Why not use xmms? Or is it because you want Winamp 5 features?

well
a) winamp looks and works much better that xmms !
b) winamp can play many more file types than xmms.
the main thing that made me want winamp is tonight i tryied watching a film rip which i keep on my server (along with many more things ) and i couldn watch it because i didn have a player that played avi's ! it wasnt anything against xmms juss the standard players in general.

do you know any linux equlivant's to winamp ?

Winamp can play avi's! In fact, if you know, you can make it play *anything*.

Get this: http://xmmsmplayer.sourceforge.net

I meant to say 'XMMS' instead of winamp. brain fart

The link I posted basically tells XMMS to use the mplayer libraries to open a window for the avi and play it, just like winamp does (or any other video format for that matter).

I see you're using redhat. Did you get the rpm packages for Xine? If so, it should install flawlessly. Same with Mplayer(which is superior to xine).

Here is what I think is a port of winamp 3 for linux (mind you its in alpha stage, where I think it will stay)

http://software.deviantart.com/details/225/

I feel like I heard somewhere that the guy working on this was either fired from AOL or left on his own or something

RH is my server, im using fedora 2 because i was sick of windows and wanted something a little better looking than RH9 but i wanted to stick to RH not change to e.g. suse (which i tried and found it b*ll*x! because i really dislike KDE and i couldn work out how to switch to winamp )

but i got the source because i didn know i could get an rpm for it. where can i get a rpm for xine or Mplayer, which ever is better
