Qmmp Review

Tina de Pierre
A fast and lightweight media player with support for visualizations, Winamp plugins and several advanced options for full customization
A review of Qmmp by Tina de Pierre

Qmmp is a small and flexible audio player which also supports a wide variety of video formats thanks to its integration of MPlayer.

The program has a very familiar look and feel. That's probably because its layout derives a lot from Winamp which was the number one MP3 player among Windows users for eons.

The similarity to Winamp don't just stop at its look: Qmmp is fully capable of using Winamp DSP plugins which add endless possibilities for customizing the sound and playback of music.

Qmmp supports most video and audio formats and can apply effects to most of them without any hiccups. In terms of playback, the controls are very simple for anybody who has used a media player before. Next, Previous, Play, Pause, Stop are all standard controls.

In terms of user preferences, the layout of the settings menu is organized in to vertical tabs with sections including appearance, shortcuts, playlist, plugins, connectivity and audio. There is also an "Advanced" section which provides access to language settings as well as some other options. The "Appearance" section provides access to visual customizations including skins.

Overall, Qmmp is an excellent audio player which is similar to Winamp, though without the extra rubbish it accumulated after its acquisition and subsequent termination by AOL.
