    Default K3b wont burn mp3, wma

    Hi,

    I'm trying to burn some mp3's and wma files to cd format using k3b. I'm running Fedora Core 2 and Gnome. Whenever I try to drag either kind of file to the burning window it complains of an unsupported format. Neither are listed as plugins and I'm using the latest version downloaded through synaptic.

    Any Ideas?

    What happens if you locate the file within K3b and double-click on it to add it, will it then?

    If not, are you sure that it was compiled and packaged with mp3/wma support?

    Same thing happens.

    And I don't know if its compiled with that supported, I doubt it though. It was downloaded through Synaptic on Fedora Core 2

    I believe Fedora follow Red Hat's lead and don't risk the "patent" problem with MP3.


    You can download the appropriate package (I think it's got "123" in its name) with no problem. Try "MP3 Fedora" to Google.

    Graham's right, IIRC its the patent issue stuff.

    Try removing your current k3b with Syaptic/Kynaptic and checking out the binaries here:
