Hi there misco_2083,
I envy your YAD skills  8)
yt-get is the best GUI tool out there to download from YouTube. Using jq and json data in yt-get is ingenious 8)
Coming to PMRP, if anyone can dress it in GUI, it's you my friend 8)
Can't wait to see PMRP-YAD :)

Hi hakerdefo.
I'm afraid there is nothing to envy  on, I can't make it work like I imagined with mpg123.  :(
Trying with VLC MPRIS player interface. That way I can control the VLC with dbus.
This script  will launch the vlc command line interface.
Code: [Select]
cvlc -I rc  -vvv 2>&1 >/dev/null | grep --line-buffered "New Icy-Title=" \
| stdbuf -oL -eL sed -e 's/;.*//' -e 's/.*=//' -e "s/'//g" \
| while read -r line; do
     echo $i $line
and this would control the vlc (from the second terminal)
Code: [Select]
# Use
# vlc [pause|rpause|prev|next|stop]
PATHS="org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.$name /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2"
DBUS_SEND="dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=$PATHS"
RC="$DBUS_SEND org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player"

if [ "$@" = "prev" ]; then
    $RC.Previous   #previous radio station
elif [ "$@" = "rpause" ]; then
elif [ "$@" = "stop" ]; then
elif [ "$@" = "pause" ]; then
elif [ "$@" = "next" ]; then
    $RC.Next        # next radio station
    echo "Command not found for player $name: $@" 1>&2
    exit 1
Right now, I'm exploring what can I do with dbus-send
Code: [Select]
#get Metadata
#  dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get string:'org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player' string:'Metadata'

#Open Url
# dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.OpenUri string:""

#Get Volume
dbus-send --print-reply  --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get string:'org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player' string:'Volume'

#Set Volume (min 0.0 to max 1.0)
# dbus-send  --type=method_call --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:'org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player' string:'Volume' variant:double:0.0
# dbus-send  --type=method_call --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.vlc /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:'org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player' string:'Volume' variant:double:1.0
It would be cool if I could catch the signal when Metadata changes. ;)
