An error I get when launching a song from command line with Eshell inside of Emacs?

Asked by Theatre-X on 2011-01-04

I'm trying to listen to the song "Burden" by Opeth in VLC. I tried launching the song in vlc in the Emacs Shell, "Eshell". Here's what I type:

vlc Opeth - Burden.ogg &

And this is the error I get when VLC pops up:

File reading failed:
VLC could not open the file "/home/gogeden/Music/Opeth".
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///home/gogeden/Music/Opeth'. Check the log for details.

Is it because of the way the file is named?

I'm using VLC version 1.1.4 under Ubuntu 10.10.

Either run:

vlc "Opeth - Burden.ogg" &

Or:

vlc Opeth\ -\ Burden.ogg" &

It is a matter of blank spaces
