In this Little Tutorial i'm going to show you how to install a nice little music player that runs in any terminal, that music player is Mocp.
Mocp is a Terminal music player that uses ncurses to display the Mocp on your screen. it plays all your .mp3, .ogg, .wav, any plenty more.
Now as a warning i cannot guarantee that Mocp will work with encrypted media files. For me i cannot currently play .m4a files, .acc files and any other type of closed source media file. Sense Mocp uses ffmpeg i have heard that it can do decryption's on those types of files, but i am not sure. Please, if you know a way Please tell in the post section down below!
Now lets start Installing Mocp
Please follow the Code lines below.
Sudo apt-get install mocp
Sudo apt-get install moc-ffmpeg-plugin
These Packages will supply you with the basic needs to run mocp with out a hitch.
Once installed you should be able to run Mocp in terminal and you should end up with something like this...
By default the looks of Mocp look horrible, makes you want to barf all over your screen :P
So we are going to change that ugly theme with something nicer.
In your File manager or Terminal please go to...
When you go into the directory you should see a file called config.example.gz, drag it to your desktop or where ever you want it and extract it.
Then you should have a file called config.example, rename it to...
Now move the config file to the following directory below.
Then you should be able to edit the appearance and other settings more.
Now we can finaly change that ugly theme, in this case we are going to make the background transparent.
Open the config file with any editor and scroll down to line 137, there should be a line that says the following...
# XTermTheme = transparent-background
You want to make it look like this...
XTermTheme = transparent-background
And the next time you start up Mocp you should have something like this...
Now you are done
