gtk123 is a frontend for mpg123, mpg321, and other mp3 players that use the same command-line format. It should be possible to use gtk123 in situations where most other MP3 players would be ineffective due to lack of CPU power. gtk123 is being developed and tested on a 486DX4/75 laptop. On such a system, it can be somewhat unresponsive when decoding VBR, but CBR works well (at least in mono mode).
