Well, personally I prefer feature-rich software. Moving Keppi to the direction of a music player isn't a problem. (However, I don't tend to implement player features unless someone requests them.)
Generally I prefer rich software too but I also enjoy simple stuff ("one thing well"-style, for example Textify).
Will adding support for more formats be meaningful to you? Do you use lossless audio formats?
I think that some control (play/pause/stop) plus drag&drop will add a bit of flexibility and handiness.
I like the name of the program- keppi sounds cool. By the way I know a single word in Finnish- kotka (because of the city). Curiously kotka means cat in my language and because I love cats I was rapturous when I first heard about this city and that was why I checked the meaning.

No. If it was, I'd have added support for more formats already.

Just FLAC. My music library is in the following formats:
  • AAC in MP4 container
  • MP3 in raw .mp3 files
  • Few FLAC files (I got them as a reimbursement after an online music store failed to deliver a track I purchased)
Keppi already supports all of those formats.

Heh. :)

Yes, they can, through a wrapper called Bass.Net. Since you requested support for additional audio formats (and FLAC on <Win10), I'll look into integrating it.
All right, I have investigated the possibility.

BASS is not an option.

The problem is that BASS is a closed source library. I can't bundle it with Keppi as long as I distribute Keppi in SourceForge. In addition, using Bass.Net requires applying for a registration key.

Keppi 3.50 released. :D I implemented two feature requests from smaragdus and made a bunch of other improvements. Full changelog:
  • Added play, pause and stop buttons.
  • Added ability to open files with drag and drop.
  • The visualization is now pixel perfect even with a high-DPI display.
  • Keppi is now per monitor DPI aware.
  • Greatly improved efficiency with a large window, especially at 4K.
    This means lower CPU+GPU usage and potentially higher FPS.
  • If Keppi launches off-screen because you have used it on a PC with different
    monitor configuration, you can now move it to the top-left corner of the
    primary screen by pressing Ctrl-G.
  • Fixed: the updater started to hang after the youtube-dl 2017.09.24 update.

Keppi 3.70 released. The youtube-dl updater stopped working in February, and this update fixes it. Full changelog:
  • .NET Framework 4.5 is now required instead of 4.0.
  • Fixed: the updater failed to check for updates starting from February 22.
  • Fixed crash when Keppi doesn't find any playable network streams.
  • Updated SharpDX to 4.0.1 and LitJSON to 0.12.0.
The reason for the update check failure was that GitHub disabled TLS <1.2 that day (youtube-dl's update file is stored there). That's also why I had to increase the .NET requirement: TLS 1.2 support was introduced in .NET Framework 4.5.
