XMMS can not play


in Slackware 14.0
I blacklisted snd-hda-intel and am using snd-usd-audio for sound.
every media player are ok except from XMMS.
XMMS can not play mp3 and it says this message below:

Please check that
Your soundcard is configured properly
You have the correct output plugin selected
No other program is blocking the soundcard

now i am using Generic USB Audio Device only.
every other mediaplayers are ok with that.
but XMMS is not ok...
Solution, please?

Greetings,

I recommend you switch to one of the descendants of the XMMS codebase: Audacious.

It still has the XMMS style/layout (*ahem* winamp *cough-cough* hehe), and as long as the USB sound is configured correctly, it should output to it without issue.

HTH. Let us know.

I concur. xmms is very, very old, and as far as I know, not being actively developed any more. Many distributions have removed it entirely. There are many other newer, better players out there now. I've been using audacious myself for forever (I just can't give up my favorite winamp2 skin). There's also the very similar qmmp if you want a qt/kde-based version. Or go with a daemon+frontend style system like mpc or xmms2.

XMMS still works fine, though mostly I use VLC these days.

I have seen that error. It can occur when some other application has its hooks into the sound card or XMMS *thinks* another application is using it.

Try exiting all other programs, then restarting XMMS. If there's still a conflict, run ps -A to see what programs are running; that may give you a hint.

If that doesn't free up the sound card, try a reboot and retest XMMS before starting any other programs.

You could also try selectively un-blacklisting the sound interfaces, one at a time, and see whether that makes a difference.
