Lightweight, command Line music player for Linux1 min read

To start out, I used this idea. I wrapped this method up into an init script to get it working at startup and shutdown like this.

So, the first thing you’d need to do is install mplayer.

Then, you’d need to have a simple init script to run when the machine starts up.

and paste something like this in.

You’ll want to replace the /home/rubylaser with your username. Then set the script up to be executable.

Then, set it up to be run at startup and shutdown.

The 99 has it startup late in the boot process, otherwise my music ended up sounded like it was playing back at a slower rate than it should be. You can start and stop the player from the command line at any time too.

I hope this can help you in some way.

Here is the post that I responded to.
