Non-free plugins for GStreamer

GStreamer is a multimedia framework used by many media players including rhythmbox, banshee, totem, listen, exaile and others. Due to legal issues support for various non-free formats , including mp3 files, aren't included with GStreamer by default. You can add support for mp3 and other formats by installing an add-on package from the third party repository rpmfusion.org below.

Applicable to Fedora Versions

  • Fedora 10+

Requirements

This assumes you have a working Fedora installation and that you have configured yum to use the RPMFusion repositories.

Doing the Work

  1. Install GStreamer plugins:
  2. yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-ffmpeg

Troubleshooting

How to test

Play a media file in a restricted format in a GStreamer powered player, for example a mp3 file.

More Information

A list of GStreamer powered applications is available at http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/apps/
Some of these are packaged for Fedora.

Disclaimer

We test this stuff on our own machines, really we do. But you may run into problems, if you do, come to #fedora on irc.freenode.net
