       This manual page documents briefly the gnome-mplayer command.

       gnome-mplayer provides a simple and clean interface to MPlayer.
       GNOME MPlayer has a rich API that is exposed via DBus.
       Using  DBus  you  can  control  a single or multiple instances of GNOME
       MPlayer from a single command.
