The forked version of this project you're now linking to SUCKS!
I also find it odd/concerning that the links to the 'Original version' (Executable|Source code) on the downloads page are empty zips.

The 'Original' SysTrayPlay (Final 10603 - circa 2001) has worked flawlessly across various versions of Windows up to and including Vista.

I think it deserves a local download link, to be hosted by TPFC.

What drives me mad is that ****ing tooltip that keeps popping up. When I'm working at the PC I use several prg's that I need now and then. When not, I minimize them to the systray. Every time I want to activate one of those prg's I get that tooltip again. I've checked the settings but there doesn't seem to be a way to disable it. Too bad, coz the prg ain't bad overall. Could have been even more simple, to my taste. I just want some music while I'm working on my sites, anything else is redundant to me.

hmm - just downloaded the latest version and I have the problem again where as it changes tracks it resets the volume level 10 100%

This app shows promise (ver. 1.2), derived from the fact that it has been around like forever, it has been integrated with my favorite browser K-Meleon ( under the K-Ninja variant, it is skinable, and there seems to be active development.

But, after testing it, I really agree with Victor -- the current developers should join efforts and merge the various forks into a stable branch, spining off the variations to external extensions or plugins. The UI needs some revamping and Vista compatibility should be worked on...

Until then there are plenty of other free options that do a much better job, expending less resources: 1by1, Evil Player, Billy, Soprano, VU Player (search & google for these) and even Screamer Radio, just to name a few.

Solved, the link from Grannygeek is working again now, and that version works beautifully!!

I've also found the version I have will not fast forward or rewind within a track, it just stutters.
