CherryPlayer

CNET Editors' review

We're always a little skeptical of media players that promise to deliver free, high-quality content. They often end up being too good to be true, annoying us with poor performance, obscure content, or restrictions on the good stuff. We were pleasantly surprised by CherryPlayer. This easy-to-use program gives users access to a huge selection of streaming music, and it has a built-in YouTube downloader as well. CherryPlayer is a great choice for listening to today's popular songs, exploring new music, and revisiting old favorites.

CherryPlayer's interface is straightforward and doesn't require much in the way of explanation. The navigation pane on the left allows users to browse songs from Last.fm's lists of loved tracks, hyped tracks, and top tracks, which is a nice way to check out what's currently popular. If you're after a specific song, CherryPlayer also lets you search for tracks from VK Music; you'll be prompted to create a VK.com account, but you can skip this without causing any problems. We had no trouble finding what we were looking for there, even some fairly obscure acts that we weren't really expecting to see. CherryPlayer makes it easy to create playlists, too. The YouTube downloader worked without issues, downloading videos as FLV files and then playing them back flawlessly. The program's online Help file is brief, but CherryPlayer doesn't require a whole lot in the way of documentation. Overall, we were impressed with CherryPlayer, and we think it's a great way to get free access to a surprisingly broad variety of music.

CherryPlayer installs and uninstalls without issues.

    Version: CherryPlayer 1.2.4

    Pros

    It's Fuschia my daughters are all gone but other than the color I found quite a few old songs and Pieces ,I listen through my computer and it is all free and hopefully on the up and up I must say it is very good the sound is MP3 320 I'm guessing and it has You Tube and lots of videos with playlists.
    Remember this is free and provides the music so it is kept simple I no nothing past Google on its history

    Cons

    Yes it is a simple player and music/video Player
    It's Fluorescent Pink
    I think you need to get the songs on it's VK I'm not sure what it is not necessarily a con though

    Summary

    This is done really well ,I like simple and I can listen to the songs before I purchase the CD
