Whenever I type xdg-open filename or vlc filename, a window opens and start playing the filename. How can I achieve to play the sound file without displaying a corresponding window in the command line ?

    What do you mean by "without displaying a corresponding window in the command line"? Did you mean without a GUI window? If so, you can probably use aplay instead. – Sparhawk Feb 13 '15 at 3:38

    cvlc is a curses frontend for vlc, but if you want a great CLI player, give a look to mpv—it's soundly the best. – HalosGhost Feb 13 '15 at 12:47

I've used mocp (MOC). With it you can even add a play list.
