I'd think xmms, xmms2, bmp(x), and audacious should all be distinguished though - all are 'successors' to xmms and have different developer teams, orientations, and (by now) codebases.

That's one of the reasons I use mpd (usually with the ncmpc ncurses frontend). However, I voted for audacious. It seriously rocks and now that it exists, there's zero reason to use xmms for anything anymore. mpd's had one release in the last couple years and didn't change much - not that it needs too, but I'm just saying audacious has impressed me most lately.

Clearly Audacious. Graphically updated way of saying XMMS - and it fits perfectly on my Xfce desktop. Exaile is promising, though.

Thank god I've reading this thread. I read "mpd?" and I said to my self: let's figure out what it is. Now I'm delighted. MPD rocks! I now use gmpc as a GUI front-end and whenever I'm on the console I do not have to go anywhere else. I deal with it through mpc or the fancier ncmpc.

And as digiot said, I can logout, re-login, kill X, and my music is still playing. This is awesome! Amarok, Exaile and everyone else should have a mpd client embedded.

XMMS is fine as long as it is not the Fedora/redhat issued RPM. I always go with rpm straight from the xmms site since the vendor issues package will not do mp3's

I have just recently discovered a player that is is a lot like amarok but native to GNOME called "listen" and it's the easiest I have seen so far and the best gui. It would have gotten my vote

I am always eager to try new software, but the word "listen" is not exactly the most friendly for a search engine if you want to find out about a new alpha software for Linux. It is more commonly related to the English verb.

I tried a few queries on Google and I finally got to it with gnome listen. The actual URL of the project is this one, and I am running now to test it. I cannot cease to be impressed by the enormous amount of great software that's being made for Linux. I just found out about Exaile and Quod Libet a few days ago, and now Listen to this new one. Linux rocks!

*XMMS*

Funny thing is... nothing in Windows comes close... maybe Winamp, but for the most part media players all sucked until xmms. You can't break xmms. It will happily load *thousands* of MP3s and not crash or lose them. I wish every online radio station did streaming mp3s that xmms could hook into.

For a long time was XMMS fanboy, but then found AmaroK, so my vote goes to AmaroK (altought it's kinda slow for me on Ubuntu 5.10, it's much more stable than XMMS)

It's considered Video Player, and so is MPlayer (my choice for everything except MIDI, which are served by Timidity++)... Read the beginning of the thread: we are both out of luck.
