Best MP3 Player on Gnome


Since RedHat's built in player won't play the mp3 format anymore - what is the best mp3 player available for use on Gnome?

You just need to go download mpg123, that's all.

Download it from the most popular mp3 player xmms at: http://havardk.xmms.org/dist/xmms-1.2.7-rh8-rh9-rpm/

Dude, I already pretty much said the same thing. Don't really need it said twice, or do we..

And its not the Redhat plugin, its called mpg123 which isn't inlcuded by default anymore with Redhat to be able to play mp3's.

exactly what i'm saying is we don't need echo's. If your going to basically give the same solution that someone else gives, what's the point? I don't go around echo'ing others, unless there is something else I want to add on top of theirs, but he didn't provide anything else new that I didn't a couple of hours prior.

And if you read my reply to his, the only reason I actually replied was he said the same thing I already did but I was correcting him as he called it a Redhat plugin, which it isn't.

Also may I remind you to bring these sort of topics up in private by emailing me or the site admin if you have any problems, if not, then move on to the next post, there's no need to start calling others names, etc.

And to answer the question...

I think XMMS is better for listening to mp3's than noatun, or mplayer. It's simple. You could just play mp3's from the command line. That would be fun.

I apologize to all. I am new to linux and I was tired after struggling with some problems.

It is just that I see a lot of unresolved issues when I do a search for answers to problems that I am having, My reasoning at the time is that it might make people shy of answering if they are going to get shot down (even if is an echo).

Peace to all
