Meanwhile, Radionomy intends to offer Winamp’s media player just as it is today — with access to those 60,000 stations, but also playback ability for 60 audio and video formats; 6,000 add-ons like skins and plug-ins; and availability in 16 languages.

Nah but it can be used for that task if nothing else works. Speaking of such stuff....i remembered KMPlayer. If you need also audio convertion i guess JetAudio works too otherwise it is too much bulky.

Code:
find "My Music" -exec mplayer -shuffle {} +
MPlayer uses even less resources than mpg321, and outputs to every known device/daemon there is. I personally use MPD on my file server, but MPlayer is not a bad option.

A lot of good CLI options eliminate the need for powerful systems and bloat (less glitches) I like randomplay as well:
Quote:
Randomplay plays your music collection (or execute any arbitrary commands on
any arbitrary filetypes) in random order, remembering songs played across
sessions. It also has many features to make command-line music playing more
convenient, including recursive regexp searching for tracks and the ability to
specify a certain number of tracks, bytes, or minutes to play. Randomplay
will also generate a list of music files to be loaded onto a portable music
player device. It includes a 'random weighting' feature, so your favorite
songs are more likely to come up in the random shuffle.

Randomplay is a convenient tool for the user who does everything in an xterm
window or console and is constantly devising complex find/grep/sed command
lines to play just the right set of songs.

vlc? On windows. Mplayer? for videos, and for listening to one song at a time.

I usually start a screen session with cmus and alsamixer. Then I often detach and let it run in the background.

EDIT: mplayer also produces interesting results when run without an X session... though it actually resembles the original clip!

I like using tty1 for one (player) and 2 for the other, sometimes 3 for battery checks. And, whatever?

Off topic:

nice, http://resources.openmpt.org/modfaq/3-8.html will this work on the IIe I'm wondering? I use the VGA output to my projector and it displays
Code:
Apple ][
it cost me $2.00 at a rummage but only had the keyboard, motherboard, three cards: i/o controller, serial interface, "keyboard end"\micro-sci and all its chips. I assume I need a floppy drive to do anything but have not tried?

Just got it out the closet booted found: http://youtu.be/e8KdaFNhmLw
http://youtu.be/e8KdaFNhmLw nothing happens on soft reset but some code flashes by then back to "Apple ][" so I tried closed apple+control+reset and get some "graphics" (sideways venetian blinds) then:
Code:
RAM:
no appertain prompt tho...
I may need to start a retro question in hardware (most will be like "Why ask here?") if I can't get past "Apple ][" and "RAM:" or do I just need eBay?

YAY http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_II_graphics control+reset got me to Basic now to find if any other programs\commands exist?
