Aqualung might receive some votes if it were added:
http://aqualung.sf.net

BTW it says 2006 in the blurb following the forum title.

Mp3blaster does not appear to have had any release in 2007.

What exactly do you mean by an "audio media player"?

My guess would be that an "audio" media player is a media player that is incapable of displaying video, and a "video media player" is one that can play audio or video files.

By that definition the answer to "What do you use to listen to audio?" could well be a "video media player" (as it is in my case), but none of the options allow for this. Also there could be more than one answer to that question.

Ammorok. It's a podcatcher, folder handler, cd, streams, mp3, and so on.

Second. (And here's some more text because it won't accept anything less than ten characters.)

Actually I use Kaffeine but as it was not an option I voted for the only other audio app. I use Songbird.

You mean there is something other than mplayer?

I voted for XMMS only because mplayer was not a choice...

How about mplayer?

mplayer should be added to the list.
