SUSE / Novell :: MP3 Audio Decoder Plugin Not FoundMay 19, 2007
I keep getting this error message every time I open K3b CD/DVD Burning kreator but MAD Mp3 decoding is install for K3b & Lame is install on my machine. I uninstall it and reinstall with my Smart Package Manager. I am still getting this error message on Suse 10.2.
Error message: Mp3 Audio Decoder plugin not found. K3b could not load or find the Mp3 decoder plugin. This means that you will not be able to create Audio CDs from Mp3 files. Many Linux distributions do not include Mp3 support for legal reasons.
Solution: To enable Mp3 support, please install the MAD Mp3 decoding library as well as the K3b MAD Mp3 decoder plugin (the latter may already be installed but not functional due to the missing libmad). Some distributions allow installation of Mp3 support via an online update tool (i.e. SuSE's YOU).
