playing mp3's (and wma files??) in Amarok


How do I get Amarok to decode and properly play mp3 and also possibly wma files? I added the livna rpm package but what then?

Thanks

To play an Mp3 file with Amarok,drag and drop the file you want to play into the playlist window and hit the play icon.
As for wma you will usually need the W32 codecs available from the Mplayer website.
Check the install/readme files as to where to install them.

I'm no Fedora expert but i think the command should be:

Code:
yum install amarok-extras-nonfree xine-lib-extras-nonfree
The following faq may be of use also:

My apologies for missing out the "install" part in the yum command. Thanks the trooper for noticing and correcting my mistake.
