pulseaudio calls it "ALSA (mplayer plugin)" but mplayer is for movies, not audio tracks
@devosmium mplayer does audio files too. It's what I used to use to play my music using a little script.
@OTheB huh, the man page says it's for movies - doesn't mention audio/mp3 anywhere.
i found the process in htop and killed it
@devosmium My script runs it with the -nogui flag, so if you open a terminal and run 'mplayer -nogui somefile.mp3' then it'll play the music without opening a window, just staying in the terminal.
@devosmium audio tracks are just very small movies
just killall mplayer
