[maemo-users] Small Memory Footprint Ogg Player for Maemo4 (N810)

I run navit on the N810 in my car and want to play ogg songs with the n810 in 

Unfortunately, the song playing gets interrupted from time to time, but this 
is annoying. I am not entirely sure, if the processing power of the N810 does 
not support to run both an navit map update and ogg decoding, though since 
mplayer consumes below 10% I could imagine that memory is the problem:

 1688 user     RW     25260  1662  7.4 19.8 mplayer

I want to try if a player with a smaller memory footprint, since about 8 MB of 
swap space are in use:

~ $ cat /proc/meminfo

MemFree:          1872 kB

Does anybody have a suggestion for a small footprint oggplayer (would be nice 
if it supports playlists)?

Does anybody have other ideas for memory saving on the N810?
