    Design MP3 Player

    Hi Have got a project to be done. Have to design an MP3 player using C.

    Can anyone help me from where to start, what to review, etc.

    Following to use :
    Language : C,
    Compiler : GCC ,
    O.S. : Ubuntu

    I am good with C and its basics.

    Well I guess you will have to implement a user interface, so since you're under Ubuntu, I'd suggest using the GTK+ library.

    I did a similar project some years ago, and for playing MP3 I was using the FMOD library.

    I think that's all you need.

    Hope this helps.

    For the graphical part, GTK+ is open source so you can dig in their source code, but I think you'll need a lot of time if you wish to implement your own graphical interface without external library (I wouldn't advise you to do that).
    Unfortunately FMOD is not open source, so I guess you would need either to find an open source library to render MP3, either try to find some documentation about how the audio drivers work in Ubuntu, and how to decode MP3, but again, I wouldn't advise you to do that because it will take you a lot of time, while it is quite easy when using an external library.

    Thanx again man, I get it, its difficult, last time I designed some backup application for windows, I used some API's and the things worked out great for me, But even after completing it m feeling a little unsatisfactory, so was thinking to do everything on my own this time,but if it takes too much time, I will use the libraries, let see how far my curiosity takes me, ha ha ha ..
