Play only audio of movies with mplayer

17 Sep 2012

I had a piece of very good music in an MP4 video file, so good that I'd like to loop it for a whole afternoon. With mplayer, I could single cycle this file with option -loop 0. Moreover, I wanted to play only the audio but not the video, so I searched the 'man page' of mplayer and found this:

mplayer -loop 0 -novideo filename.mp4

And voilĂ !

PS. I also found this post very useful if you want to extract the audio from an mp4 file to mp3 file.
