Easy Music Player
In the following you can see a screenshot of the Easy MP3 Player. In the middle of the window there is a list of the songs loaded currently. To add songs to this list, you can open a playlist (*.emp), you can search folders for songs with "Playlist" > "Add Folders" or you can simply drag and drop files to the list.
By double-clicking a list item, you play the corresponding song. Other functions are located in the menu bar and if you use the right mouse button on a list item. These posibilities are explained in the sections help and functions. If you would like to switch between the display of the playing time and the loaded files (in the screenshot "24 Files Found (2h 8min 53sec)") to the display of the current song, click with your mouse on the text of this display. Further functions you can find in the menu bar and if you click with the right mouse button on a song. All of these functions are explained in the sections help and functions.
Press "STRG-F" or "Search" > "Search" to show the search function on the top of the window. Here you can search for terms in your music collection, the fitting songs will be displayed in the list below after clicking on "Search" or pressing the Enter key. Behind the search box, you can select the option "RegEx". With this option, it is possible to carry out music searches with regular expressions.
In addition, there are some search options. Click on "Options" on the search panel to show the options' panel on the left of the window. On this panel it is possible to adjust, which columns are searched, if upper and lower words are differed or if the search is concentrated on the whole term or single words. With the "inverse search" it is possible to reverse your query, so that only hits are displayed which do not agree with the word you have searched for.
The distinction between "whole term", "AND-Relation" and "OR-Relation" makes it possible to search for "Word1 Word2" as a whole word, to display all hits that includes both "Word1" and "Word2" at a arbitrary position or to display all hits that includes either "Word1" or "Word2". If, for example, four different artists seperated with spaces are written in the search filed and you choose the "OR-Relation", all songs from all four artists are displayed.
An easy way to use the search function is to right click on a song in the list. With this you are able to show for example more songs from this artist, this genre or this folder. You can also call this function from the statusbar.
Text or HTML Lists
Sometimes it is necessary to write a list of all of your music files. You can find the corresponding function on "File" > "Export as Text/HTML-Table". The window is devided into three areas. The format of your strings you can define in the first input box, above you can see registers with the functions and the list.
In this example, the format "%123% %artist% - %title%" was chosen. By this, a numbered list of artist and title is written. The single format elements like %album% or %filepath% can be inserted by the "Input Assistance" automatically, in addition it is possible to use every other character between the formats. For instance, with the other functions you can write a HTML tabel instead of a text list, replace some characters (Find and Replace) or allow only certain parts of your collection (Use Filter), for example the songs by a certain artist or found in a certain folder. The list is updated automatically, however, these and other attitudes can be adapted also under "Show Settings".
You can enlarge the screenshots by clicking on the pictures. Then a pop up window opens with a high resolution image.
The screenshots have been created with the Clipboard Saver. With this tool you can automatically save screenshots in an arbitrary format and you can concurrently scale the images to your desired size.
