To enable ogg123 to use esd (of course if it has been compiled with esd

Thanks for the info.  This is great to know.

This isn't really the solution we want to use if we are hoping to make
things easy for people (esp. less technical users) though.  Ideally it
will just work for people, or possibly work once people configure it
through a dialog.

Can we expect that all GNOME users use esd?  If so, we could just use "-d
esd" in the call in Nautilus.  If we think some people may decide to turn

Yes I think this is a good solution, if ogg123 have been compiled with esd support (constraint is on libao).

off esd, we could have a preferences dialog which either allows people to
select to not use esd or else which gives users a short list of device
options to choose from for passing to ogg123.  Using esd should be the
default behavior if it is not reconfigured since this is the GNOME sound
server. Ideally in the future all of this will be done by communicating
with the control-center, but for now I guess it makes sense to put it in
Nautilus' preferences.  Or is there a simple way to poll the
control-center to find out if esd is being used?

Yes it is possible. The music view already do that
gnome_config_get_bool ("/sound/system/settings/start_esd=true")
