Winyl is an easy-to-use audio player with a minimalist design and support for the most popular formats.

Most PC users are accustomed to massive media players that hog resources and take up large portions of your PC's hard drive. This is why finding a small, simple, and lightweight player such as Winyl is so great when it actually happens.

The program's interface is divided into two panels: a primary one with your current playlist and a smaller one that has a tree-like structure. The latter enables you to filter music according to different criteria. To add music in Winyl, simply right-click on the top toolbar and select the Library option. You can also add complete folders or individual files via a personalized Add menu. Winyl includes support for star rankings, much like iTunes, and can also display ID tags. Unfortunately, you can't edit ID tags, making its functionality a little limited.

There are also a few different skin options you can use for Winyl, including one that makes it actually look like iTunes. This is a definite plus for someone who prefers to personalize their audio player a little and make it more their own. Winyl is also fast and stable, so it doesn't overwhelm system resources. For someone who doesn't need a complete multimedia station on their PC, this is a fantastic option.

Winyl is a lightweight player that allows you to enjoy your favorite music in a simple, minimalist environment.
