Fraunhofer MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder is a small-sized codec which allows you to play the well-known MP3 audio format.
This codec is considered an experimental version of the LAME MP3 encoding engine, so everyone intending to include it in another program should test it before.
Furthermore, the application has not been developed anymore since 2003
, but this doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t be useful anymore.
Regarding tags, when Fraunhofer MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder is missing, Audio Codec Tag 55 and Audio Codec Tag 85
may be requested.
It can be easily incorporated in other projects and it has been designed mainly for developers.
