Okay, this is weird. It's not happening today. It was happening
yesterday with mp3 files, but I didn't try any others (not sure I have
any except a bunch of mp3s and one wav file).
Another weird: when I hover my cursor over the one .wav files I have
on this machine, it plays it - if I double click it, I get two
mplayers playing it (out of sync - really weird!) and the error (but
this makes sense).
In fact, today I can connect my Windows VM to the sound device, no problem.
I would say "never mind" but there is one more strange thing: when I
right click on a sound file and try to get the properties, I get an
error window that says: "Couldn't load the 'Properties dialog'
interface. Make sure that Totem is properly installed." Then I get
another window that says: "Creating Properties window. You can stop
this operation by clicking cancel." When I click the "Ok" button in
the first error window, the second one goes away and a properties
dialog comes up. BUT I can't access the audio properties of the file
- they're blank (probably a totem thing).
This is moving OT since it is clearly not a CentOS problem but a Gnome
problem, so I'll pursue it there, but does anyone else have an idea of
what's going on here?

1) I should be able to choose my favorite player and have it work
(mplayer does just fine)
2) While I might try out xmms, that shouldn't be the solution.
Shoulding a lot, here, aren't I?
Do I have to reinstall totem to get nautilus to read the audio file
properties properly? That seems a little too interconnected for
packages that ought to be independent (see? I can say "ought to"
instead of "should," too :-).
