MXP3 v1.2, Flash MP3 Player (no longer works due to flash updates)
Author: Justin Black

My senior year of high school I worked on a senior capstone project in macromedia flash, as part of that project I was using Flash’s mp3 player capabilities, which were fairly new at the time. I thought the mp3 capabilities were so neat, that I developed a stand-alone flash mp3 player.

I was quite active in flash actionscript programming forums, and I posted my
source code for my mp3 player online on the forums, which was one of the first open source
flash mp3 players. It was well received and helped people develop their own mp3 players. I titled my flash player MXP3, because I built it in Macromedia Flash MX.

My MP3 Player’s Features:

the player
