1 You really need to find out what you need/want.
3 If you want a nice GUI media player then you either need X or some
4 kind of solution that works on framebuffer (they exist, but they are
5 not straightforward to get working). Some web based players exist as
6 well.
8 Secondly, mplayer does work on command line. You don't need to do
9 anything special for that. However, its capabilities come limited by
10 the graphics capabilities of your environment. If you ware in
11 framebuffer and you have correctly set up it using kms, uvesafb or
12 something like that, then you can probably play videos and show
13 graphics in your ttys, if not, then you'll need X for that. In any
14 case, don't expect a great performance when playing high resolution
15 videos in a framebuffer device.
17 As for music, there are some very good players for command line, some
18 of them are strictly command-based, others (like moc) offer a nice
19 ncurses-based interface where you can navigate your collections and
20 playlists.
