Re: Is there a command line music player?

I'd suggest mp3blaster. Somaplayer is also good, and I'm thinking to write a PKGBUILD for the suite.

Another great thing is indeed mpd. Client-server architecture, easy to set-up and support for CLI, TUI and GUI. Furthermore, since every UI is client side, after you chose the playlist you can kill it without any problem, the music will go on, and opening another UI (local or remote) will take you to the current playlist... simply great wink

Re: Is there a command line music player?

yeah, mpd seems a good player.
But I suddently find that my sound card doesn't work!
I don't know why. It worked well before I installed fvwm.
And I'm sure I have alsa runned.

Re: Is there a command line music player?

in what way does it not work... some card you need to resample the sound

e.g if its an intel8x0 bsaed card the set the sample rate to 48000
otherwise everythinf sound too fast and too high

Re: Is there a command line music player?

dull question but have you edited /etc/mpd.conf?

and alsa works fine for you normally?

please dont think I'm trying to teach you to suck eggs, sometimes we all forget the straightforward things

there's a guide on the wiki to setting it up

Re: Is there a command line music player?

I didn't modified my modprob.conf file, but suddently it can't make any sound while everythings seems normal - xmms can play, but no sound.

Now I have fixed the problem by alsaconf.
Before I regenerate the modprob.conf file I backup the old one.
Then I diff the two file, they're the same.
So strange.

I look up my problems in the wiki sometimes.
But I seems a little difficult to me since i'm a linux newbie and a non-english-speaker.

Thank you for your help. Now I can listen to the music with mpd:)
