The simplest multimedia player!

VSMP stands for Very Simple Multimedia Player and it is a very small, light and easy to use music/video player, plus image viewer. It supports all multimedia files as Microsoft's Media player does, however it doesn't require Media player to be installed, since it is based on codec's.
Most modern multimedia players consume a lot of system resources just to play a single file. If you are like me and the only thing you want is simply playing media files, then VSMP is the program you need.
VSMP offers only the basic characteristics a media player would have (play, pause, stop, seek, playlist, volume control, full screen view etc).
VSMP is created to replace the old multimedia 2000 player


The program uses codec's to play media files. If you don't have installed codec's in your system, I recommend installing K-Lite Codec Pack.
Download the suitable package from this site: Codec guide

Tip (windows NT4, 2000, XP, Vista and 7): Even if after installing the codec pack the program refuses to play, try this tip.
Open regedit and go to the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\MCI32
Search for the entry "MPEGVideo". If it doesn't exist create it (string). Either way make sure the value of that entry is set to "mciqtz32.dll".
In next versions this procedure will be done by the program.

Attention: VSMP is not associating any media files by default. You must associate them with the program, manually (from windows "open with" dialog). This will change in next versions.
