VKPlayer - what's that?

Update: The problem with wrong artist names after search has been fixed. Please update to the new version 1.36 below!

VKPlayer is a free music player client for the popular networking site http://www.vk.com (more information can be found on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vkontakte).

NEW VERSION V1.36 Beta available!

now with PLAYLIST HISTORY and 
По-русски, English, Deutsch 







Simply install the player, login, download and listen to your favourite music online as you would do on http://www.vk.com
-
but with a lot more comfort.


VKontakte, the 2nd largest social network, offers users from all over the world the opportunity to chat with your friends, add photos and videos, and listen to your favourite music online. The network is wide-spread in russian-affine countries, but it's open for all and available in English, Deutsch, Español, Français, 한국어, ภาษาไทย and many more. If you feel unsure about it, take a look at its Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vkontakte

Since I felt somewhat unhappy about their built-in online music player, mainly because it only supports one playlist and does not allow to search while playing, I decided to write this small and free client which tries to combine the favours of a desktop music player with the availability of online music.

For a quick usage tutorial, take a look at the following page here:
http://vkplayer.blogspot.com/p/quick-introduction.html

Prerequisites/Installation:

Firstly you need an account on vk.com, which is an absolutely free of charge account similar to facebook. The site should turn up in your local language, but if it's not, go to the bottom of their page to change it.
If signed up, you can go on with the installation of the player:

  1. Get a free account on vkontakte.ru  GET FREE VK.COM ACCOUNT
  2. Install Adobe AIR
  3. Install the VK Player and start to dance!


Please feel free to comment and to report bugs in the discussion forums.

  5. Man, this is awesome! Can you also make it show the kbps rates of the songs?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Very very nice app.
    If we can select all with "ctrl+a" in the search sections it will be better.
    And the kbps or the file size field it will be awesome.

    1. Hello,

      I am using Windows 7 64 bit. Just updated the player and updated adobe air. The search section does not work- If I try to find an artist (like metallica etc) it does not give me a list from where i can load a song to my playlist and download it.

      Kind Regards,
      E.V.

    1. Try logging in to vk.com. The latest version (1.34 beta) dit not work for me either. It was solved when I went to vk.com and tried to login. It wanted my cell phone number to send me an activation code. Once I had gotten the activation code and entered it I reopened vkplayer and it worked.

    ^ that

    Next to that, could you add the following options;
    - Setup a directory where to download music BEFORE you download (Not that annoying but now I had to copy/paste all files afterwards and change the download directory)
    - Create an option to minimise to tray. (I like to have my taskbar clutter free)


    BTW running Windows 7 64bit with Windows 2000 layout as it is a work computer (so no graphical mumbo jumbo like pinning etc.)
