By the author of Ubiquitous Player:

I've decided to stop updating this program. In 3 years I received exactly zero feedback on it, so I guess no one really uses it.

Thanks.

So ... is this program being actively developed again now?

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

@Enternal
Ugliness always make me shiver and nauseate of disgust. By the way I am not using AIMP version 3 default skin Pandemic but Siveria. I have added several Winamp add-ons which work with AIMP 3 (for example for playing LA files) but I am not sure that they will be compatible with version 4 (most likely they will be). I have no reason whatsoever to update to version 4 since AIMP 3 can play all the formats I need. More- there is a moral problem- for me updating to version 4 means succumbing to the ubiquitous modern evil of flat ugliness while choosing not to update means that I refuse to accept the developer's detestable taste. If I saw AIMP version 4 for the first time I would have never bothered to test it.

Great player! Thanx for sharing....

smaragdus REALLY? wow I didn't realize that looks over substance was so important to sum people. Now I'm curious what others think about the "looks" of V4 or if most just don't care like me, please don't misunderstand I understand how you feel its just foreign 2me is all I'm saying. Of course if V3 suits your needs then by all means that's the correct version for you to use, no matter what I or others think. Enjoy.:)

Foobar2000 is an audio player with low memory footprint and native support for most popular audio formats. It includes CD ripping, format conversion, replay gain, audio normalization, equalization, and more. Playlist display and keyboard shortcuts are both very customizable.

A file format conversion tool is available, but must be enabled with external downloads. Can even fix some MP3s with corrupted file headers.

Windows 2000 is no longer supported but users can download the last compatible version: 0.9.4.

@Emka, sorry for the delay. No, I didn`t post on the forums.

Great player, especially with a few tweaks. I use Meier crossfeed[1] together with Dolby surround emulation[2]. What this does is it spreads the sound out, as if you're listening to a live performance, and greatly reduces ear strain when listening with headphones (which I do 99% of the time). Other pluses are that it uses my own music directory structure, is very fast (opens in a snap), and it uses windows native look instead of someone's idea of a great skin.

@shnbwmn: FYI, Viper4Windows is a free general purpose Windows sound processor that includes similar tweaks, among many others... (V4W homepage appears to be having issues currently, but Softpedia has it: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Other-AUDIO-Tools/ViPER4Windows.shtml). Also available as Viper4Android.
