RH8 - konqueror crashes when mp3 selected.

Hi, here is my problem.

When ever I click on an mp3 in KDE's konqueror file manager, it crashes.
I put xmms at the top of the 'application preference order' list and changed embedding to 'show in separate viewer' but it has made no difference.

Any ideas?

Problem solved....


Thanks for the answer. I'll get the plug in. I ended up getting around the problem by telling konqueror to use xmms as the mp3 player.

What I found interesting is in the file associations, there is an entry for mp3 files and mpeg layer 3 files. It is the mpeg layer 3 entry that controls mp3 playback, not the mp3 entry.
