libopenmpt is a BSD-3-clause-licensed,
cross-platform C and C++ module playback library. It is based on the
player code of the Open ModPlug Tracker project.
Since libmodplug, which is based on an earlier version of the original
ModPlug code base, had been released, the code bases of other ModPlug
descendants (most notably Schism Tracker and Open ModPlug Tracker)
had diverged significantly from the libmodplug code base. libmodplug
did, in our opinion, not maintain pace all that well - especially
regarding playback accuracy in corner cases.
Over the last year, OpenMPT developers refactored the OpenMPT code base
in a way such that a player library can be built separately from the
tracker GUI again, as it had been possible with the original ModPlug
Tracker source code drop by Olivier Lapicque.
In order to avoid possible future source code fragmentation, libopenmpt
is, and will continue to be, developed together with OpenMPT itself in
the same source code repository.
libopenmpt comes together with a stand-alone command-line/terminal-based
player called openmpt123 as well as player plugins for XMPlay
(xmp-openmpt), Winamp (and compatible) (in_openmpt) and
foobar2000 (foo_openmpt). A gstreamer plugin,
gst-nonstream-audio, is currently in the works at
https://github.com/dv1/gst-nonstream-audio. A Debian package is
also being worked on.
