XMMS 'censored'?


I tried to get XMMS (on Redhat 9) to play a free CD that came with the Sunday Times, and I got a message from Redhat pop up on screen saying that 'mp3 capability had been removed, sorry for the inconvenience'.

Anyone know what's going on?

Anyone know what I ought to download to vercome this?

Thanks in advance

Simply download an addon rpm from www.xmms.org

Its due to copyright, patents or sommink

Yeah, I got the rpm.

Cool - it is even targetted at RH9, so it should work fine. I'll leave work now and go home and test it. Thanks again, dude.
