sap — simple audio player
sap [options] [filename(s)]
sap is a utility for playing audio files in various formats, including .ogg and .flac. It can also play audio files over an http stream. sap uses GStreamer media plugins and should be able to play any audio file handled by a gstreamer plugin; such as .mp3 and .midi.
From the command line, type "sap" and the name of the file(s), playlist, or stream you wish to play. Playlists should be in plain-text format and should have complete paths to audio files. You may also use wildcards to play multiple files in a directory.
- -l, --list
play files found in a playlist
- -r, --random
play files randomly (requires -l flag first if using playlist)
- -c, --continuous
play files continuously (requires -l flag first if using playlist)
The following keypresses will control sap as it is playing
Down Arrow: volume down
Up Arrow: volume up
Left Arrow: seek back
Right Arrow: seek forward
b: previous file in cue or playlist
n: next file in cue or playlist
For Vi(m) users, the "h, j, k, l" keys behave in a similar fashion to the arrow keys.
- Play file1,file2 and file3 in order and quit
sap file1 file2 file3
