I dugg musikCube this morning after downloading and trying out this lightweight, simplistic looking music player. The download is just under 3MB, and its 2 – 4 MB memory usage while playing is far better than Windows Media Player 11’s 48MB!


Fancy GUIs are nice but when I thought about it, my media player is usually minimised anyway. When minimised musikCube hides itself in your system tray, popping up balloon messages when tracks change.


Its functionality can be increased with plug-ins, including an audioscrobbler plug-in, which means my last.fm profile will start getting updates! I’m going to give it a go for a while, it’s well worth a try.
