NAME

       cmus-remote - control cmus

SYNOPSIS

       cmus-remote [OPTION]... [FILE|DIR|PLAYLIST]...
       cmus-remote -C COMMAND...
       cmus-remote

DESCRIPTION

       Add FILE/DIR/PLAYLIST to playlist, library (-l) or play queue (-q).

       If no arguments are given cmus-remote reads raw commands from stdin (one command per
       line).  Raw commands are cmus' command mode commands.  These same commands are used in
       configuration files and key bindings.  cmus(1) contains full list of commands.  For
       consistency also searching is supported: -C /text.

       When -C is given all command line arguments are treated as raw commands.

EXAMPLES

       Add playlists/files/directories/URLs to library view (1 & 2):

              $ cmus-remote -l music.m3u \
              http://live.urn1350.net:8080/urn_high.ogg

       Load (clear and add) playlist to playlist view (3):

              $ cmus-remote -c music.m3u

       Three different ways to toggle repeat:

              $ cmus-remote -R
              $ cmus-remote -C "toggle repeat"
              $ cmus-remote
              toggle repeat
              ^D

       Query settings or key bindings:

              $ cmus-remote -C "set repeat?"
              setting: 'repeat=false'
              $ cmus-remote -C "showbind common a"
              bind common a win-add-l

       Dump the playlist to stdout:

              $ cmus-remote -C "save -p -"
              [...]

       Search works too:

              $ cmus-remote -C /beatles
