Projects / xcplay


xcplay is an ncurses interface to XMMS. The UI is a clone of cplay, but using XMMS as a backend instead of console players, running either as a GUI-stripped daemon or on a virtual X server (Xvfb). Advantages over cplay include seeking for many more formats, detachment, unlimited instances, and console player independence.
