      1 # nausea

      3 This is a simple audio visualizer.  It works well with the mpd
      4 music player daemon.  It was originally inspired by the visualizer
      5 screen of ncmpcpp.  It depends on the fftw3 and curses libraries.

      7 You need to add the following to your mpd.conf.  The format is important
      8 because it's the only one supported for now.
      9 
     10     audio_output {
     11         type "fifo"
     12         name "Pipe"
     13         path "/tmp/audio.fifo"
     14         format "44100:16:2"
     15     }
     16 
     17 Then start the program with:
     18 
     19     $ nausea
     20 
     21 Alternatively specify the path of your mpd fifo with:
     22 
     23     $ nausea <path-to-fifo>
     24 
     25 To try it out with color support try:
     26 
     27     $ xterm -bg black -fa "Monospace:pixelsize=12" -e ./nausea -c
