I installed Mplayer and codecs. That let me play the files with Mplayer.
Still wont play with Gstreamer and I installed all of those, plus it
I fixed the immediate problem by re-ripping all the cd's to ogg files
and deleted all the wma's, which just hit me: I have no more wma files
to test. LOL I hate not knowing what a problem was and knowing there is
a problem, but oh well. Maybe an update will fix it one day and if i
ever come across another wma it will play =o)>.
Thanks for the help and all the responses.
