ogg123 -d alsa is giving me this error message:

on non-stereo files.  It does work on stereo files.
The non-stereo files are valid; previous versions of
ogg123 worked, and alsaplayer works on them now.

I will send you a copy of a file on which this fails
if you ask.  These files are too long to include in this message.

If this occurs right at the beginning of the file then we only need a short sample. Install mp3splt and run:

oggsplt sadi-moma.ogg 0.0 0.2

This will extract the first 2 seconds to a new file, which is probably small enough to post here.

I tried ogg123 on my own YeeLoong with some mono ogg file and that played without a problem.
