No Sound on Amarok - Gnome

I know Amarok is meant for KDE, but is there any chance to make it run in Gnome?

I hit play but no sound is reproduce.
On the other hand I hit play for the same file in rhythmbox and it works fine.

Any hints?

amarok mp3 fixed

This fixed my problem as well. I was using Amarok to play MP3 files and one of the updates broke it.

See also,

which suggests,
yum install @sound-and-video

which will auto-install all available codecs (especially if rpmfusion repos are setup)

Another way to fix it without installing xine is to change the backend in Amarok preferences. It's been a while since I did that, so my memory is a little fuzzy. I use Exaile now. It's a LOT like Amarok, and built for gnome libs. No need to install all those KDE extras.

As I recall, if you poke around in Amarok's preferences, there's a tab for audio output. Xine is used by default, but there's another option, maybe Puleseaudio? Hope this helps.

Thank you guys
I am using Fedora 12 (KDE) and my Amarok wasn't working very well.. I couldn't listen to music from it.

The comand # yum install xine-lib-extras-freeworld fixed the problem
