yPlay music player

While the portable media players VLC & MPlayer are great, they're not so great for playing just music files, especially from playlists.

I tried both but their lack of playlist functionality is frustrating.
I also tried a portable app called soprano but it's lacking in playlist-usage as well.

I did find one great, lightweight candidate: yPlay - http://www.spacejock.com/yPlay.html

"yPlay is a freeware MP3, Ogg*, WMA, WAV, FLAC* and Midi player with multiple playlists and a light, clean interface."

I installed it directly to my USB drive, and it's working, but not fully-portably. (For instance, it plays music on my work pc, but was acting strange on my gf's laptop @ home.)

Please strongly consider this app for your list; I recommend it Wink
THANX!

oh man, i was using foobar

oh man, i was using foobar before and didn't know if you "uncheck "per user", and be warned about the media library" (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t48328.html) it would work portably.

I'll give it a try (if i don't like this Xion app)

thanx everyone

yPlay isn't GPL, then it can't be portabilized here...

I use xmplay for music and VLC/KM Players for video.

Visit this place, I'm sure you'll find a good option for you.

have you checked/searched? there is a post on this forum where JTH explain that mTorrent is the only exception and have a permission for that...

Have you read the forum guidelines? only GPL software can be portabiliced/posted/published here...

Clarification.

No, uTorrent is not open source. However, the uTorrent executable is not included, so the whole package is open source. When/If ( Blum ) John gets the freeware download server up, it will be included. The only thing this could conflict with is the installer, as the launcher is not counted as being dynamically linked or dependant on the uTorrent executable. However, it doesn't/won't conflict with the installer, as there is a provision at the top of the installer source (where the license is located) which allows closed source software to be included if it is developed by PortableApps.com.

Hope that clarifies. Smile

That is already well understood but the fact of the matter is that the application itself, not the launcher, is closed source. I always thought that portableapps were for Open Source Apps. As stated at https://portableapps.com/development Open Source licenses are the most flexible, although it doesn't say that close sournce licenses are out of the question so I may be wrong (since several other closed source apps have been ruled out such as ccleaner) My question is: whats next? Smile

well

It's hard to locate because it's bits of information that JTH release when posting something in one of those many threads that this forum have... but, AFAIK, next is another webpage to store closed source freeware, and another one for payware... I really don't understand why other pages are needed and those Apps can't be stored here but that's what JTH said somewhere in the recent past.

When? I think not even JTH knows... Blum

Personally, for me "next" means more security, more speed, more stability (my kompozer portable crashes almost once every half an hour), and more PApps, but those that we call "utilities" because I think PApps Suite is already very complete... well, maybe it needs more games... Smile

/me is still waiting for PortableAssaultCube, PortableAtomicTanks and PortableUFO: Alien Invasion... Sad

Hosting

Other pages are needed because all the Apps we have now are Open Source and therefore can be hosted on Sourceforge.net. So we dont have to pay servers and bandwidth for the downloads (lots of $$$).
So we need another server to host the closed source stuff. And to pay for that John need some money. So its not a new web page, just a download server Smile
