MP3 players. Are they still available in Linux?

Are MP3 players still available for Linux? It seems every site i try has stopped supporting it because of software patents. I am running Fedora Core 3. Are there any players left out there? And also is it possible to run Winamp under WINE to get the job done?

hey linux is not all about fedora core 3
its just that FC3 has some patent problems so ther is not support for mp3

u can get that support by either getting the xmms patch or recompiling the kde multimedia package with mp3 support

There are tonnes out there, did you search? As others mentioned, you can install xmms-mp3 on Fedora or install beep-media-player, amarok etc.
