XINE...playing .mp3's and .ogg files


I just installed xine via rpm from www.freshrpms.net Went to www.mplayerhq.hu and got myself the essentials codecs packages extracted it to /usr/lib/win32 as per instructions on www.xinehq.de

I can't seem to play .mp3's or .ogg file formats, but I am able to play .avi, .wmv, .mov, etc etc.

Any ideas why I can't play these *simple* audio formats, but I can play the videos (btw the videos do have sound, and I can hear it)

The .ogg files and .mp3 files I have play for approx. half a second and I can hear them through my speakers but then XINE quits, no error no nothing.

The only hint I can possibly provide is that at the top of XINE when it starts is a "There is no MRL." error, I have no idea what this means though.

I am using Fedora Core 3.

Thanks in advance.

when you say that you got the 'essential codecs,' i'm assuming that you got the corresponding mp3 and ogg codecs??

Well, I don't see it there. I think xine can play ogg at least by default (it is a free format), so I don't think it is a codec problem. Also,. I have been doing some testing on my own and if I run xine from the command line and specify a playlist, the same songs that were not playing, now play! I don't understand.

Also, while I've got someone's attention..is there a way tp supress both portions of the GUI for xine. I ask because I want to run a cron job that will play a playlist in the morning to wake me up. I have tried passing -I -H -IH -gH --hidegui -H, but I can only supress either the video window or the main panel..not both If the GUI isn't disabled the cron job doesn't run

Whayt version of xine are you using and where did you get it from. Try uninstalling xine and xine-lib and try out the packages from the xine nightly builds page.

Did you try uninstalling and using the packages from the link I posted above. That way you will know whether it's a problem with your package or if it's something else. To play ogg files, you must have libogg and libvorbis.

I know there is no MP3 support in FC. Xine does not come with FC so there should be no conflict with FC. Xine has the MP3 support builtin.

Also i think it is something in the XINE UI file because it worked fine in 0.99.2
