Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470784
amarok: cannot play song
Last modified: 2009-01-02 18:47:16 EST
Description of problem:
I can not play song with amarok. It is possible to use xine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Works fine here playing my song collection, I cannot reproduce.
Also tried the problematic file referenced in upstream report:
Happy here too.
I suspect that you're having an issue with phonon, not specific to amarok.
For example, do other kde audio-type things work? For example, does anything in
systemsettings->notifications (sound events) work?
Created attachment 323122 [details]
start form terminal amarok 2> amarok2.txt
I am running gnome.
xine can play sound.
"For example, do other kde audio-type things work?"
Only kde software which is installed is quanta and amarok.
audio-type things ??
There is no selection between gnome and kde in login.
In first start off amarok then there was no configuration as in amarok 1.4 in fc9.
There was no selection beetween mysql and slqlite.
FC10 installed from F10-PR-x86_64-Live.iso.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Just joining here as I have just installed F10 final and I have no audio with amarok on any of my mp3 collection. Exaile, xine rythmbox etc have no problem. The only other issue I have is that real player will not run but that is not part of the redhat fedora project so I will have to post to helix community.
Amarok's (default) use of phonon-backend-xine doesn't support mp3 playback out fo the box. (you need xine-lib-extras-freeworld from rpmfusion, or the like).
Amarok can not play ogg files.
Just a 'me too': To reproduce, do the following:
- Login using a GNOME session
- Start amarok
- Start playback of either .ogg or .mp3
I hear no sound.
[nolte@ravine ~]$ rpm -qa | grep -i xine
Hrm, I can hear things logging into gnome or even xfce.
On possibility is perhaps there's a magic extra package I have installed.
Hmmm... Somehow I now have sound using amarok from within gnome. The last steps I did are:
Nov 30 21:17:40 Erased: alsa-plugins-pulseaudio
Nov 30 21:33:52 Installed: pulseaudio-debuginfo-0.9.13-6.fc10.i386
Nov 30 21:37:44 Erased: xine-lib-pulseaudio
Nov 30 22:04:58 Installed: xine-lib-pulseaudio-1.1.15-3.fc10.i386
I just installed Fedora 10 final and I have the same problem. I use GNOME, so I haven't installed full KDE.
Packets that are installed on my machine:
Can somebody change the Platform to "All"? As you see the bug also exists on my i386 installation.
I also wonder, because there is no "status bar" which shows the song that is currently being played, the remainig time, etc.
alias, is phonon-backend-xine installed?
Yes, it is. The following packets are installed:
[mrx@laptop ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i xine
[mrx@laptop ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i phonon
Now I cam play song with amarok.
I am using FC10 gnome ( Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso ).
I have installed Quanta ( kdewebdev ).
I can play ogg and from web and even mp3.
I can have not been able to play from external disk, which is vissable in amarok.
Instaled. ( hint on http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=205019&highlight=amarok)
[floki@flokip ~]$ rpm -qa |egrep 'phonon|gstream|amarok'
Closing per comment #13 (most likely issue was a lack of a usable phonon backend), others with similar issues, please file separately.
I reinstalled F10.
After installing amarok then I could not play.
But after installing
I can play song. ( mp3 )
I can not now play ogg or oga.
I can play ogg and oga with GXine.
( xine has Segmentation fault )
Should phonon-backend-gstreamer not be innstalled with amarok.

phonon-backend-xine + xine-lib-pulseaudio is the default, recommended choice.
