Command line RSS,PLS,M3U player.
 
I would love to wake up telling cron to play a mp3 that the name chages. I have done shoutcast but the ip address change all the time so call the stream is out the pls file is the same place. I love http://www.audiotreasure.com and there using m3u . and I am in to podcast but don't have a clue on RSS'
Some times I have X11 in gone running and some times its KDE and some times X11 is stopped.


I really want something that reads M3U, PLS, RSS, to play the files. so I can wake up to those play lists. not need to know if my gui is running.

thank you

Sounds like MPlayer would do what you want.

I don't know how to use mplayer.
 
Well I can't rely on the MP3 to he there How would I tell mplayer to read a RSS file. I have just been telling mplayer to play the stream or the mp3 files I don't understand How to to Mplayer to read a PLS M3U or a RSS file. thank you for your help

You would give the command:

Code:

mplayer -playlist filename.pls

wow! What about RSS ?
 
How would I get podcast file to play ex. http://leoville.tv/podcasts/jm.xml?

That makes it a lot easier to play a pls and m3u file.

PS I was thinking about telling corn to call the files one at a time and there about 22 mp3 per day. or one m3u :) and I was manually reading pls files. and typing them in to play a stream. it okay when the first stream is not full but some times I would be typing in about 5 different servers. thank you for your help.

There was an article in one of the magazines on using bash to update rss feeds and automatically download programs. I think there is a similar program(s) called "bashpodder". Google for "bash podder", I'm sure you'll find something.

bash podder were is the FC7 RPM.
 
I am not a expert if its not a in a RPM for redhat fedore 7 then I have no clue what to do. I looked for a RPM and look for podder in yum.

How do I compile code? or compile to a rpm?
