Play the first 30 seconds of a song with mplayer

mplayer -endpos 00:00:30 song.mp3

I have an alarm script that loads a bunch of MP3s and starts playing them in random order in the morning. However, some songs are very long, some of them are boring, etc. So I prefer playing just the first X seconds of each song.

This tip is from here.
