[MPlayer-users] Starting mplayer without specifying a file to play

I'm trying to get mplayer to work with PyTone[1] a curses based
interface to audioplayer command line audioplayers like.

One of the players is mpg321. A nice thing about mpg321 is that you
can launch it WITHOUT SPECIFYING A FILE OR URL TO PLAY. You can then
send it commands like "load this file to playlist", "empty
playlist". Sort of.

I've been trying to figure out if mplayer can do this in slave mode.
