If by multimedia you mean audio + video I am not sure, there is
mplayer but it does not do playlists as far as I know, for command
line audio players there are quite a few, including xmms2 which is a
demon that can be controlled from the command line and juke,
an audio player with a curses frontend.
Playlist on the commandline is one of the easier things: just add
multiple files as arguments. mplayer is able to cope with that. And
the < and > buttons on your keyboard let you jump back and forth
Mplayer is an awesome multimedia program, and it does support playlists
with the switch...-playlist!
So, easier than virtually any other approach GUI or CLI, just do this to
play all Ogg Vorbis files in your PWD:
ls -1 *.ogg > ogg_playlist
mplayer -playlist ogg_playlist
and you're in business.
