QuickTime audio and video files from the command line. It excels
at playing audio files without any visual baggage.
Very small footprint. The program is under 25KB in size.
Segment playback. Specify precisely, using a textual
description, a segment of the file to be played, possibly with
Audio-only playback of files containing video. Disable all video
content of a file so that only the audio portion is played.

and fast forward keys on the keyboard to control playback.
