MPlayer with bluetooth headphones

Hmmm. Way too complicated probably, but if you can actually get the device to pair and sink it as an audio device, then you can do this: mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetooth and it may or may not require ~/.asoundrc that looks like

pcm.bluetooth {
    type bluetooth
}

I heard audio at least one time from my headphones via mplayer that way...at least before the batteries ran out. Open question: Why doesn't it just show up like a normal alsa device? Meh.
