Playing audio samples from

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 I’ve tried in Mozilla, Konqueror, and Opera, and I hear nothing :frowning:

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 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.

Use the rpm command and pipe it to a file, for example;

rpm -qa --last > rpm_install_list.txt
less rpm_install_list.txt

Thanks for that. Here’s what I installed to resolve my sound previewing problem (maybe it was only one that fixed it, can’t be sure):         Fri 06 Feb 2009 22:22:28 EST
