I like using xmms to play mp3's such as podcasts I follow. But xmms has some issues in combination with alsa. It just stops at the end of an mp3 on my laptop. Selecting OSS output and not alsa 'fixes' this but then I get the problem of an unshareable audiodevice (how ancient!). In the Ubuntu community documentation for XMMS I found this remark:You may want to check out Audacious or BeepMediaPlayer which is a fork of XMMS using GTK2 - meaning that its menus and dialogs integrate with your system's themes better than XMMS's.I gave audacious a try and it's indeed nice. Works for me. The annoyances are gone. Now to train the new finger macros.
