COMMANDLINE MP3 PLAYER


Sunday is a day to chill-out and listen to a sheer endless stream of music.
Here is a neat little trick for you commandline-lovers that really pays off !
To play ALL mp3´s on your computer in random order:

CODE
$ mpg123  -Z  --list  <(locate "*.mp3")


Note: the special characters: -- < " * . " they all have to be there !
To stop playing: Ctrl+c ( 2x )

Sure you can play just one song too:

CODE
$ mpg123  /home/bruno/music/dylan/To_Ramona.mp3


For more options see ¨man mpg¨

So now you can listen to some music while tweaking your computer !
Have a nice sunday !


Bruno


PS: A commandline mp3 player uses no GUI thus is extremely easy on systemresources !
