Default Encoding and Decoding works fine -- but how to PLAY it???

Hi everybody,

I stumbled over MPC-encoded files on many occasions on the internet and I really appreciate that there is a high quality audio compression codec which is better than MP3. Quality is very important to me...

I am a Mac (and Linux) user (and will always be, as I hate Window$...). Encoding .WAV-Files to MPC works just fine on my Mac, and decoding back to .WAV is also no problem. BUT: What point ist there in encoding music if there is absolutely no way to *play* it???!!!

Or am I missing something? Is there any way to play back .MPC-files on a Mac? An iTunes plugin would be perfect of course, but any other way would also be appreciated...

Thanks for any help, Andreas

You're not missing a thing. No one has made a plugin for iTunes or any Mac player yet.

you'll need xmms built on the mac to and mppdec to playback musepack.

also, you could try actually building libmusepack and the xmms-plugin statically (since they now have autotools) - TrN was unsuccessful with the earlier xmms-plugins...

i'd also be interested in knowing if the decoder will output to sound device on a mac (i dunno)
