     ZUKE(1)                                                   ZUKE(1)

     NAME
          mkplist, zuke - graphical music player

     SYNOPSIS
          audio/mkplist directory/file/URL [...]
          audio/zuke [ -s ] [ -c columns ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Zuke is a graphical music player that reads a playlist from
          standard input and presents an interface to play music.
          Playlists are generated by mkplist, which accepts files,
          directories, and URLs as its arguments, and writes the
          resulting playlist to standard output.

          Formats supported by zuke are: MP3, OGG/Vorbis, FLAC, and
          WAV.  With additional programs, Opus, modules and M4A (AAC)
          can be played.  Zuke also supports network streams, such as
          IceCast.  Option -s enables ``shuffle'' mode on start.

          The columns (and their order) displayed can be changed by
          passing the following letters along -c option:

               A  Artist
               a  Album
               b  File basename
               t  Title
               D  Duration
               d  Date
               T  Track number
               p  Full file path

          By default, artist, album, title, and duration are dis-
          played, which corresponds to -c AatD.

          Zuke can be controlled with a mouse, keyboard, and plumber.
          Button 1 selects a track, button 2 plays a track.  Clicking
          on the seek bar changes the playback position accordingly.
          On the right of the seek bar, current position, track dura-
          tion and volume are displayed.  ``∫'' is shown if shuffle
          mode is enabled.

          Zuke provides a number of keyboard controls:

               -          Lower volume.
               + =        Increase volume.
               ← →        Seek 10 seconds back/forward.
               , .        Seek 60 seconds back/forward.
               ↑ ↓ Pgup Pgdown Home End
                          Move within the playlist.
               o i        Jump to current track.

               > b        Skip to next track.
               < z        Skip to previous track.
               v          Stop
               p c Space  Pause/Resume.
               s          Toggle ``shuffle''.
               q Del      Quit.
               /          Search forward.
               ?          Search backwards.
               n          Repeat search forward.
               N          Repeat search backwards.

          Zuke can be controlled by emulating key presses via the
          plumber port audio.

          Files present in the current playlist can be plumbed too,
          and will be played immediately.

     EXAMPLES
          Generate a playlist:

               audio/mkplist /usr/glenda/music \
                    file.mp3 \
                    http://stream.nauticradio.net:14280/ > music.plist

          Playing a playlist:

               audio/zuke < music.plist

          Append to a playlist:

               audio/mkplist /n/moremusic >> music.plist
