Playing from URL

timidity should play from a URL, like


extra/timidity++ always treats URLs as local filenames quequotion (talk) 11:29, 25 March 2017 (UTC)Reply

I wonder if the man page is not simply inaccurate, but apparently it was correct as of October 2016, at least in whatever version Fedora 24 was using. Either of these (usually) work well enough (might want to increase stdbuf):
wget -qO- | timidity -
curl -fs | timidity -
The purpose being to have something for mozplugger to play midi files in firefox. quequotion (talk) 19:07, 25 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
