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.
