I am using the following command to open up the stream with an audio cd in the playlist:

vlc -I http cdda://

When run, it automatically starts playing. I need VLC to open up, populate the playlist, but not start playing until explicitly told to. I heard there was an easy way to do this in older versions of VLC, but not anymore? Can anyone help me or confirm this?

Try vlc --no-playlist-autostart
