The logfile is where the output from mplayer will be stored. The default is /dev/null. The path is the full path to an mplayer executable. Defaults to /usr/bin/mplayer. args takes an array reference that might contain optional parameters to mplayer, as well as the file/URI to be played. mplayer_stop() Parameters: $pid | $pidfile Returns: Boolean Takes a PID or pidfile and tries to stop the corresponding process. If a valid PID is encountered in the pidfile, tries to stop the process. If this succeeds, the pidfile is removed.
