The formats supported by the Quintessential Media Player are extremely diverse: MP1, MP2, MP3, WAV, audio CD, M1V, M2V, AVI, ASF, WMV, WMA, PLS and M3U (playlist files) and OGG.
By using plugins, the Quintessential Media Player can also support AAC, MIDI, APE, MAC, Speex, MPEG, FLAC and many others.
The strengths of this application are the very good sound quality, the guaranteed stability and robustness, the small size, the low amount of system resources it needs, the easiness of use and offering advanced options to power users. If you are an experienced user, you will definitely enjoy the wide range of skins, language packs and plug-ins.
Some of the advanced features of this program are selecting file associations, ripping CDs, selecting the encoding format, assigning hotkeys, activating stream saving, the global support for multimedia keys and enabling ReplayGain.
One of the features that make the Quintessential Media Player different from other software, for instance from iTunes, is its play queue. Moreover, it is skinnable, but on the other hand, visualizations can be considered old-fashioned by some users. In fact, this media player has not been developed anymore since 2009.
As a bottom line, the Quintessential Media Player has a few interesting options to offer, but its functioning is not impeccable. It can still be helpful for some users even if its interface looks overwhelming at the first sight.
The Quintessential Media Player helps you personalize your audio contents and get the most out of your music.
