Publisher's Description

Quintessential Media Player (formerly Quintessential Player) is all about you. With its freeform skinning and plentiful choices of plugins it can be as simple or feature rich as you like. It knows its place and won't try to take over your system. It is as user friendly as we can make it, but still hardcore enough for the pros.

Like many others, I used to enjoy it, but alas, moved on due to lack of activity on it's development. I tried several other MP3/Media players but settled in on Xion when I found it recently here. It is what QMP used to be, simple, clean, easy, and an excellent skin engine.

For nostalgic reasons I give QMP 3 stars.

The only problem with these folx, is that I hope you enjoy waiting for updates. I used it for about 3 years. Just fine, Waited for QMP's final release. Never happened, so I sent them a bunch of hate mail, and went with JetAudio, which updates frequently. Supports more Audio formats then this one. One problem with them caused me to move on.

They where sitting on their fannies, with thumbs stuck up their butts, and just chatting about releasing QMP non beta version.

Used to be my player of choice. Just loved it.

However, since development changed to making it a media player/media manager. It's not nearly as good. DEvelopment has slowed right down and it just doesn't *feel* as elegant and useful as it once was.
The last build I used was buggy, slow and a bit bloated.

On the up side, the developer (there is only one). has cut back the download side quite a bit.

Some of the skins are lovely, and the build in skin browser/downloader is superb.

QMP might be brilliant when it's finished, but it's been 5 months since the last update, so *finished* might be quite a while yet!

Good program, still buggy. Be nice when they get to the finish product.

Gives winamp a run for its money.

For all the 'normal' people around - i have a decent middle range PC and used to use Windows Media for it's functions but found that far too CPU intensive. Winamp always bummed out my system for some reason (on a mates crappier box it worked fine - i don't know why). I changed to Quintessential (full release) and never looked back.. until now. The newest beta version is far better; The new version takes far less time time to add BIG folders (70Gb in my case) and also the search function takes no time at all (opposed to up to 10secs in the full release). I love this app; The 'play song next' is the killer function.

Only thing to complain about is the lack of the streaming thing that the new WinAmp now has. I don't really care that much cos i RDP on to my box when i am away from it anyway, but would like to see this in future releases.

Go Quinn go, is what i say.

Good, but actually quite bloated.

May I suggest a better player? I'll do it anyway; Musikcube.

This is my best Player after trying most of the players,, The only thing it could make it the ultimate is the tab playlist like foo2000 other than that is still my best,, I like it,, it has everything I need and in top of this I can play my fav. DSP winamp Plugins,, specaily the enhanced .17 ,,(if you have not try it then you should it makes my reqular speaker at work like 5.1 suround),,

You can do so much with just the Icon tray and the mouse,, this is the only player that has this power feature ,,

I like the new structure of menus ,, well done,,

Best luck to the author and many thanks,,
