Qmmp Player

Posted : admin On 1/3/2022

Qmmp looks like the good old Winamp, or Xmms if you prefer, so there's nothing to explain about its design really. The player, equalizer and playlist are three individual and separate windows that can move independently on your desktop, get resized, or even get closed (except for the player window). Qmmp is a Free, open-source, cross-platform multimedia audio player which was written in C with the help of the Qt library. The user interface is similar to winamp. It is the only audio player not using any database that uses the Qt library. Qmmp is support wide range of audio format such MPEG1 layer 2/3, Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Opus, Native FLAC/Ogg FLAC, Musepack & WavePack. QMMP 1.4.4 QMMP is an Qt-based audio-player. The user interface is similar to Winamp or XMMS, which compatible skins can be used of. It supports a plethora of audio formats, like MP3, Ogg Vorbis/Opus, FLAC, Musepack, WavePack, MOD files, AAC, Audio CDs, WMA and other ffmpeg-supported encodings, PCM, MIDI, SID, and Chiptune files.

Qmmp (skinned)

qmmp is known for its small, themeable user interface and low use of system resources.[6] The user interface and behaviour is very similar to the at its time very popular Winamp.[7] By supporting Winamp (Classic) skin files it can easily be configured to look exactly the same as Winamp 2.x.It is also catering for more discerning or audiophile listeners with support for cue sheets and volume normalization according to the ReplayGain standard. Album cover art is supported using separate sidecar files or embedded in ID3v2 tags and can be automatically fetched if missing.
