UltraPlayer 2.0 is now the only lightweight media player application with fully integrated video playback.

The UltraPlayer 2.0 plays MP3, WAV, CD Audio, AVI, MPG, Windows Media content, and Internet radio streams. UltraPlayer features a dual-mode, intuitive interface with UltraSkins and visualization modules. The feature-packed application allows users to play, build and manage playlists, tune to and record Internet radio streams, play video files and streams, search for music, convert CD tracks to MP3s (with the addition of the EasyMP3 module), convert MP3s to WAV files, set the SmartAlarm, and much more.

UltraPlayer also features embedded BullsEye™ ad impressions available for campaigns aimed at the emerging digital audio and streaming video market. The customizable interface of UltraPlayer can also be co-branded and licensed for OEM distribution, music and video promotion, or other marketing efforts that require a flexible, high-performance media player application.
