YPlay – tiny but flexible freeware music player

YPlay is not grand and it’s not fancy, it’s just a freeware music player. Anyhoo, this one grabs my fancy because it plays Ogg, MIDI and FLAC as well as MP3. And most importantly, as the developer himself says – “I’m not pretending it has more features than the other programs (it doesn’t) or that it’s better in any way. It’s just smaller, simpler and lighter.”

 As of version 1.0.22, yPlay has an option to speak all controls (and file names) aloud as you move the mouse over them. (Thanks to Tom for the suggestion.) You need the MS Speech API installed for this – if you don’t have it, just download and install my ‘yRead’ software, which will set up the speech engines for you.
