View Full Version : Mp3

29th October 2006, 03:45 AM
The first thing i did when i installed FC5 was to dl the pluggin as it said to do on hte fedora FAQ to get mp3s to play in totem. This wored for a long time. Then, last nite i yum updated and now when i go tp play a mpr in totem i get the error "Totam could not play the file:"<path> You do not have the decoder installed to play this file. You might need to install the nescisary plugins. So, i went and attemped to reinstall the plugin that the FAQ said to. As i was doing this, my term said nothing to do, after i entered the command, which meens its already there. What is my problem?

Tried the link posted by shams. For the xmms option, with yum, I got "No Match for argument: xmms-mp3" Same message for the gstreamer plugins. I'm running FC6.
