I know from the very first days of redhat 9 that mp3 support isn't included in distrubtions of redhat! So thats not the fact.
Till now I used all versions of Fedora from 1 to 4, I always installed the xmms-mp3 rpm und the new kdemultimedia from kde-redhat project and I could listen to my mp3 files.
But since Fedora 4 I encounter some strange problems. My favorite player amarok doesn't play all of my mp3-files, it only plays some and if I try to play some other mp3's it crashes. Noatun behaves the same, it crashes too.
The strange thing is it crashes on the same files!
So I tried these files in XMMS and XMMS plays all files.
I thought maybe I should try to play my files via gstreamer rather than with xine. So I installed gstreamer, but the problem remains.
Further I tried to upgrade to new KDE 3.4.1 with the files of kde-redhat project, including new kdemultimedia. But the problem still remains.
Now, I ran out of ideas how to get this working.
Does anybody encountered the same behaviour? Maybe there is someone out there who could give me some hints how to fix this?
Please, I dont like XMMS, but if I want to listen mp3's I've to use it! :-(
Thanks in advance,
