View Full Version : How to play mp3 on Rhythbox?

31st May 2007, 06:07 PM
Hi, I follow this web site's (http://www.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc6-tips.php#mp3)instruction to install the mp3 plugin. But it does not work. The yum update did down load the plugin but does not seem to be install. (it said "nothing to do") I did all these under root account. But it just won't work. Any suggestion? :confused:

Well for one, the one I think you need listed there is gstreamer-plugins-ugly. It only seems to exist on livna, you need to add livna to your repositories for it to work. This is the one that specifically will allow you to play mp3s though so if you do

yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly

and it says nothing to do, you've possibly already gotten it.... check... do

rpm -q gstreamer-plugins-ugly

if it says a version, you have it, if not it will say something like no package named gstreamer-plugins-ugly
