good (music) media player

Whats a good music player for linux? On windows I would use musicmatch... I'd like something with the library of all ur songs and you could just add em to the playlist from there.

I got that, it came with slack, but... you can prob. change the skin, but all the buttons are soo small, and I don't think you can make a music library can you?

Oh, I just rememberd it dosn't work for some reason too lol. When I hit play it freezes and I have to kill it.

ok, n/m I just got it to work, and found out how to change the skin (but I dunno where to get others). But still anything about a library? maybe a plugin or something?

Rightclick on the window pick options -> Preferences
In there you'll see a drop down box with Output Plugin as it's heading.
Try different plugins, one of them will work

There are a lot of skins, I use XMMS too.
