       splay - MPEG-1,2 Audio layer 1,2,3 and Wave file(1,n) player

       splay [-2VMWmrsv] [-d dev] [-l list] [-t num] filenames...

       xsplay [-2Vemrsv] [-d dev] [-l list] [-t num] filenames...

       Splay  is  the  sound file(1,n) player such as MPEG-1,2 Audio files and Wave
       files.  And you can play these files using list file. With pthread,  it
       can play sound files smoother. And it has X-interface with libqt. Splay
       with qt may make you splay easily.

       Splay has several options.

       -2     play MPEG-Audio files with  half-frequency.   If  you  use  this
              option,  you  may  play MPEG audio files with job which exhausts
              CPU very much.
       -e     exit(3,n,1 builtins) when play is done. (xsplay)
       -m     force to mono.  Play with mono even if(3,n) file(1,n) have stereo quality.
       -r     Repeat  forever. (Not X-interface) If you -r with -s, list files
              would be shuffled everytime.
       -s     Shuffle play. If you give list file(1,n) or a number of files,  Splay
              will  makes  them rearranged randomly. And with -r Everytime the
              order of files would be changed.
       -v     Verbose, Very verbose, Very very verbose. (Note:  splay  version(1,3,5)
              supplied with mp3blaster does not have this feature anymore)
       -M     Play MPEG file(1,n) as standard input.
       -W     Play Wave file(1,n) as standard input.
       -V     Show version(1,3,5) number.
       -t  num
              num of frames were saved during playing. When CPU is so busy and
              prevents splay from decoding, splay will play back  using  saved
              frames.  This feature makes you do other job freely with listing
              MPEG music.
       -d  dev
              Change device file. Default device file(1,n)  is  /dev/dsp.   If  you
              can't  use  this  device file(1,n) or you can output raw(3x,7,8,3x cbreak) type data to
              file(1,n), you can use this option.  If the first character of dev is
              / , dev would be considered as device file(1,n), If the first charac-
              ter of dev is - , dev would be considered  as  standard  output,
              otherwise dev would be considered as normal file.
       -l  list
              Select  list  file.   http://  can  be used. (e.g. http://local-
              You can put several files, and use http:// If filename  contains
              .mp or .MP, it will be considered as MPEG-Audio file.  Otherwise
              be considered as Wave file.  But if(3,n) you  use  -l  option,  these
              will be ignored.
