Don't know if there is such a solution. Arts is a so called Sound-Server, wich mixes different sound streams into one that is send to the dsp-Device. This can be created via ALSA, which only is a driver package for various sound cards. A solution for the problem could be artsdsp, which should be installed together with arts. It makes the program run with artsdsp think that it has access to /dev/dsp, but really it sends the sound to arts. AFAIK it works with most programs.
