Question XMMS is not playing file, saying 'couldn't open audio'


I am using Centos, while running XMMS player, it is saying ..

-----------------------------------------------
Couldn't open audio

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

-----------------------------------------------

in the background,

the log report:

** WARNING **: oss_open(): Failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp): Device or resource busy



I don't know how to resolve the problem. Please help me out.



FYI,

Thumbs up I got it..

I followed the other thread which I found here..

the solution for my problem is:

1) right click the option in xmms
2) go to Options
3) go to Preferences
4) In Audio/IO Plugins, choose the output plugin into "ALSA *** output plugin [libALSA.so]"
5) Done..

I should have searched before threading..
