How to play mp3 in RHEL 5 ?
Question : How to play mp3 in RHEL 5 ?
Answer :RHEL does not support playing mp3 ‘out of the box’ for legal reasons.
So to be able to play mp3 on your RHEL , you need to install the rpmforge-release package :
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 / i386:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 / x86_64:
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS//rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
see for more http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php#B packages.
When is done , as root type the command below :
yum install mplayer mplayerplug-in xmms xmms-mp3
The packages mplayer and mplayerplug-in are for videos and watching videos on-line respectfully. The xmms package is like winamp and the xmms-mp3 package is so one can listen to mp3′s. Mplayer will also allow one to listen to audio formats like mp3′s also. You might to also get some codecs for mplayer, in this case visit:
