First, I want to thank Clem & co. for a superb os. It's the best oob dist I've used.
Now, the problem: mp3 playback no longer works on Audacious or gmplayer. It does work on mplayer, totem, vlc, and gmusicbrowser. The only thing i've knowingly changed is using Sound Converter to transcode some downloaded mp3s to a lower bitrate. Those mp3s would not play on Audacious or gmplayer (nor would they play on TCPMP on my pda), but they could still play the original mp3s. Now, Audacious and gmplayer won't play any mp3 file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, since gmplayer seems quite integrated with Gloria.
P.S. I just switched to my wife's account to see if she had the same problem. Audacious played all the mp3s fine, but gmplayer only displayed the filename and a running time--no sound.
