    Default Playing audio samples from Amazon.com


    Does anybody know if there's a codec package of some kind that I need to
    install so that I can preview sound clips on Amazon.com? I've tried in
    Mozilla, Konqueror, and Opera, and I hear nothing :-(

    Konqueror offers to open the samples with Amarok, but it says "plugin
    text/uri-list decoder is missing" but I'll be darned if I can find a
    package that might satisfy this missing dependency.

    OK, this morning I can now play sound samples on Amazon.com. One of the
    many packages I installed last night must now be working after the PC
    had a rest overnight.

    For future reference, one of the packages I remember installing was
    gstreamer-ugly, and some python gst package. I don't know how to see a
    list of software I've installed over time.

    Hi
    Use the rpm command and pipe it to a file, for example;
    Code:
    rpm -qa --last > rpm_install_list.txt
    less rpm_install_list.txt

    Thanks for that. Here's what I installed to resolve my Amazon.com sound
    previewing problem (maybe it was only one that fixed it, can't be
    sure):
