I heartily recommend MOC (music on console) (once it's installed, the command to start it is 'mocp', though, not 'moc', just to confuse everyone). It's easy to use but with some nice features (play queue, nice keyboard controls) - and you can even have it run when the terminal's not actually open, which is cool.

Works fine for me; what filetype(s) are you trying to play? Have you tried more than one audio filetype to see which ones will work (if any)?

Re: What media player do you use?

a lil radio script (changed to use mpv for playback), stolen from pidsley http://linuxbbq.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?f … dio#p21911

#!/bin/bash

STREAM_FILE=~/bin/radiolist

[[ ! -f "$STREAM_FILE" ]] && echo "$STREAM_FILE does not exist" && exit 1

array=( $(cat "$STREAM_FILE") )

select opt in "${array[@]}"; do
    [[ $1 =~ ^-r ]] && streamripper "$opt" &
    # mpg123 -b 2000 -@ "$opt"
    mpv --load-unsafe-playlists "$opt" --msglevel=cplayer=no:ffmpeg/audio=no:ffmpeg/demuxer=no:ffmpeg/video=no:ad=no --no-video
    # --cache=1000
    break
done

where ~/bin/radiolist is a lits of streams (m3u, pls or direct stream are known to work), example;

http://www.jazzradio.net/docs/stream/jazzradio.pls

I tried testing on a simple mp3.

Hm. Mp3s are working fine for me. Maybe try installing some of the gstreamer plugins, i.e. gstreamer0.10-plugins-good, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, and gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly? I recall I had to install these to convert files to mp3, so maybe they're needed for mp3 playback too...

Edit: should have asked this first: can you play mp3s with other players? If yes, the above *might* not apply. But I'm not sure...

Try cmus; it's even more minimal than mocp, and doesn't have as many plugin dependencies. If you want really minimal, use mpg123. see "man mpg123" for how to enable the keyboard controls.

This.  I believe I mentioned that in the "Remove Pulseaudio" thread.

Re: What media player do you use?

@OP:  Did you by any chance install moc-ffmpeg-plugin when you installed moc, or did you just install the player?  I remember the plugin package actually causes trouble in Wheezy...moc works just fine without it.

If you mean me, then yes I had the ffmeg-plugins added also. Removed and moc works like a charm (once I figured our some of the commands)

Mocp for audio
Vlc for video

You have no idea how long I searched in vain for the right audio-player!!!!!!!!!! Fortunately I have moc now.

Re: What media player do you use?

VLC seems to handle just about every media - audio or video. Sometimes use Banshee for an audio player with headphones while reading.

Re: What media player do you use?

Exaile, as of late. Particularly because I like Python and apps written in it. May have to jump on that console train, though.

Gnome Mplayer for videos.

Re: What media player do you use?

Cmus because it runs in a terminal - so it's lightweight - and uses keybindings similiar to vim (my favourite text editor).

Re: What media player do you use?

Question on mocp - apparently the "playlist" and "queue" are separated. IE a song can still be in the queue but not in the playlist (which is confusing, at least to me). Is this intended behaviour?
