XMMS and Rhythmbox work fine for mp3 for me. I think Rhythmbox installs 
as default and is listed as 'Music Player'.

My problem is most of my music is in Apple's aac format, and I can't 
seem to find a way to play them in Unbuntu at all. It is very annoying, 
I can't seem to make faad2 build either so I can't even build the xmms 
aac module manually.

Anyone know if there will there be aac/m4a support coming to Ubuntu 
soon? Or any way to get it?
