Hi there,

Happy owner of two soundcards, mplayer complains "Could not 
open/initialize audio device" when trying to select one of those through 
The truth is, I've got several informations about "-ao" option with 
various synthaxes : some say "alsa9:device=hw=1.0", others say 
"alsa5:device=hw=1.0", else say "alsa1x:device=hw=1.0" and, at last 
None of them work. I suppose taking a look at the source code could lead 
to the answer, but where...
Does anyone have an idea ?

Thanks for your answer !

PS : I'm running MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.1.3.
