Loading only one file still does not work as well. The same file can be
used with amarok (which I don't dare to use normally because amarok is
waay too buggy).

I own all files, I have read and write access to them.

I tried all possible audio playing plugins:
OSS driver
Esound Output
Disk Writer

These are all marked as 1.2.10.

Thanks for all the suggestions and attention anyway...

At the moment I'm also taking suggestions on other mp3 players and
decent web radio being broadcasted in Real format :-|

Just tried to get mpd to work and failed...


I had this problem with Ubuntu.  XMMS would play ok if started as root but not myself.
do a ps -aux and make sure there are no processes running that shouldn't be  (or have hung).
In my case it was Evolution crashing that had not freed up the audio hardware/mixer/whatever so XMMS could use it.

Oh yeah ... Amarok..Buggy??  Best media player on ANY platform that i have ever used.  Feel very smug about this piece of Free Software.
