Any progress?
Would be sad if this app would be filed in the dusty stack of lost-in-found

What do you guys consider the main missing features at this point for a basic player?  I need to fix some crash bugs still.

I sold my G5 a while ago so I'm working mainly on a G4 laptop that I don't pull out as often.  That's the main reason I haven't made as much progress recently as I did at first.

I would think the basic point and great mission of this player are to provide best possible playback support for those formats who have hitherto been unsupported/poorly supported on OS X platform... So I would think polishing and perfection of e.g. MusePack and WavPack playback complete with tag display and replaygain and such would naturally be the prime target for development focus, aming at getting the player to proper release state... (So that I can say to OS X user complaining on unplayability of MPC files: "Ah, go download Xist!". - I know I can do that today, but lot's of those people won't trust alpha software who don't even got a proper, slick web-page....) "Nifty" features can come later...

First of all, seeking would be at least great.
Not very difficult to implement, AFAIK.

My brain's been getting fried by a sudden glut of real work at work so I don't have much juice left for more programming when I get home.

Looks like this will let up a bit in a few weeks.  I'll try and get some of this stuff nailed down then.

Out of curiosity, is the source for this thing available?

This code bears the scars of my attempts to learn Cocoa so I can't vouch for it.  I'll probably do a cleanup pass at some point in the future.

My apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but any chance this project's still alive somewhere? I'm rather limited when it comes to musepack on OS X solutions at the moment.

A list with aplications supporting Musepack can be found here.
I guess most of them support only sv7, though.

Unfortunately Play seems to have bad memory leaks (balloons to 1.5 GB RAM here), but Cog does a better job. Thanks for the suggestions.
