there's an MP3 player for 68k hardware but does not open. I read that there was a fixed version but it is no longer hosted. does anyone have a copy of this app that works?

Check out the MP3 thread that has good info about the different players:

I did. There was a user that fixed one that wasn't working out of the box, he recompiled it to work and hosted it but the link is broken.

I sent a PM to Brian to ask if he can re-post the code.  Hopefully he'll get back to us; if not then maybe someone can follow his instructions and recompile the code.

Good because I'm too much of a noob to do it myself. I've tried and failed miserably

Hello: I downloaded this one http://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Software/NEXTSTEP/Apps/Audio/  , i installs under previous , then bombs on launch , it may be because it is looking for shared libraries unavailable on Previous that would be on Black Hardware . Best Regards Rob Blessin

If it's "mp3player1.1" it's original makefile was compiled for the Japanese version of NEXTSTEP by mistake. A user recompiled it with the makefile edited to {Japanese= No} and it worked for him.
It crashes on launch otherwise.

I don't have the knowhow to compile source code on Next.

Brian responded and said that he's out of town at the moment, but will look for the files when he gets home in a few days.

It'll be nice to have this thing as a jukebox.

Ok, Brian (bkmoore) went out of his way to get this working, thanks Brian!  He couldn't find the MP3Player files so he recompiled the app quad-fat on Previous.  Once it's confirmed to work I'll write up a readme file giving Brian credit, and I'll mark the old app Japanese.

The new MP3Player app can be found in the Archives:

Since MP3Player is a GUI frontend for nxmp3play, you'll need that too:

Now that the MP3 patents have expired, I wonder if Frank Siegert would be willing to release the source code for the latest nxmp3play so that it could be compiled quad-fat too.  Hmmmm.

It works perfectly on my 040 cube! No next dimension board or anything:)
