hmm...well, first you may want to get a new version of Xmms from rpmfind.net search "xmms". You have 1.2.10--I have 1.2.7. In anycase, i think we may need more information. does grip or cdplayer work? Whats your soundcard? Etc....

Do get sound in some stuff, like games.

it says name of song and artist and plays and everything, just doesnt put out sound.

do you have alsa configured? I had some seriously quirky behavior from alsa drivers. And surprisingly I had better performance from the 0.9.6 drivers than from the 1.0.4 drivers. Make sure you have some drivers of some sort installed, that your volume is turned up (using alsamixer) and that your soundcard is detected (run lsmod) in a terminal. good luck

Try the fallowing:

Open your XMMS then right click somewhere on it.
Go to the Properties (Ctrl + P) and look for your Output Plugin. I think you're currently runnings the Disk Writer-Plugin [libdisk_writer.so] try to change it. The one which worked for me was eSound.

If you can't play only CD's, then the problem may be that you don't have a cable from the CD drive directly to your computer's sound card. What XMMS's CD Audio Player plugin (Press Ctrl-P in XMMS to bring up preferences) will do is directly feed the audio from the cd to the sound card, bypassing the digital playback. What you would need to do in this instance is get the XMMS cdread plugin, which reads the CD digitally and then sends it to your sound card. RPMFIND.NET

xmms not playing mp3

Hi everyone,

I have a similar problem. My Linux plays cds, but XMMS shows my mp3s as gibberish in the playlist, and doesn't play them.

Any ideas?
