Music without GUI
 
Hola,
this is my first post in this awesome forum, i wish that i collect the most bebefits from here.
I need to use some Music software like winamp, but i don't have any GUI in my server, only the black screen.
I need to make some internal sound system in my building, so i need that software to manage my playlist in 24 hours around the day.
Thanks in advance.

music, video, web, email and more without gui (X)
 
Check out inx linux.
It is a live CD running without X.
I believe they use mplayer for sound.

I'm sure you will learn many more things from this CD.

If it's for commercial purposes and you're using copyrighted music, you might need to pay royalties. RIAA?

Otherwise it depends on what your needs are.

$ while true; do mplayer ./*.wav; done

$ while true; do mplayer cdda:// ; done

sub in your player of choice. aplay / play / mplayer / and many others.

If you want a playlist?

$ find . -iname '*.wav*' > playlist.txt
$ while true; do cat playlist.txt | while read INPUT; do mplayer $INPUT; done; done

And probably other options depending on if you want to change your playlist on the fly or other things.

I'm using mp3blaster for cli music. It supports playlists, file browsing, etc.

Have you considered setting up a media server such as MediaTomb: http://mediatomb.cc/?

Try alsamixer program, check that all needed channels are unmuted and set to 100%.

Really thanks my friend, but i need to ask you is the output port will be my audio card ??? ;)

10110111 04-24-2010 07:06 AM

Emm... what do you mean? alsamixer will only work with audio card output channels.

Of course it's a terminal app. Have you even tried it?

Maybe a little clarity might help.

First:
Make sure your sound device is supported in a base installation of the "un-mentioned" flavor of Linux your server is running. It is possible you need to to compile modules to get it running. The command: lspci -vv may help determine the sound device(s) installed.

To give a little more direction to what has already been suggested:
Make sure alsa-utils is installed, when installing with a package manager...other necessary packages like alsa-base will be installed. After installation, run command: alsamixer to configure channels. In some instances as is with my Audigy 2ZS audio card, some channels need to be enabled but muted for sound to come through, so playing with mute on/off is often required. Once you have sound after setting up alsamixer, run command as root or sudo: alsactl store to save the new settings.
