"Couldn't play" or "couldn't load"? For mp3 decoding you would need to

No, the list is correct. Notice the right column (which you get when
you run that command) where it says "installed". Where it says
"fedora" or "livna", it refers to an uninstalled pkg in the

No, that isn't true. I actually installed them and checked the help, about for them.
They are 1.3.4-beta.  And they don't work just like the downloads from
