Question i have problem for playing media in linux-xp


please help me, i have a problem while playing .mp3 ,.3gp, wav, dat, etc.files in linux-xp players. please suggest another player package for that.

exact problem is that -"when i try to open these files, player runs(player window opens) but it neither shows any desired operation from which we can conclude that it is trying to run that file or, sometimes it says 'unrecognised format'."

What do you mean by linux-xp?

Which disto are you using- sounds like you need to install codecs.

Linux-XP *is* the distro.

But yes, it does sound like a codec problem, assuming ALL the players will not play stuff.
Then again, the OP has not really indicated *what* the exact problem is, when trying to play these files.

A quick jaunt to the Linux XP page at DistroWatch says it is an RPM based system- it may be as simple as installing the package for proper codecs. But I will echo Grapefruitgirl's call for the precise problem from the original poster.

Get MPlayer with its full codec pack - you'll be able to play just about any video clip you could reasonably encounter, as well as MP3 files.

Remember folks, without a bit more detail, we don't really know if the OP is having a codec problem, OR maybe it's a more general problem with the sound system itself.

Where's the OP?? Can he come give us a bit more detail please?
