mp3 and mpeg support for fedora c3


Don't kick me to the curb if this has been asked before - but my new fedora core 3 software does not play mp3,s rip mp3,s or play any mpeg vids. Am I missing something? I figured this would be included in the basic setup. Could someone point me in the right direction for whatever I need? I'm still pretty new to this.

When you first installed the operating system what type of install did you choose?

Did the "Test Sound" check work with your audio device?

yesd - test sounds work just fine. I just downloaded xmms and now I seem to get sound - I am now just reading that fedora does not include mp3 or mpeg support due to licensing issues?

Is there a working version of Helix that I could try?

<Don't kick me to the curb if this has been asked before...>

only a few hundred times.

Look here for an MP3 codec ... atrpms.net/dist/fc3/lame/

Investigate Xine & Totem for Mpegs ... Much easier to get up and running on FC3 than MPlayer

Use apt or yum to install extra packages for Fedora. Good repositories are located at freshrpms, dag and fedora extras.
