I just tried the ogg audio preview with Nautilus 1.0.4/vorbis-tools-1.0rc1
and with esd.  It runs ogg123 on the file, as seen in a ps listing, but
the sound is not played.  The ogg123 call does not specify a device. For
it to work with esd, it seems that one needs to use specify the device
with "-d esd".

I'm not sure how mpg123 knows to connect to esd.  Nautilus does not
explicitly set the sound device/server for mpg123, but it works anyway.

Perhaps mpg123 automagically detects the sound server and ogg123 doesn't?
