XMMS is the X Multimedia System. It is used to play audio and other kinds of media files. By default XMMS can play MPEG audio, Ogg Vorbis, RIFF wav, most module formats and a few other formats. XMMS can be extended through plugins to play a number of other audio and video formats.

XMMS’ display is almost the same with Winamp ver. 2.x in Windows. A lot of Linux Distro put xmms as a default package. You can run it through Application > Sound & Video > XMMS or through run command, Alt-F2, then type xmms.
