Just import the MP3 file, and then drag and drop to the audio line.

How do I do that? All I can do is do an "Import Clips" option. I'm running 10.04 LTS if this helps.

I have been using the latest update in the repository, and you have the option. To update to the newest PiTiVi version, open a Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and write "sudo apt-get install pitivi", without quotes.

I opened the terminal, and all it said it was at the latest version.

Here is what it said:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install pitivi

pitivi is already the newest version.

Have you tried to import the MP3 file with the Import Clips option?

Michael Hazell (techman-) said : #6

Yes. All I get is an error.

can I know what is the error? have you install ubuntu restricted extras?

Michael Hazell (techman-) said : #8

The error is that it won't allow you to import sound clips. What is said is basically that it can't import that. No, I have not installed Ubuntu with restricted extras.

mfauzirahman (mfauzirahman) said : #9

please install that first.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

But what does it do?

Can you help with this problem?
