This is about my friend Arjun (http://www.blogger.com/profile/12608024685176859481) who is another author to this blog. He inspired me towards command line.
When we friends were discussing about mp3 players like winamp, windows media player he shocked all of us by telling he used/uses mpg123 from command line to play his mp3 songs
Do you wish to play mp3 from command line like him? Read further if you have ubuntu or fedora( if you are an Arch user, you are most probably a geek and most probably a linux guru and I won't be teaching you how to do "sudo pacman -S mpg123" from command line)
So, to install this commandline mp3 player in Ubuntu
sudo aptitude install mpg123
If you have Fedora, then in Fedora commandline (remove sudo from command, if you are a super user)
sudo yum install mpg321
To play a single mp3 song from command line
mpg123 <your mp3 file >
To play multiple mp3 songs
mpg123 <mp3 1> <mp3 2> ...
To play a mp3 URL
mpg123 <url of the mp3 >
To know more about mpg123, use man mpg123 from commandline
