Play MP3 in Mandriva


When I installed my Mandriva 2010 Spring, the Amarok player was installed together.
I can't play MP3. Then I downloaded and installed(at least, I think...) lame.

[ricardo@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa lame
lame-3.98.4-1plf2010.1
[ricardo@localhost ~]$

How do I make Amarok play MP3? E.g. how I associate lame and Amarok?

Greetings from Sao Paulo - Brazil

Ricardo

I think you need to install phonon-xine.

Cheers,

Josh

Yes. You need to install the xine backend in order to play mp3's in amarok.

If anything man, try running amarok as of right now and see if you have mp3 support.

Awesome! I knew it was that package, even though I haven't used Mandriva in a while. Add rep if you feel like it too. Cheers,
