Amarok doesnt play mp3


Hello,
i have installed amarok, but i cant play any mp3 files.
it send me a message

"The gst10-engine claims it cannot play MP3 files.
You may want to choose a different engine from the Configure Dialog, or examine the installation of the multimedia-framework that the current engine uses.
You may find useful information in the FAQ section of the amaroK HandBook."

i find a solution but i dont know how do it,

"
- Download, compile and install the ffmpeg package
- Run gst-register (you may need to run it twice, as root and as your "normal" user)
- Go to your GStreamer plugin directory (you can find it with gst-config / gstreamer-config)
- Delete the ffmpeg files (or move them somewhere else)
- Run gst-register again
- Start amaroK
- If this doesnt solve the problem look also at this FAQ-entry: 5.10 I have GStreamer installed but when I try to change to the GStreamer engine amaroK crashes, what gives? "
"

i have followed all the tips (the installing instruction in the ffmpeg package)but i wasnt able to make it.
-i have already installed the yum-
What can i make for resolve this problem?, Could you show me another way to resolve it?
Thanks a lot,
Bye

What do you mean by you weren't able to make it? What error messages came up?

MP3 and others

It is the problem with non-GPL modules on FC. Its quite easy to solve this problem. Just a few steps.
1) open terminal and type the following:

su //enter your root password
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

You just added livna.org reposiroty to your yum config, next you can install all codecs u need (xvid, mp3, avi, etc)

2) in terminal:

su
yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly //for MP3 support
yum install kaffeine //nice video player
yum install mplayer //another video player
yum install kyum //Better package manager than pirut for KDE
yum install yumex //for GNOME

3) again in terminal (but not as root)

gst-register

4)Open up amaroK, kaffeine or any other, and play your mp3's

Googd luck!

You should post your lsmod. Just type in "lsmod" at a prompt and post the output. You may have missing modules.

Just try to type "gst" then press <tab> button twice, it will suggest the ending of this command. Try and post your results

amarok problem

i always the same problem when a play a mp3 file in amarok,

The gst10-engine claims it cannot play MP3 files.
You may want to choose a different engine from the Configure Dialog, or examine the installation of the multimedia-framework that the current engine uses.
You may find useful information in the FAQ section of the amaroK HandBook.

What can i do?

Thanks

I'm very glad that you found a solution, but there's the same what I suggested to do . . Actually you don't even need to run gst-register, it needed only on gstreamer version 0.8 and <.
