suse 9.3 amarok and xmms can't play mp3s

I'm trying to play mp3s in amarok andxmms but in amarok no sound comes out and in xmms the files can't even go to the playlist. What's wrong? The file ownership is proper. Any ideas?

PS: Sound is working fine by the way. I can play the same mp3s with Real Player

The mp3 codec is disabled in SUSE 9.3 due to licensing issues. I'm not using 9.3 yet, but I've read you're able to download multimedia packs from YOU to enable mp3 playback. Or you can reinstall XMMS from source.
