       under the GNU LGPL.

	      for details.

       -v, --visualization _plugin_name_
	      Use a plugin for visualization during audio playback.

       -V, --visualization-list

       plays all files contained in it.

INTERRUPT
       You can abort gst123 at any time	by pressing Ctrl-C. If you are playing
       multiple	 files,	 this will stop	the current file and begin playing the
       next one. If you	want to	abort playing immediately instead of  skipping
       to  the next file, press	Ctrl-C within the first	second of the playback
       of a new	file.

CONFIGURATION FILE
       During start, gst123 will read ~/.gst123rc, if this file	exists.	 Empty
       lines  and  lines starting with a # are ignored.	The following commands
       are available:

       audio_output _driver_[=_device_]
	      This sets	the default audio driver and the default audio device.
	      It  has  the same	effect as the -a / --audio-output command line
	      option. When both	are present, a config file entry and the  com-
	      mand line	option,	the value from the command line	option will be
	      used. Read the section on	 audio	drivers	 for  details  on  the
	      available	drivers	and syntax.

       visualization _visualization_plugin_
	      Set  default  visualization plugin for audio files. This setting
	      has the same effect as the -v / --visualization command line op-
	      tion. When both are present, the value from the command line op-
	      tion will	be used.

AUDIO DRIVERS
       alsa=[_device_]
	      The ALSA driver; when used without argument (as in -a alsa), the
	      ALSA  driver  uses the default device. To	select an ALSA device,
	      its possible to use for example alsa=hw:1	(which	will  use  the
	      hw:1 ALSA	device).

       oss=[_device_]
	      The  OSS	driver;	when used without argument (as in -a oss), the
	      OSS driver uses the default device. The device can be  specified
	      using  for example oss=/dev/dsp1 (which would use	the OSS	device
	      /dev/dsp1).

       pulse=[_device_]
	      The PulseAudio driver. This driver optionally accepts  a	device
	      name using the pulse=_device_ syntax.

       jack   The JACK driver. Device selection	is not supported in this case.

       none   Dummy output driver, will	not output any audio.
