I don't understand you. I mean the 'mplayer' use the same devices like
'xmms' (/dev/dsp or/and /dev/audio)
and 'xmms' have NOT problem. Also 'mplayer' have not problem like root.
The problem is 'mplayer' like user.
But I don't understand why, because 'xmms' like user work OK.
I guest that there are some where some problems of permissions, but
