A free, light, fast audio player that focuses on functionality
It is a piece of freeware, which means you can install and use it on your computer, but you are not allowed to sell it or modify the core program in any way.
The company behind distributing it is based in the EU. They are Anamo.eu, and they sell to people in Eastern Europe and therefore use English very rarely. Even their website has limited English options.
You will have to use the compatibility tool on your computer. When using the tool, click to say that the program used to work on an older version of Windows, and then select Windows 7/Vista/2003/XP and run the program with those settings.
The tool drags the information from the Anamo website. That may be why your virus-checker flags warnings when you use this program. A placeholder is shown if the player cannot get background information about your song or album from the Internet.
There are different versions of Music Player floating around the Internet, and it is unlikely that you have the most recent version. If you do not, then the tool will claim there are updates read for downloading, but the server that holds the updates doesn't hold them anymore, which means you cannot update your Music Player program.
You can click the plus button at the bottom left of the screen, find your song on your computer, select it and play it. Or, you can right-click the file on your computer and use the “Open With” function on the right-click menu.
Click on “Settings” on the bottom right of your Music Player GUI, it is the small cog icon, and click on “Collection.” Use the tool to identify the folder on your computer that has all your music on it. Select the folder, and those songs will appear on your Music Player library.
You only received the free album when you downloaded the program from the Anamo website, but they do not offer the download anymore. You are not missing much, the album was just a mash-up of pop songs with a backing beat.
The volume slider is at the top left of the Music Player GUI. The VLC player is somehow able to make tracks between 125% and 200% louder than most others, but that is a trick that only the VLC team have figured out so far because you cannot do it with this piece of software.
The music player identifies certain “web-friendly” files as ones you have download from the Internet. You can move them over to your regular music library if you wish.?
