I am writing a java application for mplayer. Most people are saying why use 
java....I am doing this has a grad project of sorts. I use Mplayer as an 
engine of sorts.

My question are this:
1)  I use slave mode to interface with mplayer(props to mplayer for that), I 
can run the commands that I need with that. The only problem is how do I 
retrieve the current time and total length of file. I am reading standard 
in, is there some way to pipe just the time out?
2) Also is there a way to get the info of a song, such as Artist, 
Genre...etc. with Mplayer?
3) Another thing, is there a way to start Mplayer without the info that 
comes up every time you start the app?
