Find a "codec pack" for your distribution. FFmpeg and Xvid cover most codecs.

Find out the name of the executable and run it in a terminal. You can redirect the output of the program if that''s insufficient. More information than you probably need on IO redirection can be found here.

Most players that can handle streaming audio know what to do with URLs in a Winamp-style playlist file (XMMS and Rhythmbox should handle it just fine, for example). If nothing else works for you, open the file in a text editor and get the URL(s) out of it and play that.

Red Hat is known to not include any ways to play MP3s (due to legal issues), you have to install the MP3 libraries and plug-ins afterward; if that''s your issue, see FreshRPMs for the necessary packages.

If that''s not the problem, use a different media player application that isn''t limited in that way.

try xmms (www.xmms.org) "as WinAMP" and MPlayer (www.mplayerhq.hu) "as Media Player". i installed both from source... DivX & .pls work fine... i''m listening to ''Digitally Imported'' every day... no problems at all :D

I wasn''t aware that xmms depends mpg123 (/321)

On fedora the mp3 support is removed so to use them with xmms you need the mpg123 plugin.

You need mp3 plugin, not mpg123 plugin. mpg123 was an old, console app for playing mp3 files.
