Review last updated: 02/07/12

Quintessential Player (a.k.a. QCD) is a feature rich media player for Microsoft Windows. It supports all popular audio formats including MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, and CDs. QCD is highly skinnable and has a robust plug-in architecture.

QCD performs CD Ripping and Encoding, streams Internet Radio, and can Clean and Tag all your audio files. QCD uses Gracenote for the best music recognition. QCD even plays videos.

"QMP has features that others do not have"

QMP is one of the best mp3 players I've ever used. With its Auto Prune, Randomize, Reverse tracks and auto numbering, you are assured that you get to play all of your mp3s in the list without the risk of repeating it

Pros
  • Auto prune that automatically removes the played track after it has played.
  • reverse play, makes it feel like a countdown playing
  • can randomize the playlist
  • can auto number the each randomized items in the playlist
Cons
  • In win 8, it always crash.
  • doesn't have an auto randomize feature that automatically randomize the playlist after each song played.
  • doesn't have a 200%-400% volume capacity like VLC.
  • still couldn't play some of the formats especially mkvs
  • add subtitle with currently playing video
  • the search feature in the library doesn't work right
