MP3 Support in Linux


Recommended Posts

I don't know why linux doesn't support mp3's natively, probably licensing. You have support for ogg though, which is better anyway. That still doesn't help me with my HUGE mp3 collection.

yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly
yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad
That should do it... while you are at it, install banshee
yum install banshee

Is yum for Red hat/ Fedora Core?

I though it was. And if it is, other OS users will have to of course change the command.
