Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #18980 (April 24th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #18980 (April 24th 2024) (x86 only)

NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Otachan in_mpg123 - includes source code.
« on: April 01, 2022, 12:00:00 PM »!mpg123.html

Was having a bit of a look in the internet archive and grabbed the link to Otachans in_mpg123.

It's nice in that the archive contains source code as well.

The license is LGPL.

I've attached it here.   It looks like there is also Shibatch mpg123, which is a patched version of this, I don't have this to hand right now.

I'd ruled out using that as fork/basis as it needs too much doing to remove dependencies & other things I'm not happy with it from testing.

I am however probably going to be doing an mpg123 based solution since a current version of it is already bundled with WACUP for some of the plug-ins.

The other talk had been an ffmpeg based solution though that's a pain to custom compile from what I've tried though I need to come back to it to get my vgmstream build offering full feature support (the ffmpeg DLLs are chunky by default & duplicate too much with what I already provide so I'd like to do a custom build that can share my libraries without duplication). Or a toggle to switch between either as I cannot use what winamp did as they'd licensed the official Fraunhofer MP3 decoder & afaict that's not been released generically.
