Note that Beep Media Player is not maintained anymore for 4 years.
Because of this, BMP is not a part of Debian anymore since the release
of Etch or shortly thereafter[1].  

This bug report ends up with me because I used to be the sponsor of the
maintainer which has also left the project.  I am afraid this bug will
not be fixed.  Note that the successor of BMP is considered to be
Audacious[2] which is still actively maintained and a part of Debian,
though it's probably slightly different than what you are used to.
Still, I suggest you try it out. :)

Kind regards,
