Audio player for AKFAvatar.
Supported audio formats:

Ogg Vorbis, Wave, AU

Supported playlist formats:


This program can be used interactively, or files can be given as arguments.

If you want to call it from another Lua-script with dofile(), you can set the global variable AUDIO with either a string or an array of strings.

Ogg Vorbis is only supported when the module "akfavatar-vorbis" is available. It cannot play files with more than a single Vorbis stream ("Vorbis I" simple profile).

When you select "play all..." or use several files as arguments, then playlists are ignored. Playlists also cannot refer to other playlists.

Network addresses may be supported, when you have the tool "curl" installed in your PATH. But this doesn’t work on all platforms.

If the directory with the files has an image file named "cover" this image is shown while playing the files. If you use a playlist with paths or URLs, then the file has to be in the same directory as the playlist. This image is never fetched from a network.
