I would pick xmms2. Then it will automatic select the rest.

No no no, xmms2 is not an easy to use player.

I would say it's more like mpd than xmms.

XMMS is a dead project and thus it is removed from the Ubuntu repositories.

If you really want to use it, download the .deb file here:

Audacious is "the new xmms", I don't like it as much as I liked xmms, but it's still good.

My mistake, I don't use XMMS, but since it was the only thing available, I thought XMMS2 was a newer version of XMMS. I use Exaile myself.

I see how people get confused :p

I use exaile myself (or mpd when I'm in the mood).

@eru777:

Would Exaile be an option?

- I tried XMMS long time ago, and it sucks imo.
