As Fernando said, Jack needs to be running first. 

1) Start Jack
2) Start Aplaplayer using Jack (alsaplayer -o jack)

Alsaplayer automatically connects it's outputs to Jack and audi is

If you are using the Alsaplayer binaries that Fernando supplies then I'm

then I beleive you'll need to make sure that Jack is included at the
./configure stage.
