I am using Dapper Drake on amd64 ith a fully updated amarok, and I have
libxine-extracodecs installed. I get the same error message as Jared
Sutton, that is

Error Loading Media
There is no audio channel!

This bug has been the subject of a discussion in the forums
(http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1252222), where the problem
was identified to be xine reporting that flac files have no audio. The
following patch to libxine seems to fix the problem.

Jiilik (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=1413567&postcount=39) and
seem to have built binaries which fix the problem for a great many

A later security patch has required a new build for this bug by ivomans
(http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=1585150&postcount=72) and dukeku

This problem affects me because a significant part of my collection is
now stored in flac format. I would like to see an official patch to
solve this.
