The mmcli utility forwards commands to multimedia components so that you can test their APIs. These commands can be listed in files or entered in an interactive session.

Your mmcli command line must list any desired logging options and any files containing media commands that you want to execute (i.e., test scripts). The tool configures itself based on these options and executes the test scripts. It then starts an interactive session, which lets you enter media commands and see their results. If you don't name any test scripts, mmcli just starts the interactive session.

In this release, with mmcli, you can test the API of the mm-renderer service, which lets you play individual tracks or playlists.

Note: To use the mm-renderer API, you must be running the mm-renderer server process. For instructions on doing so, see the Multimedia Renderer Developer's Guide.
