New audio codec supporting Motorola 68K/PPC-based computers
The Musepack (MPC) audio codec has finally completed its transition to the open source world.|
The official website contains highly portable LGPL-licensed source code with floating and fixed-point math modes which can be easily compiled on AmigaOS/MorphOS.
Also included is the complete SV7-1.15r codec source (including encoder) which can also be compiled on AmigaOS/MorphOS.
Musepack's outstanding sound quality has been proven several times on public listening tests, as well as outstanding speed.
All the details and links can be found on the official site: www.musepack.net

"which amiga/mos-players supports this format?"
Probably none so far. It would be most useful if implemented as a library, like mpega.library, which all programs could use.

Mabe a (MOS Native) datatype would be handy.

|So give it to me so I can extend TheMPegEncGUI with an encoder and decoder and possibly a player then! :-)|
I couldn't find anything about PPC or 68k in the archive I found at www.musetech.net. Where is this source. Or even better: Has anyone compiled a 68k version yet that I can try?! (I'm not too good with gcc)

This library can be compiled without modifications to several os/arch already:
Complete success has also been reported on PPC970/SPARC64/MIPS/VAX archs.
So it's not really a matter to *port* the code but more adding it to the current amigaos media players.

I'm in charge of PR for the project. If you have any questions regarding the source and/or compiling, feel free to write to my address on the http://www.musepack.net site (Contacts section) or join the 'User' IRC channel. I own Amigas and I know the source is compilable and runs pretty nicely on PPCs (a 40 MHz 040 could easily handle decoding too, but it hasn't been tested, to my knowledge). CISC (of MorphOS fame) already compiled the decoder binary for use on a PowerUp card, using an earlier source. The source available on the site now is much easier to work with.
