AIMP is a skinnable audio player similar to Winamp that supports most audio formats, as well as Internet radio. Features include a mini-player, colorizing of individual skins, equalizer, visualizations, playlist, global hotkeys, library, and plug-ins capability. The application also includes a built-in tag editor, alarm clock, and auto-shutdown.

Alternatively, AIMP Portable is stealth and automatically adjusts paths.

Just FYI, I've updated my AIMP PA.c version and everything was OK (old skin wasn't changed).

@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.

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.

Been using it for over a year now and the only glitch I see is with playing random tracks. I have thousands of songs / albums, but for some albums, it only ever appears to select the same track and it never plays antyhing else. Looking at the stats on LastFM confirms this. It`s randomnly selecting the same tracks too many times.

Emka on 2015-12-21 16:25

@hamasaki: Have you posted this on their forums? There's an active community, maybe even the dev responds if it's a bug.

hamasaki on 2016-02-20 11:36

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

XMPlay Portable v3.8.2.3 Updated

billon on 15 Mar 2016
  • 626KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Mar 2016
  • 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.

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.

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

TP109 - Instead of using the older version, you should report the bug on the un4seen.com forums.

TP109 on 2015-01-03 03:45

@smaragdus Thanks. I downloaded it. BTW, XMPlay archives older versions here: https://support.xmplay.com/files.php?id=20

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