GS Player is simply an audio player for Pocket PC. It can play MP3, Ogg Vorbis and WAV files. It has plugins to allow WMA, AAC, and MP4 playback too.
Combine this with a very good playlist manager and the possibility to have your own skins (some can already be found on the author's website).
What's more, you can play audio streams from the network and there is an equaliser with extra bass and surround sound. You can also listen to web radio stations. You can also use Shoutcast playlists.
If you are a developer and would like to add some more features (like support for more formats) you can get the source code with the program.
- MP3 playback using the MAD 0.15.0b.
- Ogg Vorbis playback.
- Wave format playback.
- HTTP streaming playback (MP3 / Ogg Vorbis).
- SHOUTcast streaming playback (MP3 / Ogg Vorbis).
- ID3 v1/v1.1 support.
- PLS/M3U playlist support.
- 10 bands equalizer (MP3 playback only).
- Surround / Bassboost effects.
- Reverb / Echo effects.
- Skin support.
- Hardware button mapping.
- Noiseless playback (See decoder tab in options dialog).
- Sleep Timer.
- Hold (Lock hardware buttons).
- Pocket PC / Pocket PC (WM 5.0 / WM6) support.
You can download the skins, plug-in and source code for this program from the author homepage.

On my accounts are the Omnia and Omnia 2. When I moved to a different state, I truly missed a good radio station. I tried to stream it on my phone with the Windows Media Player Mobile for 3 or 4 months with no luck even after endless web searches for solutions. Finally a noticed a link to this player. It was so simple: I downloaded it on my phone, installed it, put in the address, and it worked the first time (and every time). THANK YOU THANK YOU THANKS for this awesome (and free!) software. Plus the sound quality is so good that I can hook my phone to my car's auxillary jack or home system for cd quality playback. AWESOME software! Thanks!
***** [Sep 11, 2010] by JD using HTC Touch Pro 2
YES! I downloaded several other programs before almost giving up. I thought I'd try one more reccomended player and it was this one. Lo and behold, it worked out of the gate! I used TMCP on my Palm Treo but it didn't play nice with WinMo 6.5 and the TP2. I needed a player to play audio streams from radio stations and this one has worked so far.
***** [Apr 3, 2010] by ST using Samsung Omnia II
I used this great software for years with my old HP hx4700 and it worked always very good. Now I moved to use Smasung Omnia II and I met small problem. Software plays ok when display is ON. When I use display OFF, each approx. 10sec. Play stop and start again. Any idey what to do, please? Is it a bud for WM6.5 or/and GS Player?

I used GS on my old PDA and liked it. It works well on the phone apart from it locking everything when the screen has been off for a while. I can't seem to get control again even though the audio is still playing

This player does not work with a bluetooth headphone. I have a WiRevo headphone. While I can hear music, the remote controls on the headphone do not work. Not only that, the controls were disabled for the WHOLE SYSTEM. This is not acceptable. I tried to use the remote controls on the bluetooth headset in Windows Media player and they no longer worked. Once I uninstalled GSPlayer and did a soft reset I was able to use the remote controls again. (Remote controls are play, stop, fastforward, rewind.) I won't be using GSPlayer and do not recommend it if you want to use your remote controls on your bluetooth headphones.
***** [Aug 21, 2008] by Nailz using Ipaq 2210
Awesome media player - I use it mainly for streaming Shoutcast radio stations via a wireless adaptor and it works great. Tutorial here: http://palmtops.about.com/od/pocketpclearningcente1/ss/StreamingPPC_3.htm
***** [Jul 22, 2008] by axim x51v using x51v Wm 6.1
Finally decided to go for gsplayer instead of mortplayer, and looks i'll stick with it. Some remarks/tips/suggestions: There's lots of skins available, but mostly for VGA. Simply doubling ths size of the bmps makes them work for VGA. I did not manage to upload whole folders, so now i create playlists on my desktop, synch them through activesynch as ASX, open the playlist in TCPMP (which i use for video), and save as M3U. Only wish: some cursor or highlight on the current song in the playlist.
***** [Jun 24, 2008] by PSC using Asus A696
Works great on my Asus MyPal A696. But, if you want multitasking while listening to MP3s using GSPlayer, you have to set the processor to Normal or Maximum mode. Apart of that, it's THE BEST FREE PLAYER for WM 6! Thanks to the authors for this great piece of software! Keep on doing that! I call GSPlayer "Winamp for Pocket PC".
***** [Jun 24, 2008] by PSC using Asus A696
EXCELLENT! This program could be called "Winamp for Pocket PC". It has the most functions of the good old Winamp - and YES, GSPlayer can load whole directories with music files: Menu - File - Find File... and you'll have a complete list of the folders from your PPC. Select the desired folder and click OK.

