[MPlayer-users] Using mplayer with mp3 files for reading specific portions of the audio file

I am using mplayer as audio module in a Digital Talking Book player on 
Linux. For this player I need to read mp3 files with a specific time 
offset and for a specific duration. Currently I run mplayer with the 
following options:

mplayer -slave -really-quiet audioFile.mp3 -ss beginTimeS -endpos 
endTimeS -hr-mp3-seek

However, as already specified in the documentation, the specified 
durations are not precisely respected, thus there is a small overlap 
between successive audio sections. Is there a way to have a more precise 
mp3 playback ?
