My opinion is that amaroK is the best audio player under Linux!!!! You only need the codecs for it to play mp3s.. thats why I don't wreally like Suse... Doasn't have media codecs out of the box... but you can download them...
BTW "Help me please" is NOT a good thread title... maybe "mp3 playback issue"....

I too like Amarok, does everything i need and looks purdy, and as stated above, no MP3 support out of the box in Suse 10, a search of these forums yielded quite a few results, such as this one

XMMS, JuK and mpg321 (or mpg123) can all play MP3s as well. I read a review for amaroK in Linux Format and was put off trying it because it sounds a bit bloated.

Yeah you could consider it bloated compared to mpeg321 , plus it requires the KDE libs. Personally i like it because it's clean, functional and has some useful tools, my music collection is a mess so i like the inbuilt tag editor, makes it very easy to organise them as i go

and for suse 10.1
http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/254/42/

Read through the whole article, it might answer some other questions too.

I don't have a favourite player, I don't care as long as it has got a playlist. I use Totem on gnome and Kaffeine on kde. Just because it's already there.
