mplayer lacks an option for selecting files in a reverse order. So here is a quick way to playback all mp3 files in reverse order:
$ ls -1 -r *.mp3 > mp3.rev
$ mplayer -playlist mp3.rev
- -r reverse order while sorting
- -1 list one file per line
- -playlist file : Play files according to a playlist file
Let’s hear your shell hack in the comments. Sysadmin because even developers need heroes!!!
Razvan talk about hooking Amarok to MySQL database server and create an MP3 file server. I this is an excellent hack:
When it comes to playing music in Linux, Amarok is one of the best audio players out there. It offers almost everything you need, from a clean, intuitive interface to a range of useful scripts. You can even put it on a server and give it a Web interface.
ObsidianMusic was previously known as amaroK Web Frontend. It is a collection of scripts that, combined with a MySQL database and the Amarok player, forms an excellent way of sharing MP3 files over the Internet or a small office network. All the music files in your collection can be played, downloaded, or streamed by a regular Web browser. Furthermore, ObsidianMusic offers search capabilities and music sorting, and can be customized using themes.
=> Create an MP3 file server using Amarok and ObsidianMusic
Recently I decided to burn selected MP3 files on an audio CD from command prompt.
First, you need to convert your mp3 (myfile.mp3) into .wav (myfile.wav) file:
$ mpg123 -w myfile.wav myfile.mp3
Use above command to convert all files to mp3
Then burn all .wav file on to the CD
# cdrecord -dev=ATA:1,0,0 -eject speed=4 -pad -audio *.wav
