CONFIGURATION FILE

       During start, gst123 will read ~/.gst123rc, if this file exists. Empty lines and lines
       starting with a # are ignored. The following commands are available:

       audio_output <driver>[=<device>]
           This sets the default audio driver and the default audio device. It has the same
           effect as the -a / --audio-output command line option. When both are present, a config
           file entry and the command line option, the value from the command line option will be
           used. Read the section on audio drivers for details on the available drivers and
           syntax.

       visualization <visualization_plugin>
           Set default visualization plugin for audio files. This setting has the same effect as
           the -v / --visualization command line option. When both are present, the value from
           the command line option will be used.

AUDIO DRIVERS

       alsa=<device>
           The ALSA driver; when used without argument (as in -a alsa), the ALSA driver uses the
           default device. To select an ALSA device, its possible to use for example alsa=hw:1
           (which will use the hw:1 ALSA device).

       oss=<device>
           The OSS driver; when used without argument (as in -a oss), the OSS driver uses the
           default device. The device can be specified using for example oss=/dev/dsp1 (which
           would use the OSS device /dev/dsp1).

       pulse=<device>
           The PulseAudio driver. This driver optionally accepts a device name using the
           pulse=<device> syntax.

       jack
           The JACK driver. Device selection is not supported in this case.

       none
           Dummy output driver, will not output any audio.
