mpg321 is a Free clone of mpg123, a command-line MP3 player. It is designed to be a drop-in replacement for mpg123, and therefore its interface has been designed around that of mpg123, without using any of its code. mpg321 has been designed for use with frontends such as gqmpeg, although it is just as useful on the command-line. Unlike mpg123, it supports ESD and ALSA output without recompiling, and it does all MP3 decoding with only fixed-point math by using the mad MPEG audio decoder library.

Release Notes: This release fixes segfaults that occurred when using the -k option with MP3s that had an incomplete set of ID3 tags, and now falls back on other devices (such as from the sound card to esound) if the default device can't be opened.
Release Notes: Shoutcast support, ID3 tag support, better network support, a fix for the bug that caused gtoaster to break with mpg321, and other bugfixes were added.
Release Notes: All streams are now always played in full. Line buffering in remote control mode is now supported (remote-control interface is no longer serial). --stereo option is now supported to force stereo output. Carious correctness, portability, and bugfixes were added.
Release Notes: Mono output function re-added.
Release Notes: Much higher output sound quality because of a new, experimental dithering routine, a new (non-mpg123) option to skip printing frame status in verbose modes, and other major and minor bugfixes and compilation/portability fixes.
