    Play Mp3...

    Is there anyway I can play an Mp3/Wav file from the command line (from an app either with a function or a system call) preferably cross platform compatible (Linux & Win32).

    Cross platform is going to be tough.

    For Windows PlaySound() will play a wave file.

    MP3's have to be decoded. So you could launch an MP3 player program from your program. I dunno if windows comes with an MP3 player... I would think Windows Media Player plays MP3's (?) Or, you'd have to find a sample or open-source program to write your own MP3 decoder/player.

    Media Player plays MP3s so does Winamp.
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.

    Hmm, just out of curiosity, how difficult is it to write your own MP3 decoding/playing code?
    Just Google It. √
