I have released a new version of mp3blaster, version 2.0b5. Mp3blaster
is an interactive text-based program that plays mp3 audio files. It is
one of the very few mp3 players for the text console that allows full
interactive control during playback. One of its key features is the
ability to compose a very flexible playlist.

This new version fixes a bug in the decoding library that made the program
crash on some mp3 formats (notably mp3 files with a sampling frequency of
48Khz).  This version also contains several new features, the most
important being the built-in mixer support and improved command-line

You can download mp3blaster from these places:
