    It would be nice to implement an addon, which rips Audio CDs from an USB-CD-rom drive, more or less automatically to an attached USB-HDD.
    In my opinion best solution would be to use the existing “Morituri“-Ripper that has only a command line interface, and uses the accuraterip database it also automatically writes Metadata to the Audio files using musicbrainz2-database.

    To me this would be the last “killer”-feature in combination with the squeezebox-server, so i don’t have to use my Windows-PC for this task anymore.

    Thank you in advance,

    Hello Dirk, the addon you are asking for, is already included in Kodi. If you connect a USB CD-Rom drive a new tab will pop-up. You can choose to rip and save or play

    Hello Ronald,

    thank you for your post. Nice little build! I like Apple cases to be reused for other purposes.
    Back to topic: I don’t use Kodi, since I do not have a display attached to the Pi. My wish is to use the GUI of Max2Play as front-end for the ripper, so I can use my Android device as controller.
    Does the ripper in Kodi provide Accuraterip support? Is it possible to set the Kodi-ripper in a kind of “automatic mode“ so I would need a display just once for the setup?

    I was using the x86-Linux distribution “Daphile“ before as LM-Server, Squeezebox player and CD-ripper on an old Shuttle Atom d525 barebone, it worked so nicely: I simply hat to put in a CD into the DVD-Drive and when everything was ripped properly, it simply opened the drive. Perfect!

    Unfortunately the Barebone uses too much power (~25 watts idle) to run it 24/7 so I decided to move to a Raspberry Pi-based solution: Max2Play.

    Hi Dirk,
    You can access Kodi’s interface with our VNC server addon and a VNC viewer app from anywhere in your local network. We currently do not have a feature for CD integration in the works.
