Cool! I know about [mp3cast~] and it seems still to work (at least for

Are its dependencies already built-in or are they supposed to be

From what I can tell, its author is responsive to requests. I tried
only on Linux and the situation is a bit simpler there, because gavl
and gemrlin-avdec can be installed by package manager (and readanysf~
is even in the repos of Debian based distros). I guess the hard part is
to build those libraries on Windos (and maybe on macOS). I suspect it's
crashing on Windows and macOS because it is linked to missing
libraries, but that's just guess.

It's definitely interesting to having something cross-platform like

Are there sources available already? I didn't find anything on GitHub.
