Hello,

I recently downloaded and installed the latest version of Gnome-mplayer but I encountered this error message while playing an audio file.

Is there problem with the configuration or anything else?

I need your assistance.

Thanks for everything.

Gnome-mplayer

Adding file://home/pk/.Virt…okno/Wokno.xml to playlist

Hello Paul,

There is no problem with the player. The error indicates that you have tried to open an ".XML" file. It is not a media file. XML stands for Extensible Markup Language. This type of file can be opened through most of the browsers or Notepad++ and XML Notepad are the software programs that support this file format. Try opening a valid media file in your player with extensions ".mp3, .mp4, .wmv etc"

I hope it helps you figure out your problem. Have a good day!

I guess the problem is not with the media player but with the file you want to add to a playlist. A media player only supports media files such as audio files and video files. Examples of audio files are MP3, WAV, WMA, AU, and AIF. Examples of video files are MPG, AVI, VOB, M4V, MP4, FLV, WMV, MKV, MOV, QT, and 3GP.

The file you are trying to load or add to a playlist is an XML file which is not a media file. XML stands for Extensible Markup Language. It is a file format used to build common information formats that use the standard ASCII text. It is similar to HTML because both have markup symbols that describe the contents of a file or page.

If you want to play an audio file then definitely you clicked on the wrong file on your computer because “Wokno.xml” is neither an audio file nor a video file or a media file in general. It is a text file that contains different tags and formatting similar to an HTML document.

If you are looking for MPlayer for Windows, go to MuldeR's OpenSource Projects which offers the latest version of MPLayer.
