Music player Winyl adds internet radio, lyrics, aiff/ opus/ speex support


Vinyl Software has announced the release of Winyl 3.0, an extremely major update to its popular music player. A new Radios menu gives easy access to nine internet radio stations, and you can add more as required.

Lyrics now appear automatically whenever you play a recognized song. Well, usually -- they’re not yet visible in all skins (try iTunes if you have problems).

A much improved tagging module adds support for cover art and lyrics, as well as allowing multiple values in tags. It can now read and write tags to all formats, too -- including WAV.

The Library has a new view which organizes all your songs by their composer. It’s turned off by default: click Settings > Advanced and check "Composers" to take a look.

File format support has improved with the ability to play aiff, opus and speex files.

The new build also comes with a new default skin, improved performance and the obligatory bug fixes (we’re not sure what they are, but early feedback suggests it’s more reliable all round).

If any of this sounds appealing, but you’re not a current user, then good news: Winyl 3.0 introduces a portable version, allowing you to try it out with the absolute minimum of hassle.

If you’re running an earlier version, though, upgrading should also be straightforward. Vinyl Software says you can install the new build over the old one without problems.
