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 more»
