How can I save the output of mplayer?

For example, if to play slowly an mp3 file, I use mplayer -speed 0.6 file.mp3. However, mplayer -speed 0.6 file.mp3 > file2.mp3 won't save the output to a file (which should be just the same, but slower).

Any alternative command-line solution is welcome too, I am not tied to mplayer.

Try mencoder instead:

mencoder -speed 0.6 -o output_file file.mp3

    @nwildner It sure seems to. mplayer and mencoder are part of the same toolkit, and the question even says "Any alternative command-line solution is welcome too, I am not tied to mplayer." – Michael Mrozek Apr 2 '15 at 17:03
  • I agree, it seems a very appropriate answer, though I could have expanded on the audio-specific options of mencoder. I'm not too invested in the competition, just trying to help. – Joshua Lokken Apr 2 '15 at 19:17
