I am doing this little experiment in cron, but not able to make it work.
I want cron to play a certain mp3 file at a certain time. So I add the
usual time parameters and add the following to the command field:
/usr/bin/ffplay <path to my mp3 file>
But cron mails me an error which I have attached as text file.
I also tried "/bin/bash /usr/bin/ffplay <path to my mp3 file>" but it
does not work.
Where am I going wrong?
When I simply give the following command from terminal, it plays the
ffplay <mp3 file>
