CentOS MP3 Xine


Hi,

After 3 years for using Fedora I am finally tired of rebuilding my system every year to stay current. So i am moving to CentOS.

I am trying to get Amarok to play my MP3's. I have it installed along with Xine but I cant find a repo that has xine-mp3 or equivelent.

I have the following repos installed:
atrpms.repo
CentOS-Media.repo
epel-testing.repo
rpmforge.repo
CentOS-Base.repo
epel.repo
mirrors-rpmforge

Please enlighten me on what I am missing!

Thanks,
Mitchell

A little tidbit first, it's not a good idea to mix this many repors, especially atrpms and rpmforge. They don't have compatible packages. If you do mix them, proceed with caution.

Now, to your problem, I'm pretty sure that Amarok is built with grestreamer. Amarok is not in the rpmforge repo, but it is available in the epel repo. In order to get mp3 to work, you will have to install gstreamer-plugins-bad and gstreamer-plugins-ugly. They are both available on rpmforge. This particular repo also has xmms and xmms-mp3 available. Hope this works!

I have xmms installed and xmms-mp3 from rpmforge. I also have gstreamer ugly and bad. But xine still refuses to play MP3's!


Any other ideas?

Code:
[root@mythtv ~]# rpm -qa xine

[root@mythtv ~]# rpm -qa |grep xine
xine-0.99.5-1.el5.rf

gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.9-6.el5
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.4-4.el5
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.9-6.el5

Ok, I'm confused, are you trying to play mp3 with Amarok or Xine?

Amarok, but Amarok uses Xine on the backend. So if Xine cant play MP3's Amarok wont. Unless there is a differant backend I need to use for CentOS.

I gotcha. I'm going to try it when I get home from work to see. Question, did you download xine from atrpms, epel, or rpmforge? I guessing that they would have been built differently.

Ok, I just tried it. I'm also using Amarok from the epel repo. It is using the Xine engine. My mp3s play fine. Where did you download xine from? ATrpms or RPMForge? If you tried installing xine with all those repos on, there is not telling which repos the dependencies came from. Mixing too many repos can be a headache sometimes.

ok, this is crazy. I removed amarok, xine-*. Disabled atrpms stable and testing.

so i had the following enabled:
Code:
[root@mythtv myth]# yum repolist
Loading "kmdl" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading "priorities" plugin
repo id              repo name                                 status
addons               CentOS-5 - Addons                         enabled
base                 CentOS-5 - Base                           enabled
epel                 Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 5 -   enabled
extras               CentOS-5 - Extras                         enabled
rpmforge             Red Hat Enterprise 5 - RPMforge.net - da  enabled
updates              CentOS-5 - Updates                        enabled
Then - yum install xine amarok
xine and xine-lib pulled from rpmforge, amarok from epel.

And now it works!

Thanks,
Mitchell

Great!!! I had a feeling that you had downloaded xine from atrpms and not from rpmforge. Glad to hear that you finally have it working!!
