Great! With this player I can enjoy some great new and old songs! Never had that quality on an xm player! Other players can read xm files, but no one better than this!
Continue like this!
I will encourage you forever!!!

XMPlay is great. I'm using it for listening my tracker music collection (common trackers + delix). It is awesome. The only regret is non alpha channeled skins, tabbed play lists and better library organisation. BTW. I love reverb from XMPlay.

Małe rozmiary a maxymalna funkcjonalność - lepszy od winampa, szybciej się ładuje, można przenosić na pendrive - extra.

XMPLAY is th best thing that I found for listening my music (and listen radio internet of course!) Its awsome because I can use it with the MSN when I want to show What I am listening.
And the best thing is that I have a perfect sound using very very low resources from my computer!!! I am crazy... XMPLAY is the best musci player... believe me!

Greetings from PERÚ!

Wecome back, Ian.
xmplay is one of the best online radio player. The only thing keeps me from stopping using other players is that my xmplay library is in a mess at the moment with too many radios, without proper organisation.
If xmplay library can have a kind of drop-down multi-layer menu system, with radios put into different groups according to genre, region etc, xmplay will be the best of the best.
Another radio player I use is Screamer, which has the multi-layer menu system to organise the favorite radio list in an xml format file users can edit themselves. The only weak point is lucking editing functions, thought users can use external text editor to do this.
Hope xmplay can improve the access to the library.
