Note: The README is always the most up to date, and includes more information.
First get the back-ends (such as mpg123) to work from the command line. If it will not work from the command line, it definitely will not work from within GQmpeg. Most of the important output options for mpg123 can be selected on the Output tab of the configuration dialog. If the sound is breaking up when your system is under heavy load, try using a buffer of at least 1000K.
Command Line options:
GQmpeg uses the following syntax:
gqmpeg [[-debug] [-skinhelp] [-skin:skindir] [path] ...]
If [path] is given and is a directory, the playlist window opens to that directory. I the [path] points to a file, if that file is a playlist, the playlist is loaded. If the file is a song it is appended to the playlist and is the initially selected song. Multiple songs can be specified on the command line.
-debug prints debugging information to standard output. (only useful to someone that knows the source code)
-skinhelp prints mouse coordinates for help when designing skins.
-skin:skindir starts GQmpeg with the skin specified by skindir, GQmpeg looks for the skin in the current, HOME/.gqmpeg/skins, and installed prefix (example:/usr/share/gqmpeg/skins) directories.
