I tried, but it kept failing on all of the channels. I ended up
modifying it to work for me. Instead of running 'time' on mplayer, I
grepped mplayer's output for "Starting playback". I got better results,
but I still ended up with a bunch of music channels. (Incidentally,
what was failing in the original was mplayer. The line:
'echo | time -o time.dat mplayer $tempdir/test.mpg >& /dev/null'
was exiting too quickly. Even when trying it on 2 different systems...
The output from time.dat was:
0.01user 0.01system 0:01.76elapsed 1%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata
