Thie "system" command in R takes the first argument and passes that to
the shell in which R is running.
1) I run R in the bash shell under Fedora Linux version 30
2) I have installed "mplayer" as an audio/visual player that can be
called from the bash shell
3) The command I pass says "Start the mplayer program using the first
argument as the file to process.
One method is to find the easiest way to play an audio/visual file on
your system and then call it from R using "system".
Other ways using R packages have been suggested by other respondents.
