    mplayer stops after first song in playlist

    At the cli I enter
    Code:
    $mplayer -shuffle -playlist My_Playlist.m3u
    .

    When mplayer reaches the last second of the first song it just quits. No error message. It doesn't crash. I can skip to the next song by hitting enter, but the same thing happens: mplayer stops what it's doing at the last second, then nothing.

    BTW have just upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10, then immediately to 13.04. Shortly before this I purged mplayer and upgraded to mplayer2. I note the .mplayer/config file is empty. Is there an option I should add to it to stop this behaviour?

    Can you give the commandline and full output just to be sure? Add a -v in there for extra info... BTW moving to MPlayer2 is not necessarily an upgrade
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Weird. Added the -v and it worked! Took away the -v and it still works.

    Can someone list the primary differences (or annoyances) between mplayer and mplayer2?

    Incidently, you can run mplayer -v -v -v for even more diagnostics.

    The view from one side is here:

    http://www.mplayer2.org/differences/

    Bear in mind that like most forks there was a little ill feeling involved...

    There is a new fork for mplayer2 https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/bl...en/changes.rst
    I haven't seen any new commit or update in mplayer2 for 6-8 months, some suggest on the arch forum that it may be dead.
