Some of the basic features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats.

Features:

  • Audio formats supported: MP1, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC / Ogg FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, AU, SND, CDDA.
  • Full unicode support.
  • Advanced tagging capabilities.
  • Support for transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component (requires external commandline encoder executables for different output formats).
  • ReplayGain support - both playback and calculation.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
  • Open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player.

What's New:

  • Added new iTunes ID3 classical fields.
  • Improved playlist behaviors when deleting the now playing file.
  • ReplayGain apply-gain-and-prevent-clipping no longer presumes 1.0 peak when peak is unknown.
  • Fixed occasional errors when saving configuration.
  • Converter: Improved behavior when output file names repeat.
  • Fixed HTTP client bugs (internet radio, network shares).
  • Made MP4 files with missing duration info playable.
  • Windows 10 Universal Volume Control integration disabled by default due to bugs. This should address “multimedia keys don't work” issues.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause spurious rewrites of certain configuration files [beta 2].
  • Made default MP4 handler gracefully fail to decode files with no supported audio tracks - so another decoder lower on the list can handle them [beta 2].
  • Worked around an “Open…” dialog lockup with lots and lots of supported file formats provided by third party components [final].
