< mirc‎ | commands

Note: This command is also a part of the playing music section.

/splay can be used to play a number of common Windows sound files. Supported formats include, but sometimes are not limited to: .wav, .mid, .mp3, .ogg, and .wma.


/splay -cwmpq [filename | stop | pause | resume | seek | skip] [pos]


  • c - Allows you to clear the play queue, except for the currently playing sound (which will continue to play).
  • w - Tells the command you are specifying a .wav file to play.
  • m - Tells the command you are specifying a .mid file to play.
  • p - Tells the command you are specifying an .mp3/.wma/.ogg file to play.
  • q - Specifies that the filename you desire to play should be placed in the queue, after the current sounds has played, and any preceding sounds in the play queue..


  • filename - the filename you wish to play
  • stop - Stops the currently playing file.
  • pause - Allows you to pause the currently playing sound file.
  • resume - Allows you to resume the currently paused sound file.
  • seek - Allows you to seek to a certain point in the currently playing file. See [pos] below.
  • skip - Allows you to skip the currently playing sound file. If there are any files in the queue, the next file will begin to play.
  • [pos] - When used in combination with the seek parameter, this should be the location, in seconds, where you want to begin playing the sound file. Note: The seek position is in milliseconds. Keep in mind that 1-second = 1000-milliseconds.
