mpg123 hangs in songs
When I have a list of mp3 fils to give to mpg123 with the command
mpg123 -ZC -list /path/to/list. It happes that he plays serveral songs and at the beginning
of some song he hangs. The only thing I can do then is ctrl Z to quit te program.
But the process is still in my memory. How can i prevent mpg123 from hanging?
It's such a nice commandline mp3 player, I would really like to fix this problem.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Ctrl-Z only puts suspends the process, which you can resume from the command line with either fg (foreground) or bg (background). To kill it, normally a Ctrl-C will kill the foreground process. When you have suspended it with a Ctrl-Z, you can kill it from the command line with the command: kill -9 pid
where pid is the process id of the program. You can use the ps command to find that out.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
