    amaroK help

    I'm trying to play mp3s and songs from my ipod [m4a] through amaroK on SuSE 10 -- but I can't get anything to play. AmaroK finds all of my music fine - even the songs listed in my ipod - but none of them play. Whenever I click play on a song it just sais "playlist finished" and doesn't play. The volume on amaroK and my system are both full blast, and I tested my speakers through the control panel so I know they're fine.
    Do I need to install plugins or codecs or something?

    Ehm... I haven't read the amarok code, but it's seems to lack about file reproduction... I can play only MP3 and OGG files (but only stereo MP3...)
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"

    Install gstreamer

    you need to install gstreamer and libmad0 packages
    (i use debian so I dont know how suse 10 package manager works)

    then tell amarok to use gstreamer (TOOLS-CONFIGURE AMAROK-ENGINE)
