Console based sound player?


I need a console based media player. Here's what I need:

wav support
mp3 support
CLI only
able to loop forever

Any suggestions?

Yea, mpg123 definitely roxorz. I'd look for more to suggest, but there isn't a need based on its awsomeness.

Slack comes with alsautils, oggutils, flac, sox, amp, madplay, workbone, rexima, aumix, and cdparanoia and, I'm sure, other players, mixers, rippers, encoders, etc. It takes good care of the CLI audio junkie. Just poke about on your box. If you want to loop everything on your box for eternity, you might want to look into adding 'moosic' which is a CLI playlist/queue app - not a player, but plays players.

You can always just do a random play which will pick songs randomly and never stop playing til manually stopped..

That would work as well using random since it only has one file to choose from, it will keep playing that same file.

I need something that can run as a daemon, so I can run it from through ssh, and then ssh will die.

Both nohup and & don't cut it. mpg123 dies as soon as ssh terminates.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but try
Code:
ssh machinename "mpg123 -Z /path/to/filename >& /dev/null &"&
Still don't understand exactly what you're trying to do though.

Do they have a daemon mode? I'd like it if there were no output whatsoever, and it could be detached from the console.
