Solved: Exaile Won't Play MP3s

It plays flv, no other problems. Is there some Debian package that is the analogue of ubuntu-restricted-extras?

Exaile uses the GStreamer engine for audio playback. You can play the audio formats of your choice by installing the appropriate GStreamer plugins without having to manually recompile the whole program. For example, since most Linux distributions don't support proprietary formats such as MP3 by default, you can add this functionality to Exaile (and other GStreamer-based programs) by installing the Ugly Plug-ins package.

I would add gstreamer-plugins-good, bad and ugly...

I can confirm, that at least gstreamer-ugly was required.
