The attached small patch provides somewhat more
jack connections for mplayer, e.g.
mplayer -ao jack:dest=ardour:port="Audio 2"
willl make mplayer connect to the inputs of track "Audio 2".
You can also connect to e.g. system:playback_3,4 if you
set an alias for them first.
When used without 'dest', 'port' behaves as before i.e.
it selects an application. But the obvious way to do this
now is to use 'dest' of course.
Not a perfect solution but it helps.
Yes, i was needing it :-)
mplayer is my jack favorite file player because it plays lots of audio
formats, multichannel, and does video!
In some occasions i need to connect to another jack-app or non-initial
hardware outputs. Actually i was doubting trying this hack or wrapping
mplayer with a script that redoes the connections.
I like he option in mplayer better -- and i'm also for promoting it to
the mplayer project.
