Here are the highlights:
Quintessential supports a massive variety of popular
audio and video file types, including mp3, mp3 PRO,
Ogg Vorbis, WMA , CD, ASX, AU, and much more
Ripping and Encoding
You can convert your CD audio or existing media
files into any digital audio format, including Ogg
Vorbis, LAME, WMA, etc...
Gracenote CDDB Support
The Quintessential Player uses the Gracenote CDDB
Music Recognition Service to fill in artist, album
and song info. But if you really want to get
detailed, you can expand the incoming data to
include up to 30 fields, such as track-level
songwriting, production, playing credits, release
date, label, genre, and more.
Extensible, open architecture
Quintessential is a small package; the developers
wanted it that way. Once Quintessential is
installed, however, you can customize and add on to
the player to your heart's content. Add visualizers,
custom skins, language packs, specific audio
encoders (such as LAME), library/playlist functions,
all available as free plug-ins
from the Quintessential website.
Quintessential Player is a
for Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, and Vista.
