Projects / gst123


gst123 is a GStreamer-based command line audio player in the style of mpg123 and ogg123. The advantage over these tools is that gst123 can play every file GStreamer can, so mixed music collections with FLAC, Ogg, and MP3 files are no problem. Newer versions of gst123 additionally provide support for playing video files, while the ability to use gst123 without X11 display has been preserved.
