After a bit of studying some other media players that have shown up on the forum and other places, I have come up with this simple player.

New Update!


Tray menu operation

Folder navigation

Song database

Audio, video, and photo playback


Repeat One


Show/Hide GUI


Search Library

Media Keyboard buttons now supported

Key shortcuts:

Seek - Alt+s

Media Keyboard Next, Previous, Play buttons

You can now also seek with the seek bar!

I hope you like it!

Now version 2.1: WMA support added. Indexing now uses FileGetExt property. Also works better with files with square brackets in the path, but not well.

Now 2.1.5: Should be faster. Tell me how much faster it is.

Full Installer and Updater available at www.bananafredsoft.com (Installer isn't working right now, I think I'll fix it tonight... use the source)

Edit: The code is free for anyone to use as they wish, as long as they give due credit :)

_FileGetExtProp function by Simucal.

Updated 12-4-07

Info for update: Help file thing won't work unless you have it. ID3.au3 no longer needed!

If you download the script and run it, it won't work right, so you should download the installer from here:


or the file (might work) from here:


If you want to update your current fully installed version, use this:


(Or you can just run MediaPlayer, because it has an autoupdater and will ask you if you want to update. If it doesn't, use the above file)

Give it time. The whole world isn't awake at the same times you are.

I don't need a media player right now. If I do I'll take a look at it.


Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Suggestions, comments, and criticism are welcome.

A few basic suggestions for appearence:
  • This GUI is huge!!!!!!! From what I've seen it only uses about 10% of the GUI size, try sizing it down a bit (unless you follow some of my following suggestions)
  • If your menu is only going to contain two buttons (the third one, "Directory") is more of a label, I would suggest just using buttons and labels.
  • Back doesn't go back, just to the beginning of the song (which is good), but in my opinion it should actually go back a song if the current song time is 0 (like an iPod)...
A bunch of suggestions for improvement if you have time:
  • A list of all songs (and the user can doubleclick one to play it)
  • Automatically save the list, and open it upon startup of program
  • Have a seek bar
Questions (please note that I used this program very briefly):
  • What does the play menu do?
  • What does the save option do? - I got an error when I tried to save, it might be because I put no file type but I didn't know what file type to use :)

As always, all the above are my opinions!

Thanks for all the suggestions, Piano_Man. I will start working on those.

The save option just saves the file you're listening to or viewing to another place.

The play menu is supposed to make it so you can loop tracks, but it doesn't work :)

Soo gut.



Edit: Does anyone know how to read the ID3 (or whatever it's called :P ) tags of a song?

Nice job, works fine just had one small bug.

I was listening to a mp3 while loading a dir into the playlist, then when i pressed next, the second mp3 started playing but the one

that was already playing didnt stop so i had 2 songs playing at once.

Edit: Also when you close the Play Type window the whole MediaPlayer closes.

btw, place a link to ID3.au3 in your first post :)

I want to make a cool skin for MediaPlayer. The problem is, I don't know how. Can someone help me out with this? Thanks in advance!

My ID3.au3 currently does not work with Autoit I am trying to update it so it will. In the mean time there are other ways to get the tag info, but no album art. Try CFire's WMMedia.au3, http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...&hl=WMMedia

There should be some tag reading functions that will work with .mp3 and .wma
