Using the latest debian squeeze image I downloaded a free to play mp3 file to test the audio. I added to the LXMusic play list and hit the play button but nothing happens?

Can LXMusic play mp3 files?

or is ther some configuration I need to do first

I have a monitor without sound via dvi from the hdmi port and headphones plugged in to the audio output jack

I'm not sure but are the mp3 drivers (called "non-free" and sometimes have to be downloaded manually) included by default?

Update

sudo apt-get install vlc

I instaled video lan client and audo plays on the headphones

with the vlc player of course, LXMusic still does nothing

Any word on the playability of FLAC files?

So VLC works on the Pi, as I had suspected a long time ago...

So, 2 questions:


Playing accelerated-by-GPU video: Does VLC know to do that?
I assume it automatically downloaded 1.1.3, not an unstable 2.0.1, right?

Unless the video was encoded in Xvid or H264...it's not going to play period (the CPU will max out in less then a second)

Tip we picked up from somewhere else to enable the audio (ASLA) driver:

sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835

Then LXMusic played MP3 files OK.

To get LXMusic to work I had to install decoders. I did the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xmms2-plugin-all
This installs a lot of decoders*, many of which I am unlikely to ever use, so being more selective could save some space on RPi using smaller SD-Cards.

* Including:
MPeg layers 1, 2 and 3
Vocoder
Vorbis
MP4
FLAC

Thanks for this little gem - Pi R1 is sat behind my Big Plasma TV throwing media out on it.

R1 is running Debian Wheezy on an Aldi 8Gb card with this update hooked up via ethernet

At this stage AFAIK only omxplayer and the various XBMC distros know how to play hardware-accelerated video.

Thanks, that was helpful! I was going nuts as I couldn't get to play any music for my first steps.
:D

I get audio with omxplayer, guayadeque, lxmusic.

I don't get any audio with audicious, vlc. I don't know why vlc such a nice app don't get audio output, I went into preferences and changed all kind of audio out and didn't get any sound.
