Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently discovered feh and it is awesome for gallery managing as you can launch a slideshow with 10 predefined actions (such as move current file to folder X, move current file to folder Y,rm,...)

I'm searching something similar for the audio files, after (or meanwhile) playing the file, with a key move the file to a predefined folder.

Is that possible? I'm currently using vlc and I'm searching through it's man to see if there is anything it can do but I haven't found anything yet.

wouldn't mpd suit your needs? –  elias Jan 8 '13 at 19:03
Can't find much information about that program (manual or something like that) right now I have this project in standby, when I return to it I'll answer you. Thanks anyway for the answer –  Vndtta Jan 8 '13 at 21:47
I used it for a while some years ago.There is a page at ubuntu community wiki: help.ubuntu.com/community/MPD –  elias Jan 8 '13 at 21:56
Thanks but that link says nothing of binding keys or something alike, can you do that? so while playing a file, you press a key and it executes mv $file /desired/dir? –  Vndtta Jan 8 '13 at 23:36
sorry, I may have misunderstood what you really want, mpd is just a server program that allows you to queue and dequeue music files, you use client programs to do that (there are several, from cmdline to big GUIs) and control play/stop. –  elias Jan 9 '13 at 0:45
