Description dmichaud 2002-09-07 23:48:35 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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.
