Can't play MP3 in FC8.


I just installed FC8 on my desktop,(and basically removed Ubuntu).
Now, when I try to play an mp3 file, I don't hear any sound. The default player seems to be some Rhythmbox 0.11.2.

I can play view/listen any item in youtube. I could also play any mp3 while in Ubuntu, but not in FC8.
Is there any other audio player I can use or install? Any help there?

Thanks in advance,
Concoran

Hi there,

I use "xmms" to play my favorite music (in .mp3 format).

Did you check that everything is cleared with
Code:
alsamixer
If there is little MM on top of the column, you can uncheck it by pressing m on your keyboard.

Let us know if that solved anything. Otherwise, give a bit more information about your problem.

Cheers

Try the following
Code:
#rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm
#yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras gstreamer-ffmpeg

I did execute both the commands, and it seemed to go through well. Now, how do I run xmms?

Update: I ran the commands, and can run the mp3 in Rhythmbox. However, I don't know wher xmms is, or how to run it. But at least for now, I can listen to mp3. Thanks.

If xmms is installed on your machine, you can find out where it is with
Code:
which xmms
I would then just call the program from a command line through
Code:
xmms
You can then check and tune the program for your needs.

Cheers
