I use mpd here without any problems. Actually its mpd + iceast because I
stream it from another machine to my laptop running dwm.

{ MODKEY, XK_p, spawn, "sh ~/misc/scripts/" }, \
{ MODKEY, XK_q, spawn, "exec pkill ogg123" }, \
{ MODKEY, XK_period, spawn, "exec mpc next" }, \
{ MODKEY, XK_comma, spawn, "exec mpc prev" }, \

These are my keyboard shortcuts. is a script i wrote that
runs ogg123 to connect to the streaming ogg that icecast uses.
