AIMP

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

AIMP

#1 Post by eldad » Mon Oct 01, 2007 7:10 am

Hi all,
I found an advanced multimedia player that includes an audio converter, recorder, and tag editor. Includes an easy to use interface, small size and minimal use of system resources.

Used Universal Extractor on the EXE I downloaded from the author's site:
http://www.aimp.ru/index.php?newlang=english

For me it Works fine. It has nice design and looks. Simple but has high performance and many features.
What do you guys say ???

:wink:

I wish to add that he still has a media library and supports plugins from BASS library and winamp still have skin editor for create nice skins and supports many languages, have tabs in playlist like foobar2000 and many more
Incidentally, I had long been one of the active participants in the aimp team.

Why AIMP? - Artem Izmailov media player

Recently, I made a portable version with Thinstall I wrote about it in my blog

I tried to do a JaunyePE but I did not get on, who could still try

sorry for my english :)

[edit]
AIMP writes a lot of entries into the registry...

alxgudo could you create a new thinstall build of the latest AIMP beta?

the newest version of this seems to be portable but i need help checking it further. installing it adds context menus, but you can unpack it with uniextract and it works fine. i ran it through regfromapp and didn't come up with anything. it seems all settings are written to a series of INI files.

only thing to do is when running for the first time, choose Single User mode. that way settings are not saved to a folder bearing the current user name. either way, though, the INI's are written to the program folder.

it's an awesome audio player, very slim, definitely rivals winamp. includes audio converter, tag editor, and cd ripper. full unicode support, gloabl hotkeys, skins, 32bit sound, etc.

anyway if someone else can do their magic and test this one i'd be grateful. thanks!

VERY impressive. I would say it beats Winamp in many ways. It implements some of my favorite things about foobar2000 (my favorite), though it's not quite as flexible and powerful.

When adding internet radio URLs (m3u/pls) to an AIMP playlist, it doesn't split them into separate tracks for each stream, like so many all-in-one audio players do (including foobar2000).

It's easy to use and very easy on the eyes. 8)

It didn't create anything outside its own directory under Sandboxie. Most people will probably want to uncheck "save absolute file paths" in the playlist section of the options. However, if you move back and forth between the same computers that have media files on their hard drives, you could create machine-specific playlists.

EDIT: Forget what I said above about playlist URLs. It only saves the URL of the stream it connects to. Looks like I'm sticking with Screamer for internet streams.

thanks for checking. i just thought it was too good to be true for such a full-featured and well-presented player to be portable. but it seems like it is.

i have been using Billy, but this one will probably take over. the library manager is great, and the mini player fits nicely on my custom desktop menu.

it even supports sending winamp-style messages to other apps, so i can use it with my favorite non-portable app: CD Art Display :)

cool! if someone can verify that it's stealth that would be awesome!

i loved this player when i first tested it, but the portability factor killed it for me.

Besides some HKCU MRUs that are added when browsing for files, the following key is written upon starting AIMP:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections]


So I guess it qualifies as "stealth".

just a warning - AIMP2 seems to remember the screen position of the main player and mini player in absolute rather than relative terms. i was running this at home on my high res wide screen, and when i brought it to work to use on a low res old crt, the mini player opened off-screen and i couldn't bring it back.

i still have not found where this setting is kept...

hey garbanzo,

same thing happened to me... the one thing that changed this was resetting the settings to default.

a pain, but the mini player did come back.

also one thing that i've noticed is if you turn off the crossfade option, the audio playback doesn't appear to be gapless... at least this was the case when i had an album ripped to MPC.

Great Winamp alternative, but can anyone shed any light on how/if AIMP can play .ra/.rm streams?
It's the only thing stopping me from switching from my trusty portable Winamp
