What are audio and video codecs?

A video or audio Codec (Compression/DeCompression) is a software component allowing to encode data to be stored on a media (CD, DVD, etc...) and/ to decode it to be visualized or heard. There are also so-called "hard" codecs usually embedded to camcorders or digital video players or professional and semi-professional video cards for video editing and composing.

I am using McFunSoft Audio Editor. What is the easiest way to blend two separate audio files. Ex. I want to fade one out while the other song is fading in simultaneously.

First of all, open one of files, copy it, and close it, and then paste it in a new-opened file. You can use "fade" to work on your selected file. Fade out the second file in the first place, and put the cursor at its original position, then mix it.

How to make a piece of music faster using the McFunSoft Audio Editor. I see that there is a "stretch time" function, but not a "compress time" function.

In "Stretch time" ,100% means the original speed, if you want to speed up, please adjust it to "150%" or something, and if you'd like to slow down, please adjust to "50%" or something.

At the end of the song I get a loud scratch whenever I use fade out. How can I make a fade out last longer?

Please select scratch, and then click the key "del" to delete it.

If McFunSoft Audio CD Grabber doesn't seem to work with your CD, try a different program -- you can find many shareware and freeware programs at http://www.mcfunsoft.com.

I am using McFunSoft Audio CD Grabber. I can't rip any tracks at all. Help!

Try to change the jitter correction in the Settings. If that doesn't work, in the Settings dialog, try using the "Autodetect" read method. If it still doesn't work, try the others individually. If none of this helps, send an email to support@mcfunsoft.com with the make and model of your CD rom, operating system Win95/98/NT, 2000), whether it's a SCSI, ATAPI, CD-R, etc. and a description of the problem. It's also possible that your drive simply doesn't support digital audio extraction -- while most SCSI drives support digital audio extraction, not all IDE drives do.
