foobar2000 1.6.3 Beta 1 / 1.6.2 Final

Foobar2000 is a great media player, created by Peter Pavlovski, who worked on Winamp 2. Foobar uses a very clear and simple interface – no skins and no unnecessary things on it.

foobar2000 is a lightweight and easy to use player that supports almost all music formats (MP1, MP2, MP3, MP4, MPC, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC / Ogg FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, AU, SND, CDDA) along with unicode-texts. It is also distinguished by the fact that it does not load your system at all, but has the main options of Winamp.
