Krita shell play external audio helper scripts

Greetings. I couldn’t find anywhere a script to play external audio and thought about making my own. I at first considered using python and the python API, but ended up creating a very primitive shell/BATCH script that does the same thing. It’s very simple, just modify as the instructions say and run it in the terminal, then when it hits 0 and the file is playing in the audio player of your choice, press play on the timeline to watch the audio perfectly play with the movie. It can’t play at specific timeframes, but since krita animation projects are supposed to be 10 minutes max and you split a movie into a series of projects, this is fine. Advice on improvements is always welcome.
