That's a bug ! For Warty, we were advised to install 'sox', which
supposedly gave ogg, flac, mp3 and wav preview in Nautilus. In fact,
only wav and mp3 worked. In Hoary, it got worse, only mp3 works... I
guess for Breezy, nothing will work at all ! ;-/

I remember someone here mentioning some other pacakge that worked,
"mpg123" or something, can't remember exactly, and never tried it....

I just hope Breezy will preview common sound files format out of the
box, or advise us on a package that does work, unlike sox... sox sux ;o)

Vince, couldn't resist, ashamed ;-)
