NAME

SYNOPSIS
       rhythmbox-client [option...][file...]

DESCRIPTION
       rhythmbox-client is a tool for controlling an already running instance of rhythmbox.  It's
       useful for remote control scripting, adding specific files to the library from the  shell,
       or printing details of what's playing. Any files specified after the option arguments will

       to the play queue.
