amarok: which audio formats are supported???


Hi,

I'm using amarok 1.4.9.1 without knowing which audio formats are supported.
I have tried to find this information on the amarok website but I could not find anything.
I know it plays mp3, flac, wav. But to my surprise it also plays wma.
As I am a regular user of usenet, it would be nice to know which formats I can play without the need to convert to a well known format.

I don't use amarok myself, but AIUI it uses, or at least can use, xine as a playback plugin, so it should be able to support anything xine does. And since xine can use ffmpeg as a plugin, I think pretty much anything (outside of really unusual proprietary stuff) should be playable.
