Frequently Asked Questions¶
Error “no suitable plugin found” when playing a (.mp3, .m4a, etc)¶
Exaile currently uses GStreamer 0.10 to decode/play audio files, and does not directly decode audio itself. For playback to work, you need to have the correct GStreamer plugins installed.
For Linux users, you may find that other GStreamer programs can play specific file type, but Exaile cannot. Check to make sure that the correct plugins are installed for GStreamer 0.10, as other players may be using GStreamer 1.x instead.
How do I enable output to a secondary soundcard?¶
A: Enable the ‘preview device’ plugin. You can change the secondary output device settings by editing the plugin’s settings.
