amp-0.7.6: description + notes

Extracted from the README:

1. Introduction

amp (Audio Mpeg Player) is an MPEG audio decoder which I originally started putting together as a side project of the MPEG hardware design project at FER/Zagreb - just to confirm my knowledge of the standard. It works with both MPEG1 and MPEG2 audio streams (except for the multichannel extensions defined in MPEG2), layers 2 and 3.

There is a gui for amp, written in Tcl/Tk by Edouard Lafargue. It is available at the amp home site

Another gui supported is the Sajber Jukebox, written by Joel Lindholm.

The following people contributed their time and knowledge to amp: Karl Anders Oygard, Ilkka Karvinen, Lutz Vieweg, Dan Nelson, Edouard Lafargue, Andrew Richards, George Colouris, Dmitry Boldyrev, Andy Lo A Foe, Thomas Sailer, Justin Frankel
