    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?

    Cool, thanks. My understanding is that mpg123 is non-free (in that you can't distribute the code) whereas mpg321 is the opensource version.

    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".

    One more request ...
    It's not really specific to the wiki, but a short explanation of "playlist" would be nice.

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PlayMusicFromCommandLine

    thanx guys for feedback

    will look at these other softwares i have not encountered previously

    moc mpg321 etc and see how they compare



    ===================

    Vasa

    As regards creating a playlist

    go into your Music folder right-click on any music file OR folders

    /copy/ paste into a text editor & save as playlist.m3u

    then play that playlist
    Code:
     nvlc playlist.m3u
    Code:
     mplayer playlist.m3u
    also you can add internet radio stations like ie
    Code:
    http://207.200.96.228:8078/

    all you need to do from now on is to modify playlist when you wish to and start in same way each time



    my current one looks thus

    wow moc is excellent in its layout will add it straightaway thanx for the info

    not better [sound much muted compared to nvlc/mplayer but certainly another route that can be used/ is there a way to change the blue-grey color or is it the only one?

    colors can really enhance a program nvlc.png
