"The widgets xfce created and used by itself is a big pain in ass"

Maybe so, I dunno? But my point was that at least Xfmedia uses a relatively clear and clean interface, and not some all black and messy default skin of XMMS where you cannot even tell the buttons from the background... Cheesh, haven't the designers of such default GUIs/skins never heard anything about usability??

Beep media player is a version of Xmms and it spouses a brighter/easier on the eye theme. Many Xfce users like BMP.

Yeah, me too (although I usually use GNOME and not XFce). However, my problem with the Beep Media Player is - as I use a big 1600*1200 resolution - that the BMP windows are a bit too tiny and I can hardly see the buttons not to mention the song titles on its tiny windows. XMMS does have one small but nice feature (missing from BMP) of allowing to make its main window double sized that helps users of big screens like me. Other than that I certainly like BMP more than XMMS though.
