       This manual page	documents briefly the gnome-mplayer command.

       gnome-mplayer provides a	simple and clean interface to MPlayer.
       GNOME MPlayer has a rich	API that is exposed via	DBus.
       Using  DBus  you	 can  control  a single	or multiple instances of GNOME
       MPlayer from a single command.
       GNOME MPlayer can be used to play media on websites when	used  in  con-
       junction	with Gecko Mediaplayer.
