Waif is a console audio unfrontend. That means that between the business of choosing the files to listen to and listening to them, there is no interface to hijack a controlling terminal, hog up screen space, or waste a perfectly good xterm. It also ends the hassle of restarting a player moving from one display to another. Waif works all its magic in the background leaving you free to do more important work. Waif is flexible and robust, supporting a wide number of file formats (MP3, Ogg, WAV, RealPlayer, MIDI, audio CD, and more) and a wide number of helper applications including mpg123, mpg321, ogg123, freeamp, and xmms.
