Pc speaker as sound card

The new driver snd-pcsp in the linux kernel, starting at 2.6.26, lets you use your pc speaker as normal sound card, e.g with good old mplayer:

mplayer -ao alsa:device=hw=pcsp

The sound is of course pretty bad, but also amazingly good when you think about the fact that it's only made beeping. ;-)
