Question Not able to play MP3s through X-MMS


Hi again,

I got some replies for this post the last time around. But the problem does not seem to go away even after I used OSS. The files are selected fine in x-mms and when I press "Play", the program just stays as it is without playing the MP3s. I checked out if I was using the right options. Everything checks out fine. My system is an AMD 1700+ XP with a compatible MSI motherboard (with a built in soundcard.) Please advise!! The MP3s play fine in windows and Knoppix, but not in Mandrake.

Sincerely
Arun

in xmms you can select output plugins, try switching between them.

Open a console window and ps xa | grep arts to see if the arts sound server is running if it is you have two options kill off the process or install xmms-arts plugin and use it for the sound.

i had this problem yesterday. Once you open the program, right click and go into plug-ins. For your installed mp3 codec just change the output plug-in, there will prolly be 2 or 3, jus switch between them and you should be able to play em.

so yeah, basically what neenee said, just switch between the output plug-in for the mp3 codec

Arts is more than likely running I had this problem with every Mandrake install I ever did. Mandrake starts arts at every boot and ships xmms without the plugin, guaranteed failure and a real smart decision.
