    Default Amarok can't play MP3

    Whenever I play an mp3 audio track in Amarok, it asks me to install MPEG-3 support. I did these:

    1. Installed the community maintained restricted extras (all installed except for Java due to unavailability of 64-bit dependencies, or due to my lack of knowledge) -- doing this enabled Kaffeine to play all my videos

    2. Downloaded the Fluendo mpeg3 codec, and copied the codec's .so files to the ~/.gstreamer-0.10 folder.

    I rebooted twice but Amarok still prompts me that I need to install codecs.

    Also, I have tried:
    Just Uber Blog Archive MP3 on openSUSE - 5 Minute Fix

    And I have installed xine-extras
    But none seem to work
    Any help?

    Have a read here, there's a "oneclick" that should get things working for you

    Thanks for replying. But as I mentioned in point 1 of my post, I already installed this restricted format package, except that Java plugin didn't install. Installing this had no effect on Amarok.

    WOOT.. thanks a lot!!
    I changed the engine from Gstreamer yauap to Xine, and it started working..
    Sorry for acting noobish, I was born with Ubuntu+Gnome and this Suse+KDE will take some time to get injected within me.
    Thanks again.
