MP3 on Fedora 10 using Fluendo MP3 Plugin

Hi All,

This post just describes how to get MP3 support to Fedora 10.

Fluendo is a website which provides codecs for Linux systems. Check out

In particular fortunately to all MP3 lovers, Fluendo provides free MP3 plugin.

Go to

Create an account and then download the plugin.

Installing is pretty simple.

Use this command as root:
rpm -i fluendo-codecs-mp3-7-1.i386.rpm

Thanks to many changes made at Fluendo.

The older plugin install procedure is also given below for your ref:

The file downloaded would be a zip file.

Just unzip it. In the unzipped folder you would find a .so file.

Copy paste this .so file as follows:

1. Login as root or issue the su command.
2. Go to your root's home folder and type ls -a.
3. Then you find a gstreamer plugin folder which is a hidden folder.
4. Find the plugins folder or something as input folder.
5. cp /from__folder/*.so /home/gstreamer/

Thats it you are done.

Enjoy MP3.

Also if possible try out Mandriva Spring 2008 with which Fluendo Plugin Manager is

Take care,
