This is a music player for the Sony PSP powered by FFMpeg which means you can play all audio codecs from any container format supported by ffmpeg. This also makes use of the PSP's hardware decoders for some codecs.

It is featured at the Neo Retro Coding Compo 2011 (App, 3rd place).

User guide

Developer stated that only stereo signed 16bit audio with the ff. sample rates will play correctly: 48000, 44100, 32000, 24000, 22050, 16000, 12000, 11050, 8000.

Also only MP3, WMAv2 (only from WMA files) and AAC (except from AAC files) are hardware accelerated.

The following formats have been tested by the delveoper:

  • MP3 (MP3, FLV).
  • AAC (AAC, MP4, M4A).
  • WMAv2 (WMA).
  • FLAC (FLAC).
  • Signed 16bit PCM (WAV).

Configuration files are inside the ini folder. See settings.ini (cpu.ini holds file names that will be opened by the file browser for playing. Not all formats are listed in it but you can add your own extensions).
