CMus

CMus

C* Music Player (CMus) is a modular and very configurable ncurses-based audio player.

It has some interesting features such as a configurable colour scheme, mp3 and ogg streaming. It can be controlled with a UNIX socket, filters, album/artists sorting and a vi-like configuration interface.

It also features background playlist loading and a metadata cache make loading files very fast, as well as playqueue, playlist filters and a directory browser. Three playlist views are available: artist/album/track, shuffle list, and sorted list. There are also three play modes: all, artist, album.
