    fedura 14 update for mp3 decoder


    Hello all,
    2.6.35.14-106.fc14.i686

    I'm trying to use Totem Movie Player 2.32.0.
    The bug is it says the mp3 decoder is missing.
    Using yum to update totem did not work -- not found.
    Using yum to update vlc did not work -- not found.

    What would you suggest is the fix for this?

    thanks,

    --henry

    Fedora 14 hit End of Life on 12-08-2011, so no more updates are coming for it.
    Reminder: Fedora 14 end of life on 2011-12-08

    What would you suggest is the fix for this?
    Honestly, upgrading to a more recent version would probably be best.

    Even if you got Fedora 16 up and running, I think you'd still need to get the MP3 codecs from somewhere else. A good bet is RPMFusion:

    Configuration - RPM Fusion

    You might even be able to install the RPMfusion repository files for F15, then manually edit the repo files to look for the F14 RPMfusion repo (assuming it exists, I don't know).

    Edit: Just checked on my Fedora 16 system and the repo file there could easily be used on your Fedora 14 system. It takes the Fedora version (14, 16, etc.) as a variable and passes it to a mirrorlist script, which in turns points it to a repo URL, e.g.:

    Index of /rpmfusion/free/fedora/releases/14/Everything/i386/os/

    This directory is a list of RPMS for Fedora 14 provided by RPM Fusion. Amongst that list is lame-libs, which contains the MP3 codec. I don't know if this is what totem is looking for, but it's a start.

    • For Rhythmbox or Totem:
    • Code:
      yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
    • For Audacious (which is like XMMS or Winamp):
    • Code:
      yum install            audacious-plugins-freeworld-mp3

    This command will work nicely (it does on my F15 box), as it requires (and so will install) the lame-libs RPM dependency, which in turn provides the shared library /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so.0, which gstreamer ultimately calls.
