With the terminal: Listening to music with VLC

Ya we saw how to play our music with MPlayer And to tell the truth, the process is cumbersome since we would have to create a playlist to listen to more than one song.

Well, now we bring you other tips, but this time with VLC, One Audio / Video Players most popular in GNU / Linux. We open a terminal and put:

$ cvlc --extraintf ncurses /home/usuario/Musica/Album/*.mp3

As you can see in the image that starts this post, we can see all the songs that we select in an album. To skip the song we use the key N, to go back, the key P.

There is no need to clarify that VLC it has to be installed or if?
