XMMS is an open source media player similar to WinAMP. It supports most common audio formats, and also plays some videos.


Do you know more about the compatibility of XMMS? Please add it here

When streaming Ogg/vorbis to xmms via http the url needs to end in ".ogg". This could be done by providing a filename with the sout line, something like this:

vlc --sout http/ogg:

As a temporary hack you could append "?.ogg" to the url you give xmms.

XMMS supports es, ps and mpeg1 muxers with mpga audio out of the box. The ts muxer gives strange audio in xmms.
