Any particular errors ? Try running xmms from a terminal and see if it outputs any specific errors when trying to play ogg files. Most likely it just cant find the lib's. What libs did you install and where are they located at ?

That's a little confusing, mp3s and oggs are different. I assume you mean that you ripped them as oggs. What is the file extension of the files you ripped? What did you use to rip them?

I used grip and ripped it as an mp3 with an oggenc so its an mp3. I have tried the redhat update as well.

That seems to be your problem. I'm definitely no expert here, but I do believe oggenc is used to create ogg's, not mp3's. So the file extension might be 1 thing throwing your player off. Try simply changing your file extension on 1 or 2 files to .ogg and then try playing them again.

Other ideas include re-ripping them using an mp3 encoder to create mp3's or using the ogg encoder and creating oggs, but not an ogg encoder to create mp3's or vice versa

I wouldn't use a tape player to play a DVD

Cool

yup that worked

OK. Well that worked but now I am curios as to why it would save it as an mp3 if it is unplayable like that. After spending so much time ripping the cd's is thier anyway to change all of the file extensions, with out doing it manually?

To change the extensions use the rename command:

rename mp3 ogg *mp3

It's been a while since I've used Grip, but I believe there is a
setting somewhere in the preferences for the default file extension.

Yes you are absolutely correct on the setting. It's in the Config tab, Encode and then the line that says "Encode File Format" ends with .mp3 if you are making oggs, change that to .ogg

Cool

That might be a valid feature request you might consider sending to them (or doing yourself and submitting to them). I can see how easily it would be for someone not to notice that (although I was lame enough to look at every option before proceeding )

Cool

LOL. Yeah what really makes me feel dumb was that I remember looking at it, and not changing it cause I didn't want to mess anything up. Got to remember to notice stuff like that.
