use < and > when playing cds in mplayer


I can play cd's in mplayer by doing this:

$ mplayer cdda://?

I was just wondering if there was a way to play a cd and then be able to use < and > to get to the different songs in the cd. The reason I ask this is because when I type mplayer in the terminal, it says "< or > seek backward/forward in playlist"

Or is there a different way to do what I want to do?

Okay, I have a temporary solution. I made a text file called cd.pls that says:

<keep doing that until>

When I want to play a cd, I type mplayer -playlist cd.pls. That's all.
