Amarok MP3 Support?
 
Hello,

I used to be able to play MP3 files with Amarok, but after a recent update it stopped working!

I am running Amarok 1.4.9.1on KDE 3.5.10.

When
I try to add an MP3 song to the playlist the first time after opening
Amarok, it asks me if I want to install MP3 support for Amarok. I click
on the 'install MP3 support' button, but nothing happens. When I re-try
to add the file, it pops up a message saying the file was not added
because the media is not playable....


Please help!

No idea why yours might not be working, but I am playing an mp3 right
now on Amarok on my Gnome (Hardy) desktop. From Help|About Amarok:
'Amarok 1.4.9.1 (Using KDE 3.5.10)'. And this is following the slew of
kde security updates that were installed recently:

Amarok MP3 Support?
 
Following your instruction, I entered 'xine' to the find box and this is what it found, regarding February:

Commit Log for Fri Feb 27 10:48:41 2009


Installed the following packages:

libxine1-all-plugins (1.1.11.1-1ubuntu3.2)
libxine1-gnome (1.1.11.1-1ubuntu3.2)
libxine1-plugins (1.1.11.1-1ubuntu3.2)
xine-ui (0.99.5+cvs20070914-2)

I have re-installed these packages after purging them as part of the debugging process. My last major upgrade happened on Thu Jul 17 22:42:56 2008, and was able to play MP3 files since then...


In between I have installed the Fluendo Streaming Server package. I think that's what messed things up for me...

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Amarok MP3 Support?
 
I found out another interesting thing:

If I open the Run Command window and enter: 'kdesudo amarok' and enter the password, Amarok opens as root (different colors and all) and the MP3 files are playable...


it seems to be a permissions issue - so how do I fix this?

I guess chmoding the /usr/bin/amarokapp to my user, isn't such a good idea...
Help!

Amarok MP3 Support?
 
Hey all,

by following the advice at the very last post here:
http://amarok.kde.org/forum/index.php/topic,15438.0.html


I was able to fix the problem!

As always, it's a simple stupid little thing...

Thanks to all that helped!
