Yes I have mpg321(and mpg123), ogg123 and mplayer running on my system without 
any problems.
Usually I use them from commandline or with Cplay.

But its like EMMS is looking for some system information somewhere it
cant find. That I have the excact same error with so many versions of EMMS
and types of configurations makes my guess that EMMS has some system
dependency which is not fulfilled on my system.

By the way, I have mpg123.el running in my Emacs. But it dosnt support
all I need ex streams.
