Player 1.4.0 review by Paul Rowlingson, vnunet.com 17 Jun 2003
Player is a tiny audio and video player that takes up little system resources, yet offers good functionality and a wide range of supported formats.
Among others it supports MP3, WAV, MIDI, CDA, AVI, MPG, WMV and AIFF.
Player has five different on-screen modes to suit all needs, from full-screen to micro mode.
In micro mode the player is small enough to float on top of a program title bar, but has no playlist functionality. Switching between modes is simple, letting you access other functions as needed.
It offers m3u playlist support, but only the basic controls: play, pause, stop, back and forwards. Remaining or elapsed track time can also be displayed.
Player can also edit MP3 tags individually or in batches, and it offers a good range of skins for those that want them.
Verdict: ***** (5 out of 5)
A refreshing change to all the bloated media players around. A firm favourite of ours.
