XMMS is an open source multimedia player for Linux. The player was modeled after Nullsoft's Winamp.

The multimedia player is primarily used for audio playback and supports several audio formats, including MP3, MOD, and WAV. The player's most prominent feature is its ability to be customized. You can install plugins to support more audio and video formats and enhance the audio output. The player's interface can also be changed, as there are many skins available for download on the XMMS website.

XMMS is mostly used by people looking to customize their audio player, whether it be through installing plugins or interface skins. However, the player doesn't include many capabilities and looks dated. But if you are a Linux user looking for a customizable multimedia player, XMMS is a solid choice.
