PlayMusic - A Simple Lightweight GUI for Audio Players Sub_title: Requires Gtkdialog, ash, bash or dash and one or more audio players
PlayMusic is a simple lighweight GUI for various audio players including but not limited to mpg123, mpg321, madplay, ogg123, flac123, aplay, wavplay and playsound. The application auto-configures the players when creating the rcfile (depending on what it finds on your system) but you're free to configure it however you choose.
The main requirement of this project is to be minimal but with enough features to be useful. It's also been committed to the Gtkdialog repository as a documented example application.
A FILE creates a playlist of the folder non-recursively and plays the file.
A FOLDER creates a playlist of the folder recursively and plays the first file.
No arguments resumes playing the last playlist and the last file played.
A very effective way to use the application is to configure it to open folders
within your file manager by perhaps choosing it from a right-click menu. It'll
then create a playlist of the folder and everything within it recursively so
that you can play all the albums of one particular artist.
Left-clicking the track details toggles between album/artist and track.
Left-clicking the cover navigates to the next folder if one exists.
Right-clicking the cover navigates to the previous folder if one exists.
Middle-clicking the cover will open the cover full-size in another window.
