Getting Music to play in Fedora 16

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello.

Yesterday I switched from Ubuntu 11.10 to Fedora 16 to give it a try, I was intrigued by the interface without gnome.  I've got everything working and to my liking, save for one thing.  I can't get .mp3 files to work in any media player.  The system is up to date, and I did some googling around, but couldn't find a solution that worked.

 

I did however find a guide that claimed it would solve my problems, I can play .flac with Rhythmbox, but not any of the other 15GB of music I have.  Thanks for any help.

 

PS: When I try to open a .mp3 file in a media player I get a dialog saying it needs a plugin, when I click "continue" it says no source has been configured for the plugin.

Make sure you have the Gstreamer good/bad/ugly plugins.

You might want to try these wiki pages:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Installing_the_Fluendo_MP3_plugin

Fedora can be a PITA sometimes due to its FOSS exclusivity.

This is why I like MPD. No need for plugins to get MP3's playing, lol.
