Keep It Simple
The Phresh media player is a simple and intuitive desktop app for Windows, Mac and Linux. It plays media files.. end of story.
In turn, I pays great attention to the naturality, easy and clear usage with much (and usual) keyboard shortcuts and some mouse gestures.
The player has an right click menu also for more powerful support the handling.
PhreshPlayer knows read the ‘.srt’ subtitles also.
Keyboard shortcuts (hotkeys)
|L||toggle (show/hide) playlist|
|LEFT||seek -5 sec|
|RIGHT||seek +5 sec|
|T||toggle always on top|
|mouse move||show controls (auto hide after 1 sec)|
|leave cursor on controls box||show controls (still visible)|
|left doubleclick||toggle fullscreen|
|scroll up||volume increase|
|scroll down||volume decrease|
|left click on progressbar||seek to the point|
|right click||menu open|
|videoplayer area||clear actual playlist, and refill with the new files|
|playlist area||append files to the actual playlist|
The application can read folders also, but just 1 level deep:
- file level 3
- file level 2
- file2 level 2
- file level 1
- file2 level 1
level 1 and level 2 files will append also to the playlist if you drop in at the same time, but level 3 file in Folder2 won’t.
Supported file types
- ogg (ogv)
Still I see today ‘.avi’ and ‘.wmv’ files, so..
.. if you drop an (or more) ‘.avi’ or ‘.wmv’ file into the player,
then convert files to ‘.mp4’ (and add it to playlist automatically after conversion).
The player can convert files while playing other (playable) files. To this just click ‘X’ to close/hide modal.
Why?! - I maked the n + 1 mediaplayer..
I’m sick of so much bullsh.t features in modern mediaplayers like kmp, vlc, etc. Filters, view modes and more..
Other mediaplayers like bs player can’t handle a simple file drop in 2018. Man..
The most features, functions, addons, plugins is unnecessary for general users, sorry guys thats fact..
At last time I used PotPlayer, but at this time is overhyped too. – and of course changed the interface and handle hotkeys & buttons. – I love it..
The lot of extra features is it would be awesome, but finaly the program can’t do that normally what it created first.
So I make my own..
I don’t planning more features into the updates (exept audioTrack support & changes if will supported..), only neccessary bug fixes.
You’re accustomed to this.. and I will NOT change!