** [May 22, 2008] by Phat D using E-Ten Glofiish M700
The only thing that is good in this player is thats its free, the interface goes too far down and this really p***es me off the "skins" that you cant find on any reasonable web site. can you please fix this for WM6 and with better interface. almost forgot for some reason it does not save my setings after a soft reset please fix all of this then I'll admit that this is a good player. Thanx.
***** [Apr 23, 2008] by EFN using O2 Xda Flame
I have been searching high and low for a trully usable player. Before this I have to be content with TCPMP to play my audio files and no other player can play them because my Xda Flame is actually running on a tweaked SDHC driver to allow SDHC MicroSD - this resulted in massive song skipping and host of other problems. Only TCPMP seems to work. BUT NOW! this GSPlayer is a GODsend. I will pay the developer $ just for that. Superb simple interface and utterly stable.
***** [Apr 12, 2008] by Jivan using HP IPAQ hx2790
All Pocket PC manufacturer should pay you royalty to include this software in every unit as a standard music player. Thank you.
**** [Feb 25, 2008] by hierophant using Acer n310
Nice clean unfussy interface with good use of space for info unlike WMP with its big blank area. Shame it doesn't show album info, just artist+title. Couldn't get it to remember my settings after exiting until one day I used the sleep timer and they finally stuck. Took me ages to figure out how to add a whole folder to the playlist (use "find files" not "add files" - in fact you don't need saved playlists at all if your mp3s are organised well since you can just click&load whole dirs or subtrees.

I truly believe GSplayer is an awesome software! Thanks a lot to its creator. However, I would like to know if the ".php format" could be added as an option in the near future. I'm trying to listen to URL: http://www.rpp.com.pe/audios/0.php but the version i'm using on my pda V2.28 windows 5/6 version does not support this file. Pleaseeee let us have this option available!!

***** [Dec 28, 2006] by DPeters using HTC Wizard
Excellent software, I reccomend this to everyone with a Pocket PC. The guy who said that he can't throw it a folder containing a bunch of folders with mp3's is wrong, u just choose, menu->file->find file, make sure that the "include subfolders" option at the bottom is selected, and just point it to the folder containing ur songs, sit back and let the tunes low :) Thank you for this wonderful program.
**** [Dec 25, 2006] by CJ using iPaq hx2410
Fantastic piece of software. I'd rate it at 99%. It loses 1% because I can't throw a folder of more folders of MP3s at it and have it fill the playlist. Regardless, I'm seriously thinking about reorganizing my MP3s just to get the most out of this software. Absolutely fantastic, my hat off to you good sir.

This is the most amazing player i have encountered, uses little resources, plays all kinds of files, streams my favourite radio. I have been looking for this for months! Very configurable, every function can be attached to hardware keys, incl. screen off. Playlist editor is awesome. And contrary to what an other reviewer says, it is possible to play the songs in random order with the 'shuffle' option.

This software deserves 10 stars. Don't be fooled by the simple and clean interface. Underneath is a beautiful and powerful MP3/Ogg/Shoutcast player. I've tried many other apps that have fancy interfaces with all sorts of sliders and slick graphics, but with lousy software underneath. GSPlayer has a simple and easy interface with EXCELLENT software underneath. I'm absolutely impressed with its ability to handle shoutcast streams. I've been listening to my favorite streams without a single glitch. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this great software and for making it free! You rock!

I was looking for a player that could "easily" play internet radio streams (as opposed to microsofts solution which was one complicated solution to say the least). This does just that seamlessly. I typed in the address of KPIG (a delicious blend of music based out of Santa Cruz, CA) and bam, listening to the PIG in no time. You have to try it, you'll be addicted. It is PACKED with features!
***** [Jul 20, 2005] by Hubert Teo using Acer n30b
OH MY GOODNESS! This is da bomb! GREAT! It even supports streaming! Anyway, for a freeware player, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY SUPER... good work programmer... It reads ID3 tags correctly, draws peak meters, saves playlists, CONTINUES THE SONG EXACTLY FROM WHERE YOU STOPPED THE LAST CLOSE, has a 10-band equalizer that is absolutely cool, turns off the display to save battery (my battery sucks so this is perfect), loads quickly, plays on startup, has effects like surround, 3D Effect, reverb, echo, bassboost, supports M3U, MP2, MP3, MPA, OGG, PLS, RMP, WAV, has a sleep timer, and outputs totally great sound. It is even skinnable! RAD... AWESOME... erm, my vocabulary is bad, are there anymore compliments?
**** [Jul 15, 2005] by sl using Toshiba e335
ExCELLENT! By far the best, most functional player I've found. No funny bugs, no errors, reads id3 tags, and turns off the screen to save battery life. Just wonderful! HOWEVER. It has issues with the input recognition...somehow it's got the block recognizer on, and if I try to turn it to transcriber so it disappears, it chooses keyboard instead. No, I don't want ANY input except the buttons...but it won't go away, which is very troublesome because it hides the buttons onscreen. Good thing I mapped them to hardware buttons!! Still better than any of the competition I've tried!

