Xmms can play mp3s by default. There is no need to download a codec. Do you have permissions to your soundcard.

Check for:
/dev/dsp user permissions for OSS
Arts plugin for KDE
ESD plugin for Gnome
Alsa plugin - any kernel of 2.6.x

Actually axial, I had to install xmms-mp3 and I'm using Debian Sarge. So I think it depends on the OS that one is using.

newer rh oses ship with a neutered xmms that will not play mp3s. i don't recall if this started back as early as rh9. if this is the situation, the solution is to build/install xmms without disabling mp3 support.


what errors to you get when you try to play mp3s? do other music files play? please describe with more details.

My player playes mp3 files at quite a high speed like 1 min per sec. Every time for every mp3 file.
I do not know why. CPU usage is also like hell. My laptop freezes for a min.

Any ideas ???

You should post a new thread instead of just asking questions on this one.

Are you sure you have the MP3 plugin installed AND enabled?
As for your problem, did you play with any plugins?
Did you reset everything in the options?
Does anything ELSE play (other media format)?
