Angry K3b and mp3 in Fedora


whenever i open K3b on my fedora 8 it shows this strange message:-

Mp3 Audio Decoder plugin not found.
K3b could not load or find the Mp3 decoder plugin. This means that you will not be able to create Audio CDs from Mp3 files. Many Linux distributions do not include Mp3 support for legal reasons.
Solution: To enable Mp3 support, please install the MAD Mp3 decoding library as well as the K3b MAD Mp3 decoder plugin (the latter may already be installed but not functional due to the missing libmad). Some distributions allow installation of Mp3 support via an online update tool (i.e. SuSE's YOU).

Now after this ive tried installing libmad and my console shows its already installed.
Ive also checked my package manager for libmad and it shows that its already installed.

Now please suggest something for it!

Coz i use a portable cd player to listen to my music and if i am unable to write my mp3s then i am in lotta trouble!

You may have a stripped version of mentioned packages. Legal issues for distro maintainers, you know... they want you to be resposible for installing mp3 support, not them.
Anyways, add this link to the sources where you get your online updates:
http://packman.unixheads.com/fedora/8/i386/
or http://packman.unixheads.com/fedora/8/x86_64/
Or you can choose mirrors from here: http://packman.iu-bremen.de/MIRRORS
And then try to install the mentioned libraries. Youb actually may be prompted to do an update on your system after adding above source, I never had Fedora, so I do not know exactly. Update will probably resolve your problem on it's own.
In addition to that you may want to get mp3 codecs. Try searching and installing this package: w32codec-all
DVD playback will be turned in by installing those:

Good luck

I've edited the title of this thread to something meaningful that hopefully will increase the exposure of your thread. You need to go to livna and install the livna-release rpm for your version of Fedora. After that you do
Code:
#yum install k3b-extras-nonfree

Excellent! Thank you. I have also been trying to track down this solution for some time.

I'm glad to have helped. In terms of multimedia stuff, the livna repo seems to have it all so thats one of the first repos any Fedora user should enable.

Thank you to the Genius's who post to this page for their helpful info. A special thanx to the Moderator for the easy way to enable K3b. I would have never been able to do this on my own as I am a newbie to Linux. I chose Linux because of it's great potential and a challenge to me personally. It is definitely not the as " User Friendly " as Windows but It sure is a lot more stable. But then again that may be because I ran a lot more totally useless software in Windows than I do with Fedora 7. Thanx again.

Thanks, redazz, for your post. Just for the record, I noticed that on Fedora 13 (32 bit) the following line worked:
Code:
yum install k3b-extras-freeworld.i686

and an advice for the future: instead of MP3, use OGG/Vorbis - http://www.fsf.org/campaigns/playogg/ - this "problem" will not occur

That file is no longer in Livna, but rather in RpmFusion.

Mp3s are the only compressed format that my friend's DVD player plays. Many other devices do not play ogg/vorbis either, maybe you could let RMS know that?

Yea, great thanks, it still works for Fedora 15, too.

So sad, I'm starting to forget how to build custom RPMs or compile stuff from source. Everything is being prebuilt by them kind folks. Great thanks!!!

Got it!

Used this instead:
Code:
yum install k3b-extras-freeworld
Then installed transcode using yum.
