Re: How do Archers play their music?

The only thing mplayer doesn't do for me is playing dvd's which are stored in directories. Do you guys have an idea how to do that?

Re: How do Archers play their music?

Until Amarok2 was released, I used Amarok 1.4.
Because version 2 extremly sucks, I'm now using beep-media-player (based on xmms).

Re: How do Archers play their music?

I've been using mocp recently, and it's not too bad.  You jsut have to have organized your music into some coherent directory structure if you ever intend to keep track of it lol  I feel sorry for mocp users who haven't.

Re: How do Archers play their music?

I use a short haskell command-line utility I wrote that lets me tab complete artist/album names to queue/play them in with mpd.  I use it with a scratchpad (popup terminal) in XMonad.  It's pretty handy.

on the off chance that anyone cares, here it is...

not trying to go off-topic here but how can i use this? i'm not 100% familiar with compiling/running my own utilities for xmonad.
P.S. any change of seeing your xmonad.hs, too? :}

on topic: currently use mpd for control, ncmpcpp for viewing and two personal scripts for playing, piping, etc. still experimenting for that perfect balance.

I think clementine is THE music-app for KDE. It integrates so well and just does its job. So nice. Never found a better player. even on gnome :3

Re: How do Archers play their music?

I don't tend to listen to downloaded mp3 files. Rather, I listen to streaming online radio, particularly BBC Radio 3, CBC Radio 2, NPR, BBC World, a few others. I simply use cvlc from the command line and I have a few aliases set up in my .bashrc so that "play_bbc" for instance starts playing Radio 3. Nice, easy, fast and doesn't get in your face, also the terminal messages from vlc are really useful if the streaming has a problem...

Theres a fair bit of customization in there, so it might not be readily apparent what I've done.  I didn't really add many comments either hmm  Feel free to email me if you need any explanations.

As for the mpd app, you can compile it like any other haskell file(ex. ghc -O2 --make something.hs), but you'll need both the haskeline and libmpd libraries for haskell.  You can get them with cabal-install pretty easily.  Also, if you're not aware of it, pimpd is a really nice command line mpd interface written in Perl (by a fellow arch user).  It's way more feature-filled than my little haskell thing, and you wouldn't have to mess with libraries and could just install it from the AUR.  I don't think it has tab completion, which is the only reason I use mine instead.

Re: How do Archers play their music?

Hey, thanks a lot for the information. I installed the libraries and will continue experimenting with this and other similar ventures. Currently I've changed my focus from mpd to an mplayer daemon (idea taken from that very same archer who made pimpd) but want something a little more simple and small so I'll experiment with this as well. If I run into any problems with your file or snippet from the xmonad.hs I'll email you. Thanks again, I appreciate it.

I use mocp, I find mpd's way of handling a music collection intimidating. Links really?

Re: How do Archers play their music?

I use mplayer for music, on the grounds that it's already installed for video, and seems to cope well with lots of file formats.

The following is aliased to 'play', so I can just cd into an album directory and get listening:

mplayer -playlist <(find "$PWD" -type f | sort -n)

I cheat when it comes to keeping stuff organised: iTunes on my Mac does the job for me, and its Music folder is rsync'd to the machine running Arch once a week.

Re: How do Archers play their music?

Well, I had been using mpd + ncmpcpp on my laptop for a while, but those flac files were taking up more and more space.
So, I transferred it all to my OpenBSD machine and I stream from there using mpd's httpd output.
I simply have a keybind on the laptop to run "mplayer http://myipaddress:8000/mpd.ogg"
For control, I ssh into the box and use npmpc. There's probably a better method, but I am not inconvenienced enough to spend effort on discovering it.

I've been thinking about doing something like this -- thanks for the tip smile

Re: How do Archers play their music?

If vlc had better skins I would use it for music as well as video. The problems with the skins is not that they look bad in fact most of them are pretty good but they seem to lack basic functionality, so mpd for music it is smile
