Fennec player is an open source universal media player for Windows.

Introduction to Fennec Media Project

Welcome to Fennec player! Fennec player is a universal media player which mainly focuses on high definition audio/video playback and transcoding, it can play and convert into almost every audio/video file format available (see the list below). It supports converting/ripping/joining and playback, including features like headphone preview, easy tag editing, file name formatting, channel separated equalizations, DSP effects, volume/gain control and equalization for conversion and so. It's designed to be fast, compatible and easy to use - with 64bit floating point internal precision for audio. Fennec player is released under GNU General Public License, so you can read/modify source codes and contribute your support to the project freely (for more information, see help documentation).

Main Features Available

    * Can convert any file from the 'Decoding' list to 'Encoding'.
    * Audio CD ripping (to any format in the 'Encoding' list, with easy tagging).
    * Joining multiple media into a single (to any format in the 'Encoding' list).
    * Highly dynamic plug-ins interface, so you can add/remove plug-ins and edit their settings manually.
    * Visualizations, add/remove or make your plug-in.
    * Multichannel support (up to 16 channels) for both playback and transcoding.
    * A customizable 10 band equalizer for each channel.
    * High definition audio processing and output (64bit floating point audio processing, 8bit fixed point-32bit floating/fixed point to 64bit floating/fixed output).
    * Tag viewing and editing.
    * Formatting file name according to tags.
    * Group tag editing (copying and pasting selected tags into many files).
    * Equalizers on conversion/ripping and joining.
    * Volume and gain adjustments on conversion/ripping and joining.
    * Group tagging on conversion (could apply some constant tags into every file converted, artist name etc.).
    * Date and time editing on conversion/ripping and joining.
    * Editable DSP effects: you can add many effects simultaneously into the playing media and change the order of effects (you can add a bass boost and a reverb at the same time, boost bass before/after reverb etc.).
    * Skins (Fennec player doesn't have a user interface itself, it depends on plug-ins you can select to display the user interface).
    * Color schemes and manual tints for skins.
    * Automatic volume fade up/down.
    * Can decode multiple files at the same time (you can keep something playing while doing conversion, a new example for this is 'preview' system).

    * High quality icons for file association settings (256x256 pixel 32bit).
    * Multilingual user interface (completely UNICODE user interface so everyone can create a simple text file called a language pack to modify user interface language).
    * Highly editable global and local shortcut keys interface.
    * Fast and customizable media library.
    * Windows shell integration (Fennec player places a context menu item group with open/add options).
    * Audio file preview (you can listen to a media file using headphones without interrupting the file which is being played; in order to experience this feature, you need to have two sound cards or multi-streaming enabled sound card).
    * Video zoom-in, zoom-out, vertical/horizontal scaling.
    * Dual subtitle display - you'll be able to select primary and secondary subtitles for video files, preferably in two languages.
