Skype Audio Player
Skype Audio Player, as its name suggests, is an application that you can use to play the same audio files to both people who are engaged in a Skype conversation. With it you are able to load and play files in MP3, WAV and WMA formats.
A basic interface which denotes ease of use
Installing Skype Audio Player should pose no problems to you or anyone else for that matter since all you have to do is run the installer, follow the simple wizard and once that’s done, login to your Skype account and grant the player permission to access the host.
With all that accomplished, all that’s left is to run the app, load the audio files and play them. From a drop-down menu you can choose the person with whom you want to share the audio track and once you double-click a loaded song, it immediately starts to play.
Share songs, podcasts or recorded lectures in a giffy
Skype Audio Player might not seem like a practical solution at first since you can share a YouTube link for a song and both listen to it at the same time but it does offer a simple and efficient solution for when you want to discuss a recording.
For example, let’s say that you posses a recording of a university lecture and you have to go over it with an abroad colleague in order to analyze it. Being able to control playback for both parties is very convenient since you will always be ‘on the same page’.
Moreover, Skype Audio Player offers you a seek bar that you can use to make your way to a specific section of the audio file, or go back and repeat something that was unclear.
Not necessarily a looker but it is a doer
Skype Audio Player will not strike you as an appealing application but if you’re looking to share an audio file via Skype with decent quality, then you can certainly try this option.
