Unable to find drcoders for playing mp3.


hello everyone...
I am newbie and had just installed CentOS 5.4 in my system. Now I cannot play any music/video files. The error always shows that
"You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins."
I have searched for decoders in Google, but I am confused of those many stuffs.

Please help me to learn this simple and basic concept.


Thnxx

Those files are named ' codecs '.

Not knowing, which player, you are using, this may be "first suggestion" :

1) su
2) yum install gstreamer-plugins-good

.......
