Is there any need for this to be in the client?

i.e. was/is this used to play mp3s in sync with demos (appears not to be the case - mp3s don't start reliably, every mp3/mvd I've seen has a 'tone' period before the demo is meant to start) or is there an actual practical use for it, other than playing music or displaying the name of the track on the screen somewhere?

It seems like something that can be dropped...

I think that functionality also could lead to h4x explitoing and can be replaced by background player
imo it can be dropped

Agreed - it's been disabled in qcon, so it seems like just removing it makes sense at this point. It would get rid of a lot of code that I have no way of testing or maintaining.

XMMS1 with ezquake is awsome but a bit legacy :-)

Still works.. :-D

But whatever, just remove it

(The scrolling text on the screen is really there...)

Never understood people listening to music in Quake. Its annoying and you miss game sounds.

Kill it as far as i'm concerned.

I like it between games and in prolonged prewars, so I don´t have to alt-tab. Also nice to impress people with your supreme taste in music by the click of a button.
