Linux / UNIX: mplayer Play mp3s From a Playlist File

I'm an extreme newbie to the Linux world, but any time I try to get play files according to a playlist file using mplayer command line it turns up this error:

$ mplayer playlist.m3u

mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control.

Playing playlist.m3u.
Cache fill: 0.00% (44 bytes)

Exiting... (End of file)
