XMMS or Redhat 9 won't let me play mp3's


I put mp3's in my redhat 9 yesterday and I loaded them in xmms.. then when I played it, it gave me something about copyright for the mp3 layer. How can I fix this? or what do I have to decode the mp3's to?

Install the RPM

dude......... (if you use redhat) just go to http://www.freshrpms.net and use the dropdown in the upper right hand corner and click on applications/multimedia
search down the list and find xmms-mp3????.rpm and download and install......or if you are using a distro that supports apt just type this at the command line(as root)

apt-get update
apt-get install xmms-mp3



bookmark this page if you are using redhat.......it will save you alot of google searches.........

mp3s in Redhat 9

Man... I managed to get some kind of mp3 playback with xmms 1.2.8 but most of my mp3 sound really bad, as if they were encoded with a really low bit rate. I get the same problem with xmms AND zinf...

Any suggestions? (Just upgraded from redhat 7.3 to 9)
