The way mplayer selects the ports to connect to is the
most useless I've ever seen.
It will connect to the first N ports that match a pattern.
The order depends on how jack lists them, and that is
undefined. The chances that you get the 16 channels of
a 3rd-order file connected correctly are virtually zero.
Manual connection is an option of course, to be repeated
for each file (if you play multiple files with the same
command it will 'reconnect' between them.
Since the part I'm missing most is playing CDs it looks
like I'll just add that to my own jack player, or write
a separate one. Looking at the alsaplayer code it seems
There are three of them, and Alleline.
