Desktop Media Player 1.9.4.0

Play your favorite songs from this compact audio player that supports lyrics and CD-art
Desktop Media Player is an application that lets you easily play songs in an audio player. It supports MP3s and WMAs.

This is a portable product, so installation is not necessary. You can simply place Desktop Media Player on a USB flash drive and run it on any computer. Also, your Windows registry keys will remain intact.

The interface of the program consists of a very small window which is shaped as a CD case (that's because you can also view cover art).

You can import files and folders by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method.

But you can also open a song from a URL, as well as create and manage a playlist (shuffle, repeat, search, show playlist).

Furthermore, you can use basic media player controls, such as pause, go to the next or previous track, navigate back and forth within the song, and adjust the volume.

In addition, you can view file information (e.g. edit ID tags), open the file directory, view lyrics, get covers and burn audio to disc, as well as configure settings (e.g. enable a position indicator on mouse-over, show icon in the notification area of system tray).

For such a small application, Desktop Media Player takes up a high amount of system resources. There is no help file available but that's because the functions are pretty easy to understand.

However, an error popped up during our tests, every time we initialized the application, or attempted to view lyrics and get cover art. Also, we would have liked to see support for additional audio formats (e.g. WAV, OGG, FLAC). Other than that, Desktop Media Player is a simple and straightforward tool for playing music and you can use it with confidence.
