MP3 player software and plugin


Hi folks,

FedoraCore3

I have GNOME Rhythmbox 0.8.8 running on this box but unable to play MP3 files because without GStreamer Plugins 0.8.8. Its download site seems moved. Please advise its new site.

Furthermore is it an ideal MP3 player? Other recommendations would be much appreciated.

TIA

B.R.

Hi bondgirl_2170,

Tks for your advice and URL.

I have XMMS running for a while but I could not use it.

$ which xmms
/usr/bin/xmms

IIRC it requireed installing timidity++. But I already have the latter running too. It is working fine.

I can't under what did happen so I just left XMMS there.

Whenever I ran /usr/bin/xmms on Konsole
XMMS started

Clicking [>] on the 'Audio Player' it started the 'Play Files" window

Under "Files" window selecting .mid/mp3 file and then clicking [Play] it closed the 'Play Files" window but nothing played.

B.R.

Even I can't play .mid files. Same thing happened by selecting a midi file. I failed to find out its cause.

Regarding the media player thing, xmms used to be my favorite and for the last couple of months i've been using beep media player (bmp) which is xmms-like but a bit better in interface and theme support,etc.
You can see it at:

Sorry, I can't follow.

Ran
/usr/bin/xmms

to start the 'Audio Player'. The 'Playlists' was always empty unable to add .mid files on it.

I like cryptic messages

I should have written "How about installing xmms-midi like you installed xmms-mp3?"

EDIT: I don't know it exactly, but there seems to be seperate xmms-midi package for some distributions available. Maybe Fedora lacks this like the mp3-plugin is missing.

I could not find xmms-midi with

yum search xmms-midi

Any folks on the forum has any idea which repository provides this package

TIA
