Simple audio/mp3 player for small files

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a new voicemail system that attaches mp3s to emails and sends them to me. I'm using Thunderbird for IMAP email. When I try to open them with Rythmbox, I run into trouble because of the playlist. If I have music on pause, it won't even open the voicemail clip, it just starts playing the paused music. I'm looking for a second player that loads fast to play these voicemails. No other features are necessary. I'm guessing there may be an issue with the temporary file location. (HowTos)
