Last updated: 95-02-14
New!!! MPEG CD for Macintosh is now all you need in order to hear
realtime MPEG audio on your Macintosh or decompress an MPEG file to
an easily readable AIFF. All you need to do is download ...
MPEG_CD__1.0.1.sea.bin (480 Kb)
... from URL=//ftp.iuma.com/audio_utils/mpeg_players/Macintosh/
For system requirements for MPEG/CD, read the plain text Readme file.
CONFIGURING NETSCAPE FOR AUTOMATIC PLAYBACK
Yes! You can now have Netscape automatically launch your MPEG audio
player when you click on an MPEG audio file. Just follow these simple
1. Click on Preferences under the Options menu in Netscape.
2. Select Helper Applications from the menu in the Preferences
3. Click on the New... button.
4. Enter audio for the Mime type and x-mpeg for the Mime subtype.
5. Enter mp2 in the Extensions box.
6. Selct MPEG/CD for the Application and choose MPEG as the File
7. Click on Launch application for the Action.
... and that should be it!
