I haven't tried the complicated codec installation instructions in
http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/8982#comment:27 for 8.2.0.
However, FWIW I just purchased the Fluendo MP3 decoder for $0 and
installation on 8.2 on my XO was pretty straightforward if you're
moderately familiar with the command line. Now I can play .mp3 files in
Browse and Totem and _some_ Flash animations have sound in Gnash
Playing an MP3 from a USB flash drive, Browse/totem/gst all stop playing
for several seconds every 30 seconds or so. I'm not sure why.
I updated http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Fluendo_mp3_decoder with my
instructions to install the codec and modify Browse's mimetypes. An
expert can attempt rewriting them for dummies ;-) .
If anyone gets a FOSS MP3 codec installed and working, the place to
document it is http://wiki.laptop.org/go/GStreamer#MP3 .
