Sounds like a good idea; if you want to continue on showaudio, I'd like to
do the showrdft/spectrum one, so we could replace the ffplay builtin with

The get_screenshot function in mplayer2 might give you some hints:
Also, maybe the other plugins such as XMMS one should give an overview of
the API usage.
Anyway, I think an example like "amovie=a.mp3,asplit[a][out1];
