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 -Sy moc


To start moc:

# mocp

This will start the server and interface. You will enter player interface. Some usfull short cuts to use mocp (Note capitilisation):

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 recursivly to playlist - A Clear playlist - C

Increase volume 5% - . Decrease volume 5% - , Increase volume 1% - > Decrease volume 1% - < Change volume to 10% - meta + 1 Change volume to 20% - meta + 2 ect, ect...

Quit player - q

NOTE: To shut down the server:

# mocp -x
