  MPLAYER has an extensive documentation that is beyond the scope of
  this help. For more information see:
  HTML/de?ref_type=heads OR go to:
  there is a symbol "Code", download source code, unzip it, go to
  "\mplayer-master\DOC\MPLAYER\HTML\", choose your language and start
  index.htm with a modern browser (reason: man files are not in 8.3
  format) OR:


  In virtualbox the sound should run without a sound card driver.
  On bare metal and other vms you will have to install sound card
  driver. In my tests mplayer needed at least 64 MB RAM to work
  properly. Copying the files from DVD to HD accelerated the video.
    mplayer example.vob -aid 128   (128 ff should be the languages)
  In Linux you can change the language with "#" - but it freezes
  in FREEDOS when you do so.
