Play PluginΒΆ

The play plugin allows you to pass the results of a query to a music player in the form of an m3u playlist.

To use the plugin, enable it in your configuration (see Using Plugins). Then use it by invoking the beet play command with a query. The command will create a temporary m3u file and open it using an appropriate application.

By default, the playlist is opened using the open command on OS X, xdg-open on other Unixes, and start on Windows. To configure the command, you can use a play: section in your configuration file:

    command: /Applications/

Enable beets’ verbose logging to see the command’s output if you need to debug.
