rhythmbox-client - controls a running instance of rhythmbox
rhythmbox-client is a tool for controlling an already running instance of rhythmbox. It's useful for remote control scripting, adding specific files to the library from the shell, or printing details of what's playing. It also has an interactive mode, useful for controlling playback remotely via ssh. Any files specified after the option arguments will be added to the library. If the --enqueue option is given, the files will also be added to the play queue.
