Ncurses based audio player with support for recursive search and ratin

I have been looking for a ncurses based (lightweight) music player. I tried moc and it is awesome. However, two features (which I need) it lacks are:
1. Recursive search.
2. Rating.

It presently searches only in the present director and does not do a recursive search which makes it difficult to search for a song.

Also, rating a song is a nice way to have a list of songs which you love and play them all together when you are in no mood to go through all the songs.

It would be great if someone can recommend another ncurses based player with these (recursive search and rating) features.

Re: Ncurses based audio player with support for recursive search and ratin

I don't believe there is any ncurses media player with a rating feature... If my assumption is correct you may just have to settle with making playlists based on the criteria of your subjective ratings. I use Ncmpcpp paired with mpd and it has a "regex" search function that I believe is recursive, as I can find any song, album, artist, etc as long as it's tagged properly.

Re: Ncurses based audio player with support for recursive search and ratin

I have a little convuluted way of doing this, i use a script called prep_mp - or similar,
and have two directories under my mp3-main-directory, mp3_listen and mp3_sorted.

I usually just mv files over to the listen one when i hear one i like.

And i use the script, to play the files in the specified directory, recursively, in random, with mplayer.

Might be too simple for what you need, but that is a tip atleast : )

Re: Ncurses based audio player with support for recursive search and ratin

flexculpa - would mpd+ncmpcpp be heavier/consume more memory than moc?

PReP - that was simply wonderful!! but as you said. I should not say it is simple, but rather we tend to look for simpler option, e.g., install an app smile

Well if I look at the output from "htop" ncmpcpp is only using 0.4% of my memory in my netbook and the mpd daemon is only using about 4.5% of my cpu and less than 3% of system memory.

I got prep_mp up in the aur anyways, but i should really work a bit more on it
any constructive critizism is always appreciated if anyone finds it usefull : )

Hopefully you find something that fits your personal usecase otherwise smile

That sounds nice. Would need to take time out and set it up..
