) - Old School media formats player (MOD, XM, etc), and all current media formats.
I was thinking to myself:
"I like mediamonkey, but it takes ~10sec to start, uses up ~60mb, and ~20% of the CPU while playing. It'd be niice to have that functionality on a tiny, non-resource-hogging application. Portable if possible".
My idea of a tiny player was evilplayer: reduced in size, but feature poor.
Enter XMPlay. it plays everything with a memory footprint of < 1mb. It has skins, and a library, for the same size of evilplayer. It supports all winamp plugins (for me the Ozone plugin is essential!). It can connect to last.fm. and all that using a few files in a folder, no registry at all, portable and super-compact.
It uses 15 mb when playing stuff through the Ozone plugin (CPU intensive) and about 17% CPU. It pops up immediately, vs 10 sec for MM. All my config comes with me in case I put in in a thumbdrive.
This, gentleman, is beautiful
And the sound quality is, to my ears, better than MM (BASS engine).
Oh, and global shortcuts to boot, minizes to tray etc.
You don't see apps this complete and tiny often.
