Question Mplayer question


Hii, I love mplayer and using it for all my mp3, but I can't make it play more then one dir at a time
for example if I have /Music/ and there are album1 album 2 and so on, how can I make it play the entire dir /Music ?

Make a playlist. It will pull all the subs of Music as well:

find /Music -name "*.mp3" -print > playlist.txt

Then:

mplayer -playlist playlist.txt

Or even cooler/geekier, you can forgo the playlist and just do a
Code:
find /Music -name "*.mp3" -exec mplayer {} \;
I'm sure there are a ton of other ways also, like piping the list to "sort" and arranging alphabetically.

What distro you use? (since in your file name is ¨.fc5.i386.rpm¨ I guess you´re using fedora 5, if you´re distro is not fedora5 than you got the wrong file)
But anyway the reson why you got ¨libaa.so.1 is nedded¨ is because there are some dependencies for mplayer tu run, in youre case is libaa.so.1 (but there can be other dependencies to...)! Go back from where you downloaded that rpm and check the dependencies list, there you should find libaa.so.1 dowlnloaded, and install that first after that try again with the mplayer install!
You can try to search for mplayer and his dependencies at www.pbone.net! Here you can choose the platform and the distro that matches yours!
Have fun!
