NAME
       rhythmbox-client	- controls a running instance of rhythmbox

SYNOPSIS
       rhythmbox-client	[option...][file...]

DESCRIPTION
       rhythmbox-client	 is a tool for controlling an already running instance
       of rhythmbox.  It's useful for remote control  scripting,  adding  spe-
       cific  files  to	 the  library  from  the shell,	or printing details of
       what's playing. It also has an interactive mode,	useful for controlling
       playback	 remotely  via ssh. Any	files specified	after the option argu-
       ments will be added to the library.  If the --enqueue option is	given,
       the files will also be added to the play	queue.
