It almost sounds like your sound device is unable to deal with multiple sources at once. The c-e ; deal works fine for me now. Just highlight a given file and the key sequence opens up the m-player function; it prompts for a path but I just hit enter on that and away it goes. I do have to silence speech right away so I don't hear speech during the music. I do the c-e d q after the music starts and that shuts speech up while in that buffer. >-----Original Message----- >From: Kalyan Mukherjea [mailto:email@example.com] >Sent: Saturday, August 25, 2007 11:03 PM >To: firstname.lastname@example.org >Cc: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org >Subject: Re: Playing Music from Dired > >Hi List, >T.
