[Om2008.9] Using Freerunner as a digital audio player

Hi folks,
yesterday I tried to use qtopia-phone-x11-mediaplayer and some ogg/mp3 
files to transform the FR into a digital audio player.

I have encountered 3 software problems :

1. audio quality is bad (whereas it is good with Debian+Sonata/Mpd, so 
definitively not a hardware problem here) : is there a way to tune some 
parameters ?

2. external speakers still work after headphones being plugged : is 
there an alsa subtlety here ? (it switches automatically with Debian)

3. software relies upon tags, which I do not use at all. I have a 
precise filesystem scheme and no need of tag-based players trying to 
sort my music. Is there a way of telling the thing to stop trying to be 
smart ? I need a dumb soft here ;)

qtopia-phone-x11-mediaplayer seems totally usable with fingers, and 
that's the big motivation for me to use it.

Thanks in advance,
