Hi all:

I have written a cross-platform music player. (http://hypnosplayer.org). It
current relies upon VLC to do its audio-decoding, but I have some issues
there and I don't like using a library that's so heavy to decode audio.

I came across Sox as a potential suitable replacement, but I have no
familiarity with the project. Do you think it could be a good backend for
this project?

Thanks!

Josh Hartwell

I use it for dtas (duct-tape audio suite) which includes dtas-player
and it's great (gapless playback, lots of formats and effects
with live-EQ/compander/any-other-effects-supported-by-sox-or-ladspa):

	git clone https://80x24.org/dtas.git

It's heavily-dependent on *nix pipes and process management,
though.  I assume libsox is nice for cross-platform use, too;
since the sox(1) command uses it.  But I prefer to do my
work in scripting languages rather than C whenever possible.

Hi Josh,

my recommendation: Go for it! It is a better way for audio than VLC. If 
you are interested in a more special way of "pure" audio, use a 
cross-plattform realtime project like rtaudio:

Regards
Thomas
