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 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.

You would give the command:


mplayer -playlist filename.pls

wow! What about RSS ?
How would I get podcast file to play ex.

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?
