A. Linux desktop offers lots of multimedia program for audio and video experience.
Beep Media Player
The Beep Media Player (BMP) is a free audio player, based on the XMMS multimedia player. I recommend beep media player for playing mp3. BMP looks like Winamp and even supports Winamp and XMMS skins. BMP supports most of the audio file formats.

VLC media player
Use VLC media player to play DVD/VCD and other formats. It is a highly portable multimedia player, encoder, and streamer supporting many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It is able to stream over networks and to transcode multimedia files and save them into various different formats.
