Easy MP3 Player
Easy MP3 Player is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you play your audio files with the following file formats: MP3, WAV, OGG, and WMA.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to play audio files on the fly, without having to go through installation steps.
The user interface looks quite plain and reveals information about each audio track, such as number, artist, title, length, album, track, year, genre, and file location. You may drag and drop the audio files directly into the primary panel.
There’s support for some master controls designed to help you play or stop the current audio selection, go to the previous or next song, and seek for a position in the audio streams. The built-in buttons for mastering the audio playback are not very attractive.
Easy MP3 Player gives you the possibility to perform search operations for quickly identifying a song in the list, as well as look for MP3, OGG, WAV, and/or WMA files into a user-defined location, include subdirectories, and add files only if they are not in the playlist.
What’s more, you may repeat the current audio selection, play songs in a random order, create and save playlists, and delete the selected song. During our testing we have noticed that Easy MP3 Player carries out a task quickly and provides very good audio quality. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.
The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal tool for rookies who don’t want to spend a lot of time tweaking the playing parameters. On the downside, it would have been useful to see support for volume adjustment options, equalizer, and plugins, just to name a few suggestions.
To sum it up, Easy MP3 Player proves to be a basic audio player that comes bundled with limited features. It needs several improvements in the GUI area to make the process more pleasant and intuitive.
