Thanks for your hard work Bernhard. I compiled it and started to play
with it. Unfortunately, itsn't quite what I was hoping for. Perhaps
I am simply not using it properly. It appears as if this is meant to
be controlled by buttons on some LCDs, and invoke mplayer by pushing a
What I was hoping for is something like:
which would then play just as if running "/usr/bin/mplayer", but
display info on the LCD screen as well.
Bernhard seems to have all the logic in the mplayer.c file though, so
perhaps someone can figure out how to extract it for something like
