X11amp has changed its name to Xmms (X Multimedia
System), and a lot more than just the name is different. The homepage is now at http://www.xmms.org.
Compared to X11amp, the handling has changed
Xmms now offers a GTK-menu: by clicking on the frontend with the right mouse button
you are able to comfortably choose one of the many options that the program offers.
With the complicated handling of X11amp gone, the file browser now has changed to the standard GTK browser.
The sound output of the internet broadcast
is very good and it is seldomly interrupted due to an efficient pre-buffering.
However, the high cost of the phone connection prevents this fun from being enjoyable, as long as you
do not have a "cheap" internet connection in your company.
Xaudio is a shareware Mp3-player with a Motif frontend (everyone who does not own this commercial library has to use the static version). Since Motif has come into the years, the player looks, compared to others, slightly old. However, the handling is easy and the program can easily be configured via a preferences window:
Mp3blaster is not a player, only a frontend and just for a terminal (screenshot). Mp3blaster makes it possible to edit a playlist comfortably with text based menues. By means of a file browser you can select the desired tracks. This is a good choice for all system running without X-window, e.g. an old 386 used for playing mp3s only. This program is not created for the majority of Users but could be useful under special circumstances.
