I have a very strange problem with xmms. It doesn't play audio cds (cda files) while it can easily be done with totem or rhytmbox. As I say it doesn't play, it's not really true - the slider goes on but there is no sound. However, I can hear music with same settings when playing with xmms mp3 or ogg files. I tried deleting .xmms folder (maybe I have made some stupid settings) but it didn't help,then checked what plugins are enabled (read cd was enabled) but everything seems ok.
It's not really a big problem because I can also use totem and other players but I prefer listening with xmms due its compact frontend. And also I am very curious about this strange xmms behaviour.
Thanks for explanation, liquidtenmillion.
It could happen because I've recompiled my 2.6 kernel with scsi-cdrom support recently. So my cdrom became /dev/sdc from /dev/hdc. Maybe that's why analog mode doesn't work anymore.
My thanks to Koen Plessers for pointing me in the right direction (to the XMMS prefs) following a kernel recompile and subsequent weirdness from XMMS. It had automatically set the output plugin to be OSS when of course it should have been ALSA.
After changing that and a couple of output settings in Kmix that was me playing MP3s with XMMS once again.
