MP3 player

find . -name '*.mp3' | sort | while read -r mp3; do echo -e "<h3>$mp3</h3>\n<audio controls src=\"$mp3\"></audio>"; done > index.html; python -m http.server
I tried a few curses based mp3 players for playing back choir practice songs for my wife. Unfortunately none of the ones I tried were capable of scrubbing a track. Firefox saves the day.

  • Maybe it could work for any music player if you change "audacious2" with the string you see in `ps aux` for your player. Needs testing in different systems. Show Sample Output

    function cp_mp3_to { PID=`pidof audacious2`; FILEPATH=`lsof -p $PID| grep mp3| sed s/[^\/]*//`; cp "$FILEPATH" "$1"; }

  • Certain Flash video players (e.g. Youtube) write their video streams to disk in /tmp/ , but the files are unlinked. i.e. the player creates the file and then immediately deletes the filename (unlinking files in this way makes it hard to find them, and/or ensures their cleanup if the browser or plugin should crash etc.) But as long as the flash plugin's process runs, a file descriptor remains in its /proc/ hierarchy, from which we (and the player) still have access to the file. The method above worked nicely for me when I had 50 tabs open with Youtube videos and didn't want to have to re-download them all with some tool.
