I actually tried xmms2 first, thinking it was just a newer version.
Unless I missed something, however, it's command-line only.  Besides,
if xmms is in the ports, shouldn't it be at least capable of working?

Oh, and I tried VLC; it didn't ask me to load any mp3 files---it just
jumped straight to the first mp3 in the first directory under my mp3
directory that it found, and started playing.  I also tried itunes,
but for some reason that I don't remember (cancer #1 again), I rejected
it.  There was another one, I think---something-audio (Macaudio,
perhaps?) that also failed to recognize any m3u files; same for winamp
(which truly amazed me, as it's always supported m3u files).....

So far, xmms (if it worked) is my #1 choice.

Right now, though, I'm also trying to get a working newsreader;  I tried
the one everyone recommends (Unison), but it quit, and e-mail to their
help address bounce and calls to their phone number gets a disconnected
message.  Any good ones in MacPorts?
