Shmplayer executes a single instance of mplayer in the background and controls it through a FIFO. It supports many of the features you'll find in XMMS and it is easily extendible. However, unlike XMMS, shmplayer doesn't require an X server to be active. You can even use it from a remote shell. Shmplayer has also some unique features like "jgrep" that lets you jump to the first "grepped" match of the playlist.

Release Notes: When jumping to the last loaded playlist, xmplayer exits from shuffle mode. This bug has been fixed. If xmplayer is already running, the "play" command rewinds the current track.
Release Notes: The "jcgrep" command has been added. It jumps to the first matched entry of the current playlist. It's useful to skip to the next match. Some regular expression bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The 'mute' and 'seek' mplayer commands are now recognized. The 'jgrep' command supports now multiple patterns separated by spaces, e.g. 'xmplayer jgrep danubio blu'. The support for a continuous playlist has been added. If the current track is the last one, 'Next' will teleport on the first one. The opposite is for 'Prev'. Mutexes have been added: if two instances of xmplayer have been executed nearly at the same time, they won't overlap, because one of the two will wait the finish of the execution of the other.
