Tiger Byte Media Player (beta) is a free media player that helps to play many supported audio video files and comes with a built-in radio player. Thus, you can play media files available on PC and can enjoy listening to many popular radio stations, right from your desktop. It provides separate sections to add audio and video files (avi, mp3, mp3, mpeg, wma, aif, etc.), create playlists, and play them. In comparison with many advanced media players, it comes up with a feature of searching different versions of current audio song online.
You can either search YouTube or Google search engine for song’s different versions (acoustic, nightcore, remix, etc.), if available. Thus, some of its features are really good. But still this beta version needs improvement, if this player is compared with feature rich media players. Such as, it should provide drag n drop support to add media files, take snapshots of video (like VLC media player), play animated gifs, ability to resize its interface, etc.
