Mcplay is not just another fontend for mpg123. It is also just another frontend for many other players (ogg123, sox, drvmidi). It is able to adjust the soundmixer's volume and it is able to read and write playlist files (*.m3u). And it has support for infrared controls via lirc.
The word 'mcplay' stands for "my cool player" or "my cloned player" since it is a C-clone of the excellent program 'cplay' which is written in python.
Mcplay is published under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2.
