Probably caused by PulkoMandy's changes to FFmpeg recently. Reassigning to him.

Make sure your ffmpeg is up to date (version 0.11.5 is needed), and please run MediaPlayer from Terminal and share the output you get there.

Also, this has nothing to do with the media_addon_server (media plugins are not the same as media add-ons).

Ffmpeg version was 0.10.2. However, in order to update to 0.11.5 the package manager says it has to uninstall Webpositive and Haikuwebkit. I went ahead with the ffmpeg update, and CD's are now playing again. Attempting to reinstall Webpositive again brings up an error message that libavcodec is not available.

HaikuWebKit does not require FFmpeg directly, so I dunno what's up with that...

I guess that libtool has linked in transitive dependencies as usual; these have been added then in HaikuWebKit requirements. This is a topic I brought up on the mailing list without really following up.,2

It does require ffmpeg for web audio support (not the same as html5 audio). It uses it to compute Fourier transforms and other similar stuff. libtool is not involved. this is reported in #11371 already, so closing this.
