no sound with Pulse-audio and xmms

I just recently installed pulse-audio and xmms stopped playing music, mplayer and xine are still fine but xmms has stopped, when i try to play a file it tells me to check weather my sound card is configured and is another program blocking the sound device. I tried to change the output plug-in but pulse isn't there and it doesn't seem to work with any of the others, I've had a google and nothing turned up so I removed pulse for the time being until I can figure something out. any ideas? any helps always appreciated

Try using 'esd' as the output plugin in xmms.

cool, I reinstalled the pulse audio plug-in and xmms works again now with the esd plug-in, I guess I must have missed that one when I was trying them earlier. Thanks
