moc.uci - console music player
I wrote a Bash script that would recursively play a directory of mp3/ogg files, but it was not interactive beyond choosing the initial directory. You could skip the currently playing file, but that was about it. Moc provides a way to control playback as well as any gui music player (better than most), including dynamically creating playlists. It's also very cool that its interface is very similar to midnight commander.

I'm just curious about something. I had assumed that one of the main reasons for choosing a terminal based application as opposed to a GUI application would be to conserve resources.

However, on my brief and very informal test of MOC yesterday it appeared to be more resource intensive than XMMS on my system. Playing the same mp3 file with each player, under MOC my system showed a 10% processor load and under XMMS the processor load fluctuated between 0-3%.

So although the idea of MOC is kind of cool, I think I'll stick to XMMS for now..

It's also for text-only terminals that were common in the 80's, and for ssh and telnet connections where you might not have X.

There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
