Metal Player is a flexible and mutiformat media file player that supports most audio and video files (mp3, mp4, mpeg, wav, wma, fla, divx, xvid, etc). The program has a simple built-in graphic equalizer, allowing you to set a good deal of effects through it, especially when playing Metal songs. Metal music natural acoustics (guitars, bass, drums) will give the user a surround effect. Video playback is available for most formats, you can watch different video file types in this program without the need to download additional codecs/plugins. Among the application's features you can have a Top 20 list, which will display the last 20 played files. This is useful since you can create a favorite playlist with it, not to mention that you can create customized playlists from the track list. The player itself performs well without using excessive resources/memory unlike other heavyweight applications in its category. This is especially useful when using a netbook which is limited in disk space and memory. The program was tested on a Windows 7 32bit system.
- Uses very little resources and the equalizer gives Metal music files an even heavier sound
- You can't forward video files (it crashes) and the audio files will glitch when forwarding using the mouse
