And wait Is winamp available in linux without Wine ?
No. In fact, Winamp is a dead project.

However, Winamp skins work with XMMS.

Always install xmms/audacious for the GUI, & often remove the full featured full screen monster that a lot of distros ship with.
On the command line, often just mpg123 run from mc or the shell.

Thanks for reply !
You are right.Both Audacious and xmms are great.But my friend I did not get the "On the command line, often just mpg123 run from mc or the shell"part clearly.Can you please explain me in simple words.You know I am bit new to the command line.

VLC for me. Plays anything, can convert if needed, and it's faster than other media players.

On Ubuntu, Amarok runs a mini app in the notifications area which gives you lightweight way of playing music from Amarok (it does this by default). You can then restore the full application which loads up the heavy GUI. My machine makes light work of the full app anyway even though the machine is 5 years old!

If you are not using a GUI, or if you use a terminal, you can play music with
Code:
mpg123 <filename>
& mc (midnight commander) is a file manager (that runs in command line mode also), with it you can highlight your music files & then have them played with mpg123.

I prefer to use mplayer through the command line for my music and sometimes videos clips downloaded with youtube-dl. Mplayer is lightweight and plays everything I throw at it even my old Windows .WMA files.

I've used Amarok, audacious, & various others in the past but recently to help hone my terminal skills I just use mplayer and its great.

VLC is IMO the best. That thing only lacks a "make /usr a toast" feature.

I've noticed the some of you have used the xmms player. I did as well. Do you remember or have you tried the gdancer plugin for xmms? If you're not sure what I'm talking about, the plugin uses images that dance to the beat of the music.

The real fun is when you create your own dancing figures using any graphics program. My dancing figures were simple by just using simple shapes for the body and making the background transparent.

This is an old plugin for xmms back in the early days of linux. It may still be archived somewhere on the net. I did find one site.
