FhG IIS WinPlay3

WinPlay3 2.3 WinPlay3 was developed by the creators of the MP3 standard - the Fraunhofer Institute. It was the first real-time MP3 player.

It had few features - no playlists, no equalizer, no tagging support - but it did what it was meant to do. Among the options, you could set up CPU class - pentium or 486 - and output frequency. While it doesn't make much sense today, when it is hard to find computers with less than 1GHz of CPU clock, that was a very useful feature back in 1995 (when version 1.0 was released) since 486s were still common.

The first versions (1.x series) were distributed as shareware and required a registration fee of DM 75,00 (~US$ 50,00). The 2.3 versions were made freeware.

There are versions available for Win16 (Windows 3.x) and Win32.

After version 2.3b5 FhG stopped developing WinPlay3. The web page can still be accessed at the Internet Archive, here.
