Meson Player is a very convenient music player if you don't need any flashy GUI to control playback or manage playlists. 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.

Meson Player supports a lot of music file formats (stream and tracker), Internet radio and playlists management.

Windows, OSX and Linux are supported.

1) The default setup file for Windows is i686 version. It can be installed on x86_64 systems without a problem. You may download x86_64 version of Meson Player from "Files" section, but it has less plugins and no system proxy support.
2) Windows XP, Windows Vista and OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) are NOT supported.
