Simple and lightweight command line MP3 player

mpg321 is a clone of the popular mpg123 command-line mp3 player. It should function as a drop-in replacement for mpg123 in many cases. While some of the functionality of mpg123 is not yet implemented, mpg321 should function properly in most cases for most people, such as for frontends such as gqmpeg.

mpg321 is based on the mad MPEG audio decoding library. It therefore is highly accurate, and also uses only fixed-point calculation, making it more efficient on machines without a floating-point unit. It is not as fast as mpg123 on systems which have a floating point unit.

Package version:0.3.2-1.1

This means that mpg321 will actually be called if you run mpg123, 
even if you have mpg123 installed. If you want to override this default,
see update-alternatives(8) ('man update-alternatives').

of these capacities, mpg321 can be used as a drop-in replacement for

mpg321 now implements mpg123's 'Remote Control' interface, via option
-R. This is useful if, for example, you're writing a frontend to mpg321
which needs a consitent, reliable interface to control playback.

The Remote Control Interface has a small quirk, consistent with that of
mpg123: you must specify a dummy argument on the command-line. That
is to say, running `mpg321 -R' will bring up the usa
