bare bones media player foobar 2000 is a bare bones media player for MP3, WAV, OGG and other media formats. It comes without any bells and whistles, however, under the hood, the program offers quite a few features, including customizable title formatting and interface layouts, WAV conversion, Equalizer, Resampler, MP3 tag writing, playlists, music album, CD player, drag/drop and more. It also includes all of the standard features like shuffle, random play etc. foobar 2000 runs in the system tray and uses very few system resources. Additional components (including a Monkey`s Audio decoder) are available to extend the functionality. Copyright

Bam right out of box 5 stars by JURYCOM Aug 31, 2020 (Read all my 43 reviews)
I ditched VLC player monstrosity - too complex, never worked right, and looked for a simple music player. I saw foobar 2000 many years ago and dismissed it 'til I realized all the time and wasted effort trying to get VLC to work simply is not worth it. So, I am very happy that I had 8 cool jazz titles in queue and one playing in about 14 seconds with foobar. If you want artsy fartsy get something else. If you want music get foobar 2000. show Review details
Very basic player 2 stars by kycochise Jun 17, 2013 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Does the job, but awkward getting around in, and you need plugins to do most advanced things. show Review details
Plays subfolders if wanted. Small footprint. 5 stars by tolworthy Aug 21, 2012 (Read all my 3 reviews)
This did exactly what I wanted within 10 seconds of installing. No complaints! But one suggestion. Foobar starts with an empty list: Developers! Please fill the list with instructions for very first time users! It took me ten seconds to try "file -> add location" but then it was perfect: it immediately had all my music, including subfolders. So I clicked "shuffle" and it just worked. Goodbye Windows Media Player (with your slow load, bloated footprint, awkward interface and work-stopping updates). Hello Foobar, with just music! show Review details
