Quoted from peterpan_0307:
But in amarok I could not choose gstreamer engine, there is only helix engine option. I can't play any mp3 files.
That's correct - the current version of Amarok does not work with gstreamer. So, you do have gstreamer plugins as you said, and gstreamer can play mp3, but as Amarok doesn't have a backend (since gstreamer doesn't work now) that can play mp3 files, it's unable to do so (Amarok is just a front-end).
My advice: get xine to be the backend for Amarok, then get xine extra plugins. You'll need libxine
, plus possible dependencies.
Also, either add the distribution you use to your profile or mention it in the first post
- otherwise helping is more difficult. I've seen a lot
of people asking about some problem in a distribution-specific forum, even if they don't have the distribution the forum is about. So, even if you post to Fedora subforum, don't just trust people know you're using Fedora - add it to your profile
But..just get the xine packages I mentioned (you don't need xineui
itself -- just the Xine engine and extracodecs for it to play mp3 - and other - files).
EDIT: and of course, as you figured out, after the installation you need to make sure that you define Xine as the engine for Amarok in Amarok's configuration.
