MPlayer was a good suggestion. I've been using it for days now without
a hitch. I normally just think of it as a movie player, but it seems
quite good at playing ogg streams too. It's a slightly larger and more
complicated program than I would prefer for the simple task of playing
ogg streams. I guess I'd just rather ogg123 work right. But
nonetheless, mplayer seems quite reliable. It displays two percentages
that I don't entirely understand. The first starts at 0, the second at
around 15%. I'm sure the second is some kind of buffer. It slowly
dropped from 15 to 0 over a day or so, but then the first number started
climbing. But after several days, the first number is only at 2%. I
wonder what will happen when it reaches 100%, but at this rate it will
take a couple months for it to reach it.
