The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture is unlikely to exist on Windows
7. The command line you showed is intended to encode the audio to a
format ALSA will accept, and write it to a specific sound device.

Why don't you just use one of the many many players out there. mplayer
is built using a lot of shared ffmpeg code, but is designed to play
things, rather than convert them. Why not use that instead.
