rhythmbox man page

rhythmbox — music player and library for tagged files using GStreamer


rhythmbox [option...]


rhythmbox is a very easy to use music playing and management program which supports a wide range of audio formats (including mp3 and ogg). Originally inspired by Apple's iTunes, the current version also supports Internet Radio and Last.fm integration, iPod syncing and generic portable audio player support. Audio CD playback, ripping and encoding, music sharing, and Podcasts.

For performance reasons, the remote control abilities have been moved from the rhythmbox binary to a separate program. See rhythmbox-client and the corresponding man page for documentation.
