XMMS is the X Multimedia System. It is used to play audio and other kinds of media files. By default XMMS can play MPEG audio, Ogg Vor- bis, RIFF wav, most module formats, and a few other formats. XMMS can be extended through plugins to play a number of other audio and video formats.
XMMS accepts the following options: -h, --help Show summary of options. -n, --session Select XMMS session (Default: 0). -r, --rew Skip backwards in playlist. -p, --play Start playing current playlist. -u, --pause Pause current song. -s, --stop Stop current song. -t, --play-pause Pause if playing, play otherwise. -f, --fwd Skip forward in playlist. -e, --enqueue Don't clear the playlist. -m, --show-main-window Show the main window. -v, --version Print version number and exit.
XMMS supports WinAmp style skins. Skins may be stored in either archived (.zip, .wsz, .tgz, .tar.gz, or .tar.bz2) or unarchived format. XMMS looks for skinfiles in /usr/share/xmms/Skins, ~/.xmms/Skins, and locations specified by the SKINSDIR variable.
