Featuresfmedia is a fast asynchronous media player/recorder/converter for Windows and Linux. Its goal is to provide smooth playback even if input device is very slow and unresponsive. The architecture allows to extend the functionality of the application in any way: adding a new audio input/output format, a new DSP filter or even a new GUI. fmedia is very small and fast: it has low CPU & memory consumption making it ideal to listen to music or process audio files while running on a notebook's battery.
- fmedia can decode: .mp3, .ogg (Vorbis), .opus, .m4a/.mp4 (AAC, ALAC, MPEG), .mka/.mkv (AAC, ALAC, MPEG, Vorbis), .avi (AAC, MPEG), .flac, .ape, .wv, .wav.
- fmedia can encode into: .mp3, .ogg, .opus, .m4a (AAC), .flac, .wav.
- Self-contained. fmedia uses modified versions of 3rd party libraries: libALAC, libfdk-aac, libFLAC, libMAC, libmp3lame, libmpg123, libogg, libopus, libsoxr, libvorbisenc, libvorbis, libwavpack. Everything is inside the package, so no additional dependencies are required to be installed on your system.
- Portable. No installation, just uncompress the package anywhere you want!
- Open-source. You can download the sourcecode from here: https://github.com/stsaz/fmedia
- Other features include: tabbed interface, hot keys, minimize to tray, tray control, recording, media information, Cue sheets support and more.

fmedia can be easily made portable and stealth:
By default fmedia GUI saves its state in file "%APPDATA%\fmedia\fmedia.gui.conf". You can change this by setting "portable_conf" to "true" in fmedia.conf. After that, "fmedia.gui.conf" will be stored in program directory (e.g. "C:\Program Files\fmedia\fmedia.gui.conf"), thus making fmedia completely portable.
- Download the archive.
- Extract the archive to a folder of your choice.
- Open fmedia.conf file with a text editor.
- Navigate to line portable_conf false.
- Edit it changing false to true:
Code: Select all
portable_conf false portable_conf true
- Save changes.
- Run fmedia-gui.exe.
- The configuration file (fmedia.gui.conf) will be saved to program folder.
Currently fmedia is available for x64-bit systems only.
fmedia is open source (the code is available at GitHub). I couldn't find the license type.
fmedia is equipped with detailed help files (help.txt, help-tui.txt, README.txt).
The developer, Simon Zolin is very helpful and open to suggestions.
