Pocket Player is an audio player for Pocket PC. The company behind it, Conduits, has released since version 2.51 a SDK that allows the development of decoding plugins for this player.

Since the musepack project is now open source, it shouldn't be too complicated for someone (Lefungus comes to my mind wink.gif) to make a musepack decoder for Pocket Player. This would make the PocketPC the first widely available portable platform to support MPC.

The SDK page is here.

Both AeroPlayer and Pocket Tunes, for Palm OS, can be extended through plug-ins, although I have not seen it in practice yet.

I'd love some HE/LC-AAC player. An MPC-player would be also very nice.

I have contacted the developers of both programs. Pocket Tunes developer said he would send me a sample API some time ago. When I recently sent an email to him again, I was told he was on vacation. So don't count on Pocket Tunes for MPC support.

AeroPlayer developers sounded more interested, and asked me a bunch of questions, which I did my best to answer. But I haven't heard from them since. It seems like they're planning something though.

We talked about it and we'll certainly look into it when we get some time.

It's disappointing, because the developpers of Pocket Tunes seem very open to costumers and, eventually, other developpers. They even run a mail list, where they listen to a lot of suggestions and complaints.
