One thing I am suspicious of is that you might
not have the right decoders installed. For example,
if I recall correctly, you cannot, by default,
play MP3 files, because that is a proprietary
format. The easiest way to install these decoders
is to set up rpmfusion as a repository and then
search Add/Remove Software for the right decoders.
If that's not the problem, then spell out the
problem in greater detail, that is, "when I do
this, then this happens in stead of that", etc.
