MP3 Support


I've looked through other topics and none of the ways seem to work for me. Please spare me the "use the search" because I already have. If you can, please just help me be able to play MP3's on Fedora Core 2.

Angry MP3 in XMMS played in fast mode??

hi,

i have installed the mp3 plugin in xmms in fedora core 1.
i can add mp3 files to my playlist in xmms and get it to play, but its so strange that it play in fast forward mode, and i cant hear any sound coming out either.
for other audio files, xmms works fine; i can listen to the music.




any help is very much appreciated, thanks!

Not sure if this is any help, but right click on XMMS, then go to Options > Preferences.

Try and select a different Output plugin, I have aRts Output selected, and it seems to work fine.

Try selecting ALSA playback, or OSS. Arts will only work if you use KDE.

I followed DrOzz's direction. it works now. but the quality is very poor. playback has morenoise in it now.. I dont know weather its because my mp3s are bad. I dont think so. did anyone else have this problem?
--------------------------------------------------------
ok i download the mp3 plugin from http://www.gurulabs.com/ and it works. I used the only one they had for fedora core 1. It was in rpm format. fedora dosent have rpm manager like red hate 9 does? i had to use the command to install it. in rh9 you can just double click the file to execute it..

Thumbs up it works!

thanks a lot, Kristijan and proudclod...! i changed the output to OSS (another output - only 2 options of output there) and now the mp3 plays perfectly.
