uPlayer is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping users listen to their favorite audio files in a clean and intuitive working environment.
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 breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
It sports a minimalistic layout that offers only a few configuration settings to tinker with.
The program gives you the possibility to upload the audio files into the working environment using the built-in browse function or “drag and drop” operations. Plus, the tool is able to stream songs by specifying a valid URL.
uPlayer works with the following file formats: WAV, AIF, MP3, or OGG file format, and lets you play or stop the current selection, adjust the volume, and seek for a position in the audio streams.
What’s more, you can go to the previous or next song, use hotkeys for a better control over the entire process, delete the selected song, shuffle or repeat the audio files, sort items by filename, as well as create playlists, which can be exported to M3U or PLS file format.
During our testing we have noticed that uPlayer carries out a task quickly, provides very good audio quality, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
All things considered, uPlayer seems to be the right-choice in case you are looking for a simple-to-use app that bundles only few configuration settings for helping you play audio files.
