question mp3 players


I have tried xmms and winamp for fedora 7..

Neither one of these mp3 players are functioning they way I want. I have a windows file server and I mount the drive with my music directories..

When I use winamp for windows I can right click and put all mp3's in a play list... this is good..

When I use either mp3 player in linux it will error out if I try to play a directory with subdiretories..

Is this a possible error because it is a mounted drive from a windows share?

Is there an mp3 player that provides this functionality?

Thanks

Not likely, I'm doing it right now. Mounted mp3 shared directory currently playing in xmms. The directory structure is mp3/artists/albums/mp3s on the shared windows drive.

Can you play local mp3 files? I believe fedora disables this by default.
Good luck.;-)

I can play the mp3's over the share but I have to open up just one directory. It will not go deeper into the directory structure. I think I am gong in the right direction. KAffiene sees to do what I was asking but as of right now it doesn't see to have a filter to play an mp3 file. I will keep you updated.

Thanks

When you add songs from xmms, are you choosing the add directory option from the menu. When I choose that option, all subdirectories are included in the playlist or is that not what you're trying do?
Good luck. ;-)
