Audio Decoder

So, I can't get any of my music to play.

I'm somewhat new to Linux in general, so when it said I needed some kind of decoder to listen to my music, I just googled it and found this program called "Fluendo".

I downloaded it and installed it how it said to, but it didn't change anything.

Can anyone explain to me what I need to do to get my music to play?

Thx.

I use xmms and audacious

Fedora has no mp3 support because it is US-based. It is possible to get mp3 decoders from overseas, however. A popular place to start is the Livna repo:

http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/

Then
yum install xmms*
or
yum install audacious*

I tried audacious. Similar results..

Unable to play files.

The following files could not be played. Please check that:
1. they are accessible.
2. you have enabled the media plugins required.

Add the Livna repository.
Then search kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree and mp3 in package manager (add/remove programs)

Amarok is IMO the best audio player, it uses xmms for decoding i believe.

They're mp3s.

And I instaled kde...extras-nonfree. And it doesn't help. When I search mp3 about a million packages appear...

And I've tried 5-6 audio players now, none of which will play anything I have.
