Miro and Amarok Can't Play Files After Latest Xine Update

Sometime over the last week, xine and libxine were updated, and, now, I can't seem to play m4a's in amarok or mp4's in Miro. Amarok gives a message about no demuxer available and Miro says no codec available. I have all the relevant packages installed (including xine-lib-extras-nonfree). Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to fix it. It makes me sad

Interesting. I have the same problem in Amarok. Does anyone know if there is a Bugzilla report for this?

Actually, I just found one here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=441705 - If I read that right, it seems this was fixed in an update last week. But I can't for the life of me find the packages xine-lib-1.1.11.1-1.fc8.1 and xine-lib-extras-1.1.11.1-1.fc8.1 in the updates or updates-testing repo. Or, I am reading it wrong, and it still hasn't been fixed.

Ok: I guess they just haven't made the repo yet - you can download the rpms from koji, though. I really should try to answer my own questions before posting... http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/b...?buildID=45756

Well, actually what you're looking for is in Livna. And perhaps some of you uninstalled the Amarok related package when upgrading to 1.1.11 version without having the xine nonfree package available.
Code:
su -l

yum --enablerepo=livna install xine-lib-extras-nonfree-1.1.11.1-1.lvn8 xine-lib-extras-1.1.11.1-1.fc8 amarok-extras-nonfree-1.4.8-1.lvn8

No, that is not correct. The problem has nothing to do with Livna. I had all the livna packages installed. The problem is with the fedora packages (as outlined in that bugzilla report). The new rpms should hit the repos in a couple days, you can get them from koji now.

Well, strange. I got the xine fc8 packages about a week ago. When it apparead, I had to remove amarok-extras-nonfree.fc7 package to install xine. In the last few days the livna packages appeared and fixed the missing features.

Well, ok. The lag with the updated livna package was a problem. But once it came out, mp3s etc played fine. But m4a's and mp4s still didn't. This is the bug in the fedora packages, whose fix is on the way.

edited - by nvidia I meant livna... (getting late)

Yes, this is not a livna problem. Also, amarok-extras-nonfree has done nothing for a long time -- since sometime f7 or maybe fc6, it has been a transitional dummy package that just depends on xine-lib-extras-nonfree. I haven't had it installed for ages.

MP3s work fine. MP4/M4A, and apparently some others, don't.

It seems like my problem is that xine-lib was upgraded to 1.1.11 but my xine-lib-extras-nonfree was still on 1.1.10.

For the short term (and maybe long term) I found an xine-lib RPM for 1.1.10 and downgraded back to the older version. Problem solved.

I always worried about simply accepting all the upgrade notices I get. I guess this is a good reason not to.
