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 SVN-r1.0~rc3+svn20090426-4.4.3 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
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.
Cache fill: 0.00% (44 bytes)
Exiting... (End of file)
How do I fix this and play music without using GUI tools?
