The SurePlayer project is an open source initiative founded to develop and
promote a non-proprietary, standards compliant, Java-based MPEG video player.
SurePlayer 1.0 was written and
released in April 23, 2001. It integrates several open-source projects to
form a complete MPEG-1 audio/video player.
Alan Blount runs the SurePlayer.org site. He is CTO of BYOBroadcast.
Mat McGowan of JavaZoom.net wrote JavaLayer, a MPEG layer 1,2, and 3 audio player in Java in 1997.
Tobias Bading wrote maplay, a 'C' MPEG audio player, on which JavaLayer was based.
