     This code demonstrates how MPEG-Layer 3 (MP3) files are read by programs like WinAmp and Windows Media Player. Note this code uses no Windows API calls, DLLs, or OCXs. This is the *RAW*, *VERY UNREFINED* CODE for reading and playing MP3s. It contains no examples, but is based on FreeAmp, so if you want an example, FreeAmp is as close as you're going to come. I do plan on creating an example sometime later on, but for now, here's the code that everyone's wanted. =) I can't take credit for this code, though. The ORIGINAL MP3 decoding algorithms were written by the Fraunhaufer Institute. Oh yeah, while I'm at it, vote for me! =)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
