SYNOPSIS

cmus-remote [OPTION]... [FILE|DIR|PLAYLIST]...
cmus-remote -C COMMAND...
cmus-remote

DESCRIPTION

Add FILE/DIR/PLAYLIST to playlist, library (-l) or play queue (-q).

If no arguments are given cmus-remote reads raw commands from stdin (one command per line). Raw commands are cmus’ command mode commands. These same commands are used in configuration files and key bindings. cmus(1) contains full list of commands. For consistency also searching is supported: -C /text.

When -C is given all command line arguments are treated as raw commands.

OPTIONS

--server SOCKET
Connect using socket SOCKET instead of $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/cmus-socket.

--help

Display usage information and exit.

--version

Display version information and exit.

-p, --play

Start playing.

-u, --pause

Toggle pause.

-s, --stop

Stop playing.

-n, --next

Skip forward in playlist.

-r, --prev

Skip backward in playlist.

-R, --repeat

Toggle repeat.

-S, --shuffle

-v, --volume VOL

Change volume. See vol command in cmus(1).

-k, --seek SEEK

-Q

Get player status information. Same as -C status. Note that status is a special command only available to cmus-remote.

-l, --library

Modify library instead of playlist.

-P, --playlist

Modify playlist (default).

-q, --queue

Modify play queue instead of playlist.

-c, --clear

Clear playlist, library (-l) or play queue (-q).

-C, --raw

Treat arguments (instead of stdin) as raw commands.

EXAMPLES

http://live.urn1350.net:8080/urn_high.ogg

Load (clear and add) playlist to playlist view (3):

$ cmus-remote -c music.m3u

Three different ways to toggle repeat:

$ cmus-remote -R
$ cmus-remote -C "toggle repeat"
$ cmus-remote
toggle repeat
^D

Query settings or key bindings:

$ cmus-remote -C "set repeat?"
setting: ’repeat=false’
$ cmus-remote -C "showbind common a"
bind common a win-add-l

Dump the playlist to stdout:

$ cmus-remote -C "save -p -"
[...]
