Playing new music with mpd [21 Jan 2008|07:14pm]

I sat down to write about something, and decided I needed some music to do it. One of the problems with acquiring music via subscription services like emusic.com is that I sometimes never get around to listening to the music I download. I also acquired some CDs over the holidays. So, I thought it'd be nifty to have a way to shuffle and play all of the music that I've acquired in the last 31 days. Wanting particular things like this is part of why I use the combination of mpc and mpd. Here's what I came up with:

cd /mnt/enclosure/music && find encoded -path encoded/podcasts -prune -o -type f -mtime -30 -exec mpc add \{} +

It's not so portable, but it works for what I need.

Incidentally, this is the playlist that doing that right now gives me:
