PlayIt is a tool for playing sound samples, which is used by a number of RISC OS applications, including DigitalCD. Originally written by Rick Hudson, recent updates have been made available by Christopher Martin, who has just released version 1.73.
This version is able to recognise more Replay/ARMovie files that contain audio formats that it supports, in addition to which it also includes a RISC OS 4 fast service handler, along with a slight improvement in its overall performance. Christopher recommends that all users upgrade to this version.
Offering thanks to Rick Hudson and Andrew Rawnsley for making the sources available, and to Willi Theiss and Jeffrey Lee for their contributions, Christopher also asks that users do not attempt to contact Rick with questions about PlayIt because he left the RISC OS scene some time ago.
