Listen to Audio CD From Command Line with mpg123


Is it possible to listen to an audio CD with mpg123?

If not, how can I listen to an audio cd from the terminal only?

Thanks!

mpg123 is an mp3 decoder, not a cd player. But you can play cds with mplayer. Just use the following:

mplayer cdda:// /dev/cdrom

You can add a track number or range after the // (ex: cdda://1-5), if you want.

cdcd is another fairly nice console cd player with a simple command-entry interface.
