mpg123 is a real time MPEG Audio Player for Layer 1,2 and Layer3
mpg123 is a real time MPEG Audio Player for Layer 1,2 and Layer3. (MPEG 2.0 with Layer1/2 not heavily tested) Tested with Linux, FreeBSD, SunOS4.1.3, Solaris 2.5, HPUX 9.x and SGI Irix.
Plays Layer 3 in stereo on an AMD-486-120Mhz or (of course) a faster machine. (Just for info: mpg123 plays an average 128bps stream, with about 66% in full quality on my AMD 486-133MHz machine).
The project is not maintained at the moment and there are some serious security problems in the latest player versions. It is highly recommended to not use the source code you can download from this site.
What's New in This Release:
There are bugfixes along with some improvements in error handling and playback.
Enhancements were made for the AltiVec code and the i486 code.
The Some issues were resolved in the build system.
mpg123 should now build out of the box on Cygwin (though not with assembler opts).
