Re: Playing mp3 files without a console/monitor/keyboard
Have you got a desktop / X setup/running on the server (or could run). you could ssh -X and run a gui mp3 player on your remote desktop, or if you run a full desktop on the server you could vnc in and then run something like audacious from there. If you use resumable sessions you can leave the vnc session and the session continues. I'll need to go and find the command that lets you start running something with ssh and then leave the session. I am about to setup a similar thing with my server in the garage (for when I am working out there)
MPD might also be a suitable choice for this?
