Thank you, I must have been blind...

It is strange but when I try to run "mplayer -pausing 2 FILE" then the
player complains:

   Unknown option on the command line: -pausing
   Error parsing option on the command line: -pausing

The man page suggests that more information can be found in docs
relevant to the slave mode so I also tried to enable it (via "-slave")
albeit with no luck.

Is it possible that this option not available in v.1.1-4.8?
