audiopreview is a command-line tool that plays previews of many audio file types (Ogg, MP3, etc.), video file types (AVI, MPEG, Real, etc.), and Internet streams. It can also be used as a regular command-line media file player (i.e. play the files entirely like yauap or mpc123 would).
playerdo is a script for controlling a variety of different media players from a single command line interface. It is intended to be used with keyboard shortcuts, especially the media keys (play/pause, next, etc.) found on many keyboards. It automatically detects which media player is running and tries to do the right thing.
