noatun problems!


I recently installed RedHat 8 and, from what I read on several forums, this distribuition does not come with the plugins to play mp3 files.

I already downloaded an rpm from in order to xmms player to work and it went perfect and I can now play mp3 files with this player.

The problem is that noatun is my favorite linux player and I would really like to have it working.

Is there a way to obtain the plugins for this player, similarly to xmms?

I should also remark that when I try to open files from noatun, all the mp3 files are "invisible", i.e., mp3 files are non-supported files.

I am sorry if this is an obvious question! ( )

Thanks for all the possible help!

There is not a simple solution to this. Perhaps you have found a better mp3 player than noatun?

I know that for FC4, KDE-RedHat's "kdemultimedia" package has Noatun that will play MP3; otherwise Livna also has a "kdemultimedia-extras" which does the same thing. But I don't know of anything for RedHat 8.
