Music On Console is a lightweight music player. It consists of 2 parts, a server (Moc) and the player/interface (Mocp). This is similar to mpd, but unlike mpd, Moc comes with a interface.


Sync and install with pacman:

# pacman -S moc


If you want to use Moc with OSS v4.1 go to that article.


To start moc:

$ mocp

This will start the server and interface. You will enter player interface. Some useful shortcuts to use mocp (case sensitive):

Start playing a track Enter
Pause track Space or p
Play next track n
Play previous track b
Switch from playlist browsing to filesystem browsing (and vice versa) tab
Add one track to the playlist a
Add a folder recursively to playlist A
Clear playlist C
Increase volume 5% . (dot)
Decrease volume 5% , (comma)
Increase volume 1% >
Decrease volume 1% <
Change volume to 10% meta + 1
Change volume to 20% meta + 2
etc, etc...
Quit player q

NOTE: To shut down the server:

$ mocp -x
