Open Cubic Player (ocp) is now available under Homebrew for all MacOS X

For whom who doesn’t know what Open Cublic Player (ocp) is, this application is a pure console music player for DOS and *NIX based platform. It was one of the most popular app of the DOS era. Though lacking mouse control and a graphical user interface, many hackers/developers still prefer it to other GUI music players for its light overhead and rich features.

Today, I am delighted to announce that ocp Formula is officially committed into Homebrew repository. I’d like to thank Stian for the great app and for being patient with me on many emails back and forth on fixing nested functions compiling issues with gcc on OSX. To all console lovers out there, you can start trying out this great app right now:

$ brew update
$ brew install ocp
$ ocp

Bugs reports are greatly welcomed. Enjoy!

  1. Looks cool.

    It seems to be missing a dependency on libvorbis though:
    configure: error: “vorbis libraries not found”

    After ‘brew install libvorbis’ it works nicely.

  4. OCP is fun

    macOS 11.3.1, ocp 0.2.2
    got an error on ocp launch:
    devpCA : CoreAudio player…………….[CoreAudio] Unable to initialize Output Unit component (status = -66748 (unknown))
    Super High Quality Quiet Player selected…

    There are articles about deprecated audio API due to changes in macOS SDK 11
