Using MusePack/MPEGplus in XMMS on OS X UNIX
This is currently a topic of discussion at HydrogenAudio, and you should check there for updates. HydrogenAudio takes OS X seriously, and have produced some nice utilities, including an optimized version of the MusePack encoder.

Anyway, a workaround to the problem is to use Fink's mppdec with the Meta plugin from This allows you to write XMMS plugins using external applications. The only caveat is that playback is not truly gapless, and there is no way to seek. I'm using the following shell script as my MPC decoder:

switch ($1)
  case play:
    mppdec "$2" -
    exit 0
  case isOurFile:
    if ( { ( head "$2" | xxd | grep 'MP+' ) } ) then
     ĂŠexit 0
      exit -1
exit -1
