From Jaron ICT-Services:
SimplePlayer is a free audio player that can play any audio file that is supported by Microsoft DirectX. The player is DirectShow based.
An option to load Windows Media Playlists is there.
The program is still in its infancy and so I would appreciate any feedback / suggestions from you!
You will need the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable which can easily be obtained from Microsoft's website.
I hope you will enjoy this program!
