I don't think a player is what is required as much as hooks into existing
applications/players. There's an older plug-in for XMMS (is it being
maintained??) and Christian released a Windows codec so you can use speex
in the WAVE container.

What were you planning on developing it with? I'm actually in the process
of encoding several conference CDs with 1.0.1 and will volunteer my
services/desktops to help test it.
