AudioPlayer is a DirectShow based media player capable of playing MP3, MPGA, WAV, AU, WMA and ASF sound files as well as WPL, ASX, WMX, WAX and M3U playlists. OGG and FLAC support can be added by downloading and installing the codecs from illiminable.com (850 KB)
AudioPlayer also utilizes streaming Internet media so you can listen to files from the net without changing applications.
Volume and file seeking controls allow you to find and listen to the best parts of the music at a sound level to suit you. A handy mute option also provides silence on demand without stopping the music.
AudioPlayer also has your computers’ health and multi-tasking at heart. Taking up only 86 KB of hard disk space (even less on compressed NTFS drives) and typically using 50-90% less CPU power with 2 to 5 times less memory usage than Windows Media Player 10, AudioPlayer allows you to use your computers resources the way you want. Now there’s more, you can minimize AudioPlayer into the system tray which removes the taskbar button freeing up precious real estate.
Wait, that’s not all. After you’ve finished your work and listening to the best choons, you need to shutdown your computer in the time honoured way of going to the “Start” button. Not no more; Audioplayer has built in functions so at the click of just one button, you can log off, restart, or completely shut down your PC.
So what’s the catch? Simple, there isn’t one. Completely free and full functionality today, tomorrow, in 30 days, next year, forever.
Written in C and pure Win32. Requires DirectX 6 or above, Internet Explorer 4 or above, and MSXML 2 or above
