Zuke is a graphical music player that reads a playlist from standard
input and presents an interface to play music. |
Playlists are generated by mkplist, which accepts files, directories, and URLs as its arguments, and writes the resulting playlist to standard output. Option –s enables "simple" sorting of the entries of the playlist, where only full paths are compared.
Formats supported by zuke are: MP3, OGG/Vorbis, FLAC, and WAV. With additional programs, Opus, modules and M4A (AAC) can be played. Zuke also supports network streams, such as IceCast. Option –s enables ``shuffle'' mode on start.
The columns (and their order) displayed can be changed by passing
the following letters along –c option:
Zuke can be controlled with a mouse, keyboard, and plumber. Button 1 selects a track, button 2 plays a track. Clicking on the seek bar changes the playback position accordingly. On the right of the seek bar, current position, track duration and volume are displayed. ``∫'' is shown if shuffle mode is enabled.
Plumbing a file with .plist extension loads the playlist in zuke. This is useful with a collection of playlists displayed aside.
Zuke provides a number of keyboard controls:
Zuke can be controlled by emulating key presses via the plumber port audio.
Files present in the current playlist can be plumbed too, and will be played immediately.
When a new track starts playing, zuke will write its tags to stdout,
each column separated by a tab character. If playback is stopped,
an empty line is written instead. This can be used for scrobbling
or displaying the current track in another window.
