amarok being selective(really strange behavior)

well i changed to the version of amarok from the packman repo in order to get m4a files to play and now m4a’s play without a problem but when i try to load an mp3 file to the playlist it will either load without a problem or it will tell me the media couldn’t be played(all mp3 files with no discernable difference) not sure why this is happening but knowing i’m not alone would be nice, if not a fix for this very odd problem

Try installing the amarok-xine package.
