MESON PLAYER - The music player with no GUI. Version: 0.5 (alpha) http://mesonplayer.sf.net (c) Alkatraz Studio, 2012 ***DESCRIPTION*** Meson Player is very convenient if you don't need any flashy GUI to control playback or manage playlists. Here you just run it and then forget about it. The player is running in background. Switching tracks, volume control, loading and saving playlists, all of this performed by using hotkeys. Therefore, you can control the player while working in any application. ***FEATURES*** - no GUI (except a tray popup menu, but you can hide the tray icon as well) - controlled only by global hotkeys - supports a lot of stream/tracker formats - additional formats support can be added by plugins - supports Internet radio stations - supports CUE sheets - can control system audio volume - a big variety of options allows to change the app's behavior and appearance - Last.FM scrobbling ***QUICK START*** 1. Install Meson Player; 2. Right-click on any folder or playlist with music; 3. Choose "Open in Meson Player" from a context menu; 4.
