Sm - mplayer wrapper with resume and more

This is a wrapper I use to play media files. If I quit I can restart, a big plus.


# Title......: sm
# Description: show media
# Author.....: Mitchell Johnston - uid 0
# Contact....:

# variables
LOG=/var/tmp/$(basename $@).out

# functions
xtitle()  ## sets window title
    printf "\033]0; [$*] \007"

# main
[ ! -f $@ ] && cd ~/videos    # if no args go to main video directory
xtitle $(basename $1)  # set title to file being played
if [ -f $LOG ]         # if it has been played before restart at quit point
        END=$(strings $LOG|tail -4|head -1 | cut -d: -f2|cut -dV -f1)
        mplayer -ss $END -msgcolor -use-filename-title -softvol -softvol-max 300 -vo xv $@ | tee $LOG
        mplayer -msgcolor -use-filename-title -softvol -softvol-max 300 -vo xv $@ | tee $LOG

## removes files and log
echo -n "Delete $1 ? "
read ANS
if      [ "$ANS" == "y" ] 
        \rm $1 $LOG
        echo -n "Delete $LOG ? "
        read ANS2
        [ "$ANS2" == "y" ] && \rm $LOG

[ -f $1 ] && ls -l $1
[ -f $LOG ] && ls -l $LOG
clear; vids .      # This is another script that lists media files w/ play time

Let me know if you find this of use, or have questions.
