the Amazon website stopping calls to pull them off.

    The default password setting for a vortexbox is user = root and password = vortexbox. If they do not work then you may have a problem.
    If it works the info of what to do is in another post bu Tomcoppa

    Type nano /etc/ripit/config

    In the CDDB Options section make these changes -

    mb=0
    CDDBHOST=gnudb.org
    mirror=gnudb
    transfer=http
    proxy=proxy.gnudb.org:3128

    Just noticed the same thing and came on here, very pleased to see my Liv Zen is not yet a brick.

    I'm a bit thick with technical matters mind you, I've never plugged my box into a screen or keyboard I just plug it in, rip CDs and play music from my mobile phone.

    Someone mentioned installing Putty but I have no idea how to do this. To go back a step, I'm assuming I can
    plug in my box to the TV using the HDMI and my computer keyboard via the USB to control the screen. I've used a Dos box on a PC before so I guess it's like that? Once in what do I do next to open the file mentioned and edit the line (s) required?

    Also, I recall from a convo years ago that the maker Liv changed the password and there's no way I can get hold of it. I think there's a global or override password I can use though?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Very glad that those who have edited their /etc/ripit/config file are back in the business of ripping CDs. Thank you for the kudos and for passing the word in other General and Support threads on this site. Since my post I have ripped over 200 CDs each with complete CDDB data retrieved. However, all without album artwork. Not sure when the album artwork retrieval stopped as I have been using Bliss almost as long as the VortexBox. I also use Tag & Rename (paid) and mp3tag (free/donation) to complete my artwork, normalize things like spelling, abbreviations, comments, etc.

    I have been investigating how the ripping process retrieves the artwork. Basically, searches on Amazon and Google Images are formulated and executed in an attempt to pull artwork. Best I can tell, by capturing the queries and executing them in a browser so I can see the output, the APIs and servers that are queried at Amazon and Google are no longer available. While I was hoping that my second post would be as good as my first (thanks Fifer) I do not have the skill to rewrite, even edit the script used for retrieval of artwork.

I can only assume that the artwork appeared for the first one I tried because either (a) I pressed the Get CD Cover Art" button on the CD ripper when ripping and that may have prompted the download or, (b) Bliss fixed the artwork for me. Not sure why it isn't working though.
    Perhaps with some CD’s the cover art is embedded in the CD itself therefore easily accessible by VortexBox ... I’ve tried several CD’s including the pressing of the get cover art button with no cover art as a result ... I’m using VortexBox 2.4!
