Banshee wma support

Hey all

iv swithced over to linux from my previus opperating system windows xp. well with the swithch iv still got my huge collection of music files. My problem is that i cant find a wma decoder to use in Banshee.
the default engine for my banshee is helix but i also have GStreamer.
if anyone can help me it would be greatly apreciated.

either where to get wma support for the helix engine / GStreamer
or /
where to download an application for transcoding wma files into the more prefered ogg or mp3 format

many thanks

Yes, but its always nice to have a resolution for things given I found this when having the same problem through Google. Now if someone else is doing the same, they have a possible solution. Its nice to be nice

Old thread.
Duplicate old thread:

It's nice to be nice, but too much of it becomes cloying. The search engines are there for a reason other than pr0n
