Projects / NCXmms


NCXmms is an XMMS frontend based on ncurses. Feature highlights include its ability to control XMMS from a text environment using comfortable menu library widgets. It can also quickly find items in the playlist after the user enters part of the name. Common use scenarios are controlling XMMS remotely through SSH, or using XMMS without X11 by using Xvfb (a virtual framebuffer X server).
