    weird


    i was viewing someone's myspace in firefox today, and a video loaded on their page with mplayer-plugin. nothing weird about that, but when i quit firefox..the audio kept playing. i shut down KDE, it was still playing. i rebooted, and only when "Sending all processes the KILL signal" did the audio in it stop playing. weird, eh?

    I've gotten something like that before, and it turns out gmplayer was running.

    But yours, that's really weird.

    Same thing happens to me with a CLI cd player by the name of cdcd. I start playing a Beatles cd and when I'm done I enter exit at the cdcd> prompt but it still keeps on playing. As root I did killall cdcd and it still kept playing, the only way to stop playing is to reboot or just let itself play all the tracks. I still have this problem today but it doesn't really bother me, I like constant music in CLI anyway.

    Ya you have to kill gmplayer in order to get it to stop sometimes.
