Linux.com: XMMS Plug-ins Round-up

(Other stories by Bastien Nocera)

"XMMS allows its capabilities to be enhanced via the use of plug-ins. An extensive list exists at XMMS' own website. But today, we're going to take a look at the best of them. All of these plug-ins, I've tested only on my Debian PowerPC machine, so all the "x86-only" plug-ins and other plug-ins not working correctly on my machine were discarded."

"XMMS stands for X11 MultiMedia System. It began its life as x11amp, a clone of Winamp from Nullsoft Software, and a closed source program. Due to the license the amp mp3 engine was under, and the copyright on the name, XMMS was a rewrite of x11amp using the GTK+ toolkit and the mpg123 MP3 engine. XMMS supports Winamp skins nativelly, as well as a range of plug-ins for all the different functions present in the program."
