Milko! Milko! Oh sorry. Hey, Isn't this pretty much the same idea as the Google OS, only running on Windows (which has all those items already?)
Not saying anything about the looks or function of it, whatever floats your boat.

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...

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.

If it would include the stream buffering and recording functionalities that it still misses, Winyl would easily replace my current preferred webradio client -- which still is RadioSure (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1520)...

Midas on 2014-05-14 10:02

As advised in the changelog post, if you'd prefer a new skin with large font, check http://vinylsoft.com/forum/index.php?topic=8497.msg9399#msg9399 ...
