mp3...me...now...ouch!!! my ears are bleeding!

 
music mp3 this, mp3 that, mp3 mp3 mp3... it's like the plague!!! there are sooooo mmaaannnyy mp3 programs out there, that i just go numb after awhile. what is most important to me is that: 1) they work 2) they are easy and intuitive to use.    i ain't no rocket scientist, and ease of use is key in my book. i actually enjoy using programs that are more simple and basic in nature, but still do a good job at what you need.
music and what you need are these programs!! that's right my friends, these little programs are all you need to rip, encode, and play mp3s [sorry, i mean mp3z] on your very own computer! but wait, there's more!! did i say more?? why yes, i did say that! not only do you get these programs, but since you are my close, personal, and bestest friend in the whole wide world, you can have these programs for free! now don't look so shocked! that is what freeware is all about!! so don't delay and download today!! and please feel free to visit the homepages of these wonderful programs and give the authors a big sun shiny hello!

music finally, after months of medication, the happy pills have wore off and the bottle is empty! all this means is that each featured program finally has screenshots and my review, which is also located on the screenshots page. yes it would have made more sense to put the reviews on this page and have only the screenshots on the "screenshots page", but then i would have had to buy more happy pills and nothing would ever get done then. oh well, at least my loss is your gain!



desktop nexus
 
desktop nexus seems like a pretty cool place if you need wallpaper for your computer's desktop. i like the layout, i like it's design, you don't need to sign up for anything, and when you click a link for a certain size wallpaper, all that you download is your chosen wallpaper as a jpg file, which you can then set, or not set, as your wallpaper. a very laid back approach giving you maximum freedom. well done.
 

music holy mackerel, i've added something new to this page... a very cool mp3 player was brought to my attention today, [Mon, Oct 07, 2002], it is the Japy mp3 player. the three mp3 players that i have {{and mentioned below the freeamp section}}, are a tad old.... and can not be found on the internet anywhere except here. but i'm happy with them, especially Nad [[and... Nad is my primary mp3 player]]. yet, i know that you internet web browsers are a fickle group and you like bells and whistles and skinnable programs and so many buttons and widgets that my feeble mind can barely comprehend the possible uses for them all.
music so my suggestion to you is to go get the Japy mp3 player v1.6 beta : 3.29MB zipped download. it's a really cool program, and is freeware. also, please note... no screenshots yet due to laziness :)
music the japy website is no longer there, but i downloaded pretty much everything while i could. so as a service to everyone. download what you need from me! it looks like a couple of images are missing from the documentation, but all of the text is there.
music Japy player v1.0.4 : 2.11MB zipped download
music Japy player v1.2 : 4.89MB zipped download
music Japy skin editor and japy utilities program : 2.62MB zipped download
music Japy documentation from the website : 1.13MB zipped download
 
music some music program i tried needed the MSVCRTD.DLL so if you ever need it, you can get it here: it is a 144KB zipped download. i think it was the deli media player that needed it.

mp3 not to be satisfied or out-done! need an audio player that also does it all?!?! go get freeamp or Zinf and they will do it all for you. Zinf is actually based on the freeamp source code.
mp3 Zinf and freeamp are for both linux and windows. They both support MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, WAV and Audio CD playback, SHOUTcast/Icecast HTTP streaming, RTP streaming. Use as a music browser, with theme support and a download manager.
music1 http://www.ipv6.polito.it/multimedia/freeamp-v6.htm was the home page for freeamp v2.1.1 modified to support ipv6. no installation is necessary, just unzip to any folder (like C:\freeamp) and you are ready. scroll down a little to download this program or its source code.
music2 homepage for normal freeamp is http://www.freeamp.org/
music3 homepage for the Zinf player, based on freeamp source code
 
zinf okay, now that you got freeamp, here is how to setup your browser to accept streaming audio music:
freeamp for mozilla or netscape
edit - preferences
Select Helper Applications
freeamp for opera
file - preferences
select file types
freeamp next, for all 3 browsers
Select New Type
In the resulting window, you'll enter the following:
File Extension: m3u,pls
MIME Type: audio/x-mpegurl
Application to use: "c:\program files\zinf\zinf.exe %s"
or
Application to use: c:\freeamp\freeamp.exe %s
or
browse to where the application is and add the %s
 
Now, press OK and you should be off and running
 
zinf very simple! enjoy listening to streaming radio over the internet on open source apps!!
impatient?!?!? download freeamp for windoze here! freeamp v211 ipv6 : 1.77MB download zipped.
please note... no screenshots yet due to laziness :)
zinf source code for freeamp v211 ipv6 : 4.58MB download zipped.
