Pureplayer is an open source minimal audio reproduction software and nothing more.
Based on "do one thing at a time" and "Ram is the best playback source" concepts,
it rips and decodes the audio tracks, loads the wav file produced in memory, closes every handle to the file and then starts playback. This player introduces a delay
before any kind of playback because of the separate serialized playback tasks (rip/decode - load to ram - close file - play). Created due to the need of something
straightforward and simple that does not affect the source audio information in any way, targeting in "listening" and not "control", it is not intended for power mouse
users or track sampling sessions.
It is not fully debugged (yet), but please report only bugs that really create problems when enjoying your music.
Files supported (directly or not): cda, wav, ape, mp3, flac, aac, mpc and several more...

The pure C core code (flacplay.exe) was written in Digital Systems Team's Lab (dst.phys.uoa.gr) by Kostas Nakos (email@example.com) and me,
the intermediate API (DOS commands) by me and the UI - visualization (VB.NET) by impel123(firstname.lastname@example.org) and me.
Flacplay_wasapi.exe has been modified by Cristian Rus in order to play all high rez files.
