Thanks for the update. Good old school mp3 player!

#116 - Daniel R rated this file 5 stars on 2022-10-10, 12:49:49
The best mp3 and flac player for the Windows platform. The lightest on resources among all existing players around (cpu time and memory footprint), and the most responsive (latency time). No unnecessary functionality/bloat. Keep up the good work!

I had been looking for a super lightweight music player and I can finally use my **** 2008 Netbook Win7 Starter as music server! Windows Media Player was asking too much from it and the tracks kept jumping. Thanks!

#83 - Jaromir rated this file 5 stars on 2021-12-07, 12:05:28
Great Program! I would just like to suggest the implementation of the possibility to show track info window and playlist window at once - without switching. That would allow us to have Playlist and cover art displayed together for example.

I've been using XMplay since ever. In that time it was the only precise player of XM modules for Windows. Portable and powerful, even today it's my favourite music player.

It sounds tremendous. It does not produce acoustic stress.
I just tested against winamp and cannot believe the difference. I dont know were is the trick but it sounds like "acousticly balanced" and "high softened fidelity".
It is superlightweight and options panel is not copmplicated.
Now I have to customize it. wow.. thank you man. Great work.
