I dont think it would be faster because everytime you start a new shell session, the shell have to read through the startup script file (perhaps alias file as well) again

    Assume the filename is playlist. Also note that "#!/bin/sh" must begin on line 1, column 1.
  • Add executable rights to the file:

    $ chmod +x playlist
You can just put

mplayer -playlist r1live.ram

into the file playlist and do

bash/sh playlist

Im sure you recognize it raises a fairly serious security issue here
