The MP3 player was invented in 1997 by Tomislav Uzelac of Advanced Multimedia Products (AMP). The digital audio MP3 player was called the AMP MP3 Playback Engine. This was the very first, successfully designed MP3 Player.

Shorty after the creation, two college students, Dmitry Boldyrev and Justin Frankel coded the AMP technology over to a Windows based application, better known as "Winamp". Winamp, to this day, continues to be a license free MP3 Player.
