I have been using Ubuntu 13.04 for a while now, and after solving all my "windows" problems and concernes, I'm stuck with some interesting (or is it?) problem. Namely, every application I've tried freezes when playing mp3 files across my home network. The problem is same on every player (VLC, SMplayer, Audicious..), the first song on the list plays and after that it should skip on next song, but it stops to respond and continue to hang.

Is it possible that no player under Ubuntu is capable streaming multimedia across the network?
