Stopping mplayer from displaying Album Art on Music or Podcasts

I use mplayer as my media player of choice. If it discovers embedded album art in the media files, it will display them as a popup window. To prevent this from happening you can use the switch -vo null which will tell it to ignore video output. For example.

mplayer -vo null /mnt/SANZA_KEN/PODCASTS/TuxJam_44.ogg
