V Player 1.0.3
Vista gadget that plays any type of file supported by Windows Media Player, such as AVI, MPG, ASF, WMA and WMV, with limited options
Note that this app has not been updated for a long time, and it is not supported by newer operating systems, nor compatible with the latest Media Player standards.
The GUI is based on a small frame that can be moved anywhere on the screen with the help of the mouse cursor. Thanks to the built-in Windows options, you can make the frame stay on top of other windows, and modify its opacity.
This way, you can view movies or video clips while working in other applications, since V Player is not intrusive.
Unfortunately, the drag-and-drop feature is not supported for loading files into the media player; you have to access the Settings panel and browse for a video or audio format using the default file browser. It is not possible to create a playlist.
As far as media controls are concerned, you can pause the stream, adjust the volume level or mute it, manage plugins, and switch to full screen mode.
The gadget is low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it doesn't slow down overall performance or interrupt user activity. Unfortunately, most users have adopted later OS platforms, so they cannot work with V Player.
