    Angry Playing real media in Amarok 2.x

    I was able to play .rm files(real media) in amarok-1.x and also for a few days in amarok-2.x. But I guess after an update I was not able to play any .rm files. I am just not able to add any .rm files to the playlist. Not sure what the problem is. I have the phonon-xine backend installed and all the necessary codecs. Can someone help me out?
    Note that I can play real media in real player without any problems.

    Here are the related packages that are installed.

    Default Re: Playing real media in Amarok 2.x

    Phonon must have switched backends from xine to gstreamer.

    Either uninstall phonon-backend-gstreamer completely or open the System Settings -> Sound configuration window and switch the backend back to xine.

    Hopefully that will fix it
