Re: [vox-tech] Playing Mp3 files


Thanks mark,  you are the best.  You always come up with something better

I installed it today.  You know i tried to install this way back but didnt
work.  I downloaded
rpm version of mplayer.  Guess i m not that good with rpm but this time i
did something differently
I used Webmin to install this rpm and i m sure the error i got before was
something to do
with [ dependency ] so i selected no dependency option and installed this
rpm and it installed
like a charm.  Guess webmin has some nice interface to do these kinda of
work :).

I played one .dat movie to start with and it worked.  I guess i need to get
my hand
dirty with lots of command line option(i downloaded command line version
its small in size).  Didnt try mp3 one it, you think it can play mp3 too.  I
am at office
now but will go and try at home.

Yes it didnt work :):):):):):):).  It say Nicely "We dont support mp3
anymore".  You
think some plugin kinda trick will work.  If yes lemme know the place from
where i can download and make it work.  One think it did better than redhat
is that it put up this message that we dont support mp3 anymore, in 8 it
stud dumb with
no message as to why its not playing.
