Welcome to the Tiny Core Linux Wiki at tinycorelinux.net!


These tips are taken from http://memory.xmms.org/xmms_v1.2/documentation.html

When you start up XMMS, you will get a console very similar to that of WinAmp.

  • On the top is the window title bar. To the right you will see 3 buttons,

Left button will minimize XMMS.

 Middle button will make XMMS only display the title bar.
 Right button will end the XMMS session.
  • The area in the upper left part displays the following:
  1. Play state: Paused, Stopped, or Playing
  2. Time elapsed in the current song or if you click on it, the reversed.
  3. Spectrum analyzer of the sound being played. Right mouse click will

bring up the Visualization menu. Left mouse button will change the

   analyzer to an oscilloscope and/or none.
  • To the right of the Spectrum analyzer is the title of the file being played.

This also contains the length of the song being played, as well as its

position in the [[unsorted]] playlist. Right clicking in this window will bring
up a new menu with some more options that are self explaining.
  • In the left part of the Spectrum analyzer you'll have letters (at least if

you use the default skin) O A I D V left mouse clicking on these will open

up menus or perform actions.
O : Options menu
A : Always on top
I : File info box
D : Double size mode
V : Visualization menu
  • Underneath the track title are the following static informational data:
  1. bit rate in KBps (usually 128 or 112)
  2. Sample Rate in KHz (usually 44)
  3. Stereo or Mono channel mixing
  • Underneath the informational data are a few controls you can play with:
  1. The first slider controls the volume
  2. The second slider controls the balance between speakers
  3. The button marked “EQ” loads up the graphic equalizer
  4. The button marked “PL” loads up the playlist editor
  5. The LARGE slide bar moves from left to right as the song plays. You can

drag this to jump to another location in the current file.

  • On the bottom of the console are the standard buttons you would see on a CD

player: Previous track, Play, Pause, Stop, Next track, eject, shuffle

and repeat.
  1. The eject button doesn't REALLY eject, of course. Smiley It opens up the

file requester. The File Requester builds a playlist for the current

   XMMS session. You can use it to load files, add files to the list, or
   load all mp3s in a directory.
  1. The shuffle button randomizes the sequence of the playlist.
  1. The repeat button when enabled makes the playlist loop when it reaches the

end of the playlist.
