I have Redhat Linux 9 installed in a P4, 1.8 GHz, Intel original 845 GLLY m/b, 128 MB mem PC. The sound card is properly detected and I can hear default sounds well while navigating. The problem lies with playing MP3s. The inbuilt 'Media Player' opens properly and everything seems like the Winamp interface. (i) From the player, when I browse for a MP3 file ( or multiple mp3 files) & click on it, nothing gets loaded into the player or nothing gets added to the playlist resulting in no play. (ii) [Also when I double click on a mp3 file, the default Media player opens up with same result --> nothing gets loaded into the player or nothing gets added to the playlist.] (iii) I tried dragging a mp3 file into the player window and also into the playlist window. No positive result. I have tried around for 100 different mp3 files. I couldn't get success. Pls help.
