       plaympeg - MPEG audio (MP3) and video (MPEG-1) player


       plaympeg [options] file ...


       plaympeg  is an MPEG audio and video player that uses the SDL MPEG Player Library.  It can
       play back MPEG audio (layer 1, 2 and 3), MPEG video (MPEG-1) and MPEG  system  (audio  and
       video combined) files. MPEG-2 video files (as found on DVDs) are not supported.

       The  video  player works best on a 16 bit color depth X11 display, it works on other color
       depths with reduced speed as well. You'll need a CPU with 300 MHz or more to play back  an
       MPEG system stream with 25 frames per seconds (fps) at full speed.
