Amarok cannot play mp3

If after you have installed media player amarok, and the player cannot play mp3 files, you have to install one more library: libxine-extracodecs

-> sudo apt-get install libxine-extracodecs

use synaptic package manager to install the library

Playing mp3, wma and flac with Amarok works perfectly with the right backend and codecs.

Just replace "libxine-extracodecs" with "libxine1-ffmpeg"

so you should type

sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg

Yes I too found out that installing libxine-mmpeg was the way.
