The official 1by1 (1.84) download link appears to be down currently...:-(

Try this one instead:

The last version - 1.84 - does not allow to change font in Settings... \ List style.

My favourite player. Not over loaded with pointless skins and visuals. Just a nice easy to use player.

For a couple more *diminutive* audio players (one of which is just 4.6k !), check the forums here:

More information: If you want 1by1 100% portable without registry touch, please download mpglib.dll in official website and bass.dll (optional, improve audio experience only), and go to Options -> Decoder -> change decoder to mpglib.dll, go to System and tick Force portable....
And now we have a music play fully portable :)

Normally if we use ACM Decoder, Windows will touch and change this registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I'm using ver 1.76 in XP and I can delete files to the recycle bin with the 1by1 context menu. To delete a file from the playlist only, use the keyboard "DEL" key.

The m4a plugin available at http://www.free-codecs.com/mp4_input_plugin_for_winamp_download.htm works great in ver 1.76.
