"Version 2.19 is an excellent lightweight audio player"
Simple, lightweight audio player... very excellent if you just want to play MP3 (mp2, mp1), WAV, OGG files, (and many other formats, including CD's, via plugins), or... stream from URL.
Includes equalizer and ID3 tag editing from the playlist editor.
Option to close after playing... so you could set it as default player... to double-click an audio file, playing it, and exiting.
Few recent updates (but... it's meant to be a simple player).
Forums are out of date/spammed.
CNET's dnld mgr version of Cool Player (2.15?) causes a virus alert, and the direct download link doesn't seem to work (old?).
Version 2.19 (from coolplayer.sourceforge.net, 2.20 from softpedia) is an excellent simple audio player for when you just want to play audio/music without a lot of extra needless 'features'.
Includes an equalizer, playlist/tag editor, save/load playlists, shuffle, repeat, track time elapsed or time remaining (click display), and you can add by file or directory. Some skins.
