Description of problem:
I used oggenc 1.0r3 (included in RH Linux 7.3) to create new 256k bitrate ogg
files. XMMS will not play them. It cycles through a bunch of bogus bitrates in
the display and outputs no sound. using ogg123 to play the files from the
command line works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use oggenc to encode a 256k bitrate ogg file under RHLinux 7.3
2.Try to play the file in XMMS
Actual Results: No sound is output, XMMS display jumps around and is apparently
confused by the ogg file
Expected Results: The ogg file should have played back normally, just as it
does when I use ogg123 from the command line
I used grip as an oggenc frontend.
I can provide ogg files if you cannot reproduce.
Turned out that the problem was the extension of the files was .mp3 and not
.ogg. XMMS gets confused by this.
