I have been looking all day for an answer to this and have tried many things, but I still am unable to load a song into xmms playlist.
I know this is doable with RH8 because I was doing it not too long ago. Then I reinstalled RH8 with all packages and now I am not successful. I wish I had never done that, as I have other problems also, like not being able to keep the damn Packages window open--I'd like to remove kaboodle. I think it may have something to do with some of my multimedia problems.
Anyway, can anyone offer some suggestions regarding how to load a song into xmms? I finally got LimeWire installed and running, but it's not doing me any good until I can play a song.
If everything is installed correctly, make sure the file names (possibly attributes?) are correct.. like a .mp3 extension on it, for example. I know XMMS wont play unless it has the .mp3 extension there even though it is an MP3. Try another media player and see if that'll work, too..
Distribution: Red Hat (8.0, RHEL5,6), CentOS, SuSE (10.x, 11.x, 12.2, 13.2), Solaris (8-10), Tru64, MacOS, Raspian

Noatun doesn't play it; nor does Audio Player. The file(s) is/are, in fact, .mp3
And the stock xmms that ships with RH8.0 does not play MP3 files. Go to http://freshrpms.net/ and follow the links to the RH8 area and grab xmms-mp3-1.2.7-13.p.i386.rpm. RH removed support for packages that had MP3 capabilities due to patent and licensing problems.
