Emacs package to play multimedia files using external players

EMMS (a.k.a. Emacs Multimedia System) is an application to play multimedia files from Emacs using external players. It has simple, usable core functionality and a multitude of extensions which build on that core.


The VCS version of Emms is normally stable and is recommended over the tarball release.

Next, add the following lines to your emacs config:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp/emms/")
(require 'emms-setup)

An online version of the manual is available at: https://www.gnu.org/software/emms/manual/
