Usually, I play mp3 with some music player or other, but just to test these things I use Totem. For FLVs I used Totem, always.
Oh, I apologise for the misunderstanding. I was referring to the situation at hand, i.e. the formats not working. The original post is quite comprehensive, and I was even planning to suggest to turn this into HTML or something, since I found navigating to the different sections by scrolling quite time consuming.Anywho, what sucks? This howto works - simple as that. I've used it myself on 4 Ubuntu versions now.
Anyhow, I have removed everything now -- codecs, plugins, mplayer, etc. I use only (pre-recorded) CDs, YouTube, and FLAC files for music.
I used a combination of the "safe" method and in compiz settings manager deselecting the unredirect fullscreen windows.
Everything is working perfectly now for me
What have I done wrong? After a new reload of Jaunty am now implementing your excellent all in one package but suddenly I have a Java permission banner asking for an OK but I can do nothing to get it to carry on. Help!
Try the tab key and the arrow keys, etc. I remember it does act strangely at times.

Arrow keys did it thanks
The truth is always beautiful, no matter how ugly it might seem at first.
I got this:
any suggestion? I followed the instructions of this Howto.Code:dmesg | grep segfault [ 2412.457520] npviewer.bin: segfault at ff9bea2c ip 00000000ff9bea2c sp 00000000ffa2ab9c error 14 [ 6809.548152] npviewer.bin: segfault at ff9bea2c ip 00000000ff9bea2c sp 00000000ff9e64ac error 14 [ 6814.943248] npviewer.bin: segfault at ff9bea2c ip 00000000ff9bea2c sp 00000000ffc5871c error 14
Just posting here again to report that I can now play mp3 without problems. I had never used the Medibuntu repository prior to the fresh install of Jaunty, so I assumed - initially - that I wouldn't need it. It turns out, that following the instructions on the first page to the T makes all these formats work. (Duh!)
Thanks, ubuntu-freak, for the instructions.
Edit: Oh, and FLV, too!
