Don’t be silly, why on earth would VLC work fine on your Fedora distro? Err.. Coz that’s what’s on MACs innit? Hmm.. Seems like the previously king multi media player that is VLC doesn’t wanna show me any MP3 loving when using on my Laptop. Pleasantly though, XMMS has a sufficiently pretty interface and a kinda robocopised WinAmp look and works perfectly. I’m over it. It’s just a shame after running through every ‘your audio pops/crackles/skips in Fedora’ thread that VLC just wouldn’t cut it.
[root@me ~#]yum install xmms xmms-mp3 xmms-faad2 xmms-pulse xmms-skins
That command will sort you out a nice XMMS player with full mp3 support in Fedora 10.
