A command-line shell for programs like mpg123 and ogg123, music123
plays a variety of sound files using a mpg123/ogg123-like interface.
With all the Recommends installed, music123 plays wav, mp3 and
ogg files. By simply changing the config file, music123 can play any
sound file you have a player for.
(If you install a recent version of vorbis-tools, music123 will
handle Ogg Flac and Ogg Speex files too.)
