XMPlay Portable v3.8.2.3

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.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder

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.

@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:

There's a v3.8.2.3 available.

I used to use WinAmp (over the years became bloated and tool forever to load), then tried Cool Player (good, but not enough features for me). XM Player is the perfect balance - super fast, reliable (so far), flexible, and customizable. J.U.S.T. Perfect!

Winyl is nice, what I miss (as usual) is support for Cue sheets, as far as I remember the developer once promised to implement it in the future but this future hasn't come yet.

@smaragdus: from the latest changelog, looks like your request has (finally) been granted... :)

smaragdus on 2016-01-28 05:42

@Midas
Yes! I am glad I did a small contribution to the development of Winyl by testing it with some Cue sheets. The developer is a very helpful guy and he fixed all the problems some Cue sheets caused.

has its flaws, for one the hot keys are off, 'ctrl + alt + num 7' to pause, 'ctrl + alt + num 0' for play.. i would rather press just one key e.g. space for pause/play, enter for stop/play.. unfortunately i cannot find a way to set such a hotkey. a minor quirk the main interface is only fully skinned, the playlist, visuals isn't and it uses a bit of memory 9 + megs, some good things are the sound quality, and it being easily skinned. i'd say given a few more releases this will be something to look out for.

This is 'THE' best media player that i've found yet. I'm so impressed with it that i've just made a donation.

I'd recommend it, in fact, I 'DO' Recommend it!.
