XMPlay Portable v3.8.1.12 Updated

Checker on 30 Apr 2015
  • 626KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by Ed Brownstein

XMPlay is a skinnable audio player that plays all major audio formats and includes gapless playback, effects, equalizer, net streaming. More features are available using plugins available via the product website, including visualizations, more format support, cover art, and more. Note that the library and playlist will not work as you change PCs.

Can play MP3, WMA, M4A, OGG, and more, as well as output to WAV, MP3, and OGG (via external encoders).

Alternatively, XMPlay is natively portable but does not automatically adjust library and playlist paths: download the ZIP package, extract to a folder of your choice, and launch xmplay.exe.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Partial. XMPlay plays audio files with Unicode filenames, but seems capable of displaying only information which is encoded in the current code page i.e. if your current code page is Chinese, it won't be able to display Korean filenames or tags.
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the self-extracting EXE to a folder of your choice. Launch XMPlayPortable.exe.

Euphoria is a nice skin but since it looks too much like AIMP I use Neutron skin, which us rather minimalistic. Splitting Cue sheets into separate tracks was what I missed and why I preferred AIMO/foobar2000. The default skin is a bit old-fashioned but there are so many skins to choose so anyone would find their favourite.

If you need XMPlay version, I have it and uploaded it:!dRcTBSyZ!SLCKecxxKkFzw7Pd4n1fjFEtRwAaqUbdLt-sUkhbIcw
You can download it from any of these two download locations- the file is the same.

freakazoid on 2015-01-02 03:20

smargadus - To clarify, I use Euphoria exclusively in mini mode :)

TP109 - Instead of using the older version, you should report the bug on the forums.

TP109 on 2015-01-03 03:45

@smaragdus Thanks. I downloaded it. BTW, XMPlay archives older versions here:

The problem seems to be related to plugins. It's working now. See post at un4seen forums here:

I agree,minimizing to tray and hotkey would make this perfect.
It works great from my mp3 player.It can use the random playlist the mp3 player generated so I dont miss the random button so much.

lautrepay on 2012-02-05 23:16

I'm afraid that hotkey support is not in the immediate plans of Mr. Pawlowski for Boom: "Noteworthy features currently missing:
Internet radio playback is not supported.
No easy way to integrate with Windows Explorer other than manually going through "open with" / "choose default program" for every relevant file type.
No audio CD playback."
Just a guess, but with this GUI I think the target is touchscreens...

User2100 on 2014-11-29 19:45

There are lighter lightweight players with more features, but this is a single executable player that doesn't seem to "cheat" by using OS decoders. It starts instantly and the interface looks very nice (truly minimalistic and not just tiny and clumped up). I'm very much missing a time slider though. That's not a small feature to leave out of a media player. It only has fast forward and reverse, which is not very useful for things like skimming trough mixes.
