       splay - MPEG-1,2	Audio layer 1,2,3 file player

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

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

       Splay  is  the sound file player	such as	MPEG-1,2 Audio 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  op-
	      tion,  you may play MPEG audio files with	job which exhausts CPU
	      very much.
       -e     exit when	play is	done. (xsplay)
       -f     display info on played and remaining frames and time.
       -m     force to mono.  Play with	mono even if file 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 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.
       -M     Play MPEG	file as	standard input.
       -V     Show version 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.
       -k  num
	      num of frames are	skipped	at the start of	playing.
       -d  dev
	      Change device file. Default device file  is  /dev/dsp.   If  you
	      can't  use  this	device file or you can output raw type data to
	      file, you	can use	this option.  If the first character of	dev is
	      /	, dev would be considered as device file, 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 you	use -l option,
	      these will be ignored.
