Mplayer; quit at end of movie


Hello

I was wondering if there was a way to make Mplayer automatically quit when it gets to the end of the movie I ask it to play.

Many thanks

I should have said, I'm using gmplayer. When it finishes, it leaves gmplayer open.

well that's no problem is it? if you're only watching a single film, why not just use it from the console anyway?
