Playing Music On Console (MOC) Ubuntu

I already tell you about 'cmus', a music player on the command line of ubuntu, but there is another command line based music player called 'moc' stand for 'music on console'. In this article i will show you how to install and use 'moc' on ubuntu and compared it with cmus to see which one is better.

What's the different between 'moc' and 'cmus'? in my opinion, using 'moc' is much easier than using 'cmus'. On 'cmus' you need to add music files with ':add' command and then play the music, while on 'moc' you don't need to do that.

When you run 'moc', you got to window on the left side you can navigate inside your computer directories to look for music files, simply use the arrow keyboard up and down and press enter to go inside a folder. On the right side is your playlist which you can add any music files you like.
