Well, I don't say that it would be impossible. If MPlayer could use the cue
file as a kind of playlist and would play skippingly then and had a duration
option (which AFAIK it hasn't), it would be possible to play any supported
format given in a cue file.

Actually, I don't know what exactly you are trying to achieve. My goal was to
simulate a (one day non-existing) CDROM device by using a bin/cue file:

Rip with cdrdao:

  cdrdao read-cd --device /dev/hdc --read-raw --datafile cd.bin cd.toc

Convert the results:

  dd conv=swab if=cd.bin of=cd_swap && mv cd_swap cd.bin
  toc2cue cd.toc cd.cue

Now play the CD with gmplayer (CD -> Play):

  gmplayer -cdrom-device cd.cue

You can select individual tracks and jump back and forth (as you can with a
real CDROM device).
