The problem is going to be with Gstreamer, no Quod Libet.  I think that Gstreamer might be a better desion the Xine to use as Xubuntu media backend, just becuase it is modular, and from what I can tell, it uses less processing power, and uses less memory.

This is do to the fact that Xubuntu is ment for slower computers, but that does not mean that you can't have a full featured audio player.  I think that Quod Libet (, would fill the void for Xubuntu.  A litte about Quod Libet, it is written in Python, and the UI is desgined after iTunes/RhythmBox.  The best part about it, is that it is a low memory app. Uses around 50mb of memory as compared to the 150mb that Xfmedia uses.  I ask the developers to take a look at Quod Libet.
