    Please add moc! It's much better choice for playing music from the terminal.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install moc
    mocd

    Some comments:

    1. The first section is specific to ubuntu - xubuntu, kubuntu, lubuntu users will not have nautilus installed. Its also possible that installing nautilus-terminal will also install nautilus (unable to verify) which might cause problems on some (ie. xubuntu). Perhaps specifying that these instructions are for ubuntu only or adding similar instructions for the other spins.

    2. In addition to sox, I would also add mpg123/mpg321. The nice aspect of this player is that:
    Code:
    mpg321 -Zz ~/Music/*.mp3
    ...will repeat-random play all files that match that pattern. Ctrl-C to skip to next tune, Ctrl-Z to pause, fg to un-pause and 2 Ctrl-Z in quick succession to quit. Unfortunately, it lacks some other abilities like previous, forward/backward x frames, etc, but is a quick, small player. It can also stream online radio via something like:
    Code:
    mpg321 -vC http://72.232.2.83:80
    ...(dubstep radio station in the example above)

    3. And as suggested by sysaxed, there are also ncurses-based music players. They are lighter than their graphical cousins, but offer more control and functionality than just the command-line utilities. If you choose to mention them, in addition to moc, you could add cmus, mp3blaster, cplay. I'm not sure about moc or mp3blaster, but both cmus and cplay have remote control utilities that you could assign to shortcut keys and be able to manage the playlists in that manner.

    If you add -C parameter to mpg123 then you're able to use all these features you mentioned. Try it.
    Code:
    mpg123 -ZzC ~/Music/*.mp3
    now if you press "h" button you'll get all possible options. Some of those are:
    [f] next track
    [d] previous track
    [:] fast forward
    [;] fast rewind


    By the way, what is the difference between mpg123 and mpg321?

    First, nice wiki!
    Code:
    mplayer *
    is something even I can do.

    I agree that the section mentioned by Toz be modified to make it more "agnostic".
