Exclamation mplayer hangs

hi folks

My gmplayer hangs after playing 2 songs, that too after missing chunks of data and i have to kill x. Why is this?

I have this mp3 cd which has about 183 songs on it. I play it using mplayer(command line). Whenever i do cntrl+c to stop the songs, i cant play any sound again until i restart x. Is this normal behaviour or is mplayer being naughty

Ummm ... why don't you use a mp3 player
instead, like mpg321?