I used this app since H1945, this is a must for every pocket pc users, simply it's the best, it supports shoutcast, and also supports on-demand playback from host/server/net hard drive, and it has auto-off function, no more worry to run out battery when listening shoutcast when going to sleep

I was using PocketMusic until it failed to play more than a second of a shoutcast stream :P. I didn't like the way it took over either. This blows it away! Simple clean interface, good features, solid, easilly custom skinnable. You should charge. For this I would definatly pay.

To the gent who authored this fine player... HAVE MY BABY! (and I'm a married guy ;-/ ) J/K! Seriously though, thanks and just what I've been after. I started some time ago on a grail to get streaming mp3 audio on a pocket device in the coverage of my wlan. First was a Palm T|T3 with pocket tunes and a makeshift bluetooth AP. That damn this would do nothing more than buffer continously, even on 24k streams. Don't even think about a GPRS connection. And then there was that Sansdisk WiFi card debacle. That Palm met an early demise not long ago. Figured I'd try PPC/Wince again - been a few years. My iPaq came with some goofey client/server thing - I just wanted to get .pls streams and so on. You helped me complete my quest. Also, not just the streaming audio feature but the interface and entire feature set is very well thought out IMHO. All I could ask for is an adjustable timeout for slow net connections. If I'm using BT - GPRS in a flakey area the player gives up too quickly even though I may have a strong but slow connection at the equivalent of probably a 9.6K dial-up connection. It'll work ok if you crank up the buffering - especialy useful when driving. Think using XMMS or Winamp on a laptop and with the buffers cranked up. I can typically pull a 56K stream all day driving around the LA area with little to no dropping . Just that initial start-up is a bitch ;-) I'll be really stoked if I can replace having a lappy in the car with my PPC for streaming tunes. I'll take a look at your source and see if I can contribute.

I can't believe what I'm Hearing, I couldn't get the Windows media player to play continious songs off my SD card? I had no idea that a free Player could deliver so much more than I had ever expected. A Surround mode, Echo.... and what I was actually trying to get was continual play of all my tunes on my SD card, which I just bought in Montreal while I was Vacationing, I figured I got burned, then I went to my all time helper (Google) and there you were GS Player!!! All I can say is WOW!!! Brian.

Simply THE BEST audio player for Pocket PC. I use WM2003 and listens to New Age and Classical music frequently. The sound quality is superb, the best compare to other PPC's audio players i ever tried. The sound is vibrant, dynamic and noise is minimal. WMP9 and Pocket Music are clearly no winner here. Heck, it even beats off my previous Clie. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the author of this program to make such a high quality sound program, gives us regular updates, and still manage to make it FREE!

This is the greatest player for PPC. It supports wav, mp3, ogg, shoutcast. However, it has problem on wm2003SE, on cancel button, the text is gone... and there's a small deal, on the option it should be "Show Peak Meter" not "Draw Peek Meter"

EXCELLENT PRODUCT!!!! No registation procces like many other PPC products. Great playback, easy interface, very compatible. A must have for shoutcast listeners. You don't see great freeware products like this often enough.

Searched long and hard for a player went to pocketmusic (pocketmind), even tried mort player. But none of those compared to this, the features everything. Only down part is that you cant add multple files. But who cares its FREE!!!! Top quality player for free.

Thank you for recommending a great player ! Of course, much gratitude to the talented and generous programmer for creating a wonderful software for the PPC community. Keep up the good work!

Wonderful software, is going to replace Pocket MVP on my device. I just got fed up with that programs bugs and crashes! I wish the author would include integration with his other great program. GS Player for MIDI, one player for everything would rock!

Excellence in all the aspects, the best piece I have found... in the scale of 1-10 is certaintly an 11.

I use it playing music live at gigs in a band with backing tracks. I've download all the alternatives even the ones costing money and this is the most stable and responsive player for live use. You should be charging a nominal amount for it. The improovements that would help its use as a live player are: Can the PLAY command be mapped to a button other than the 'action' push of the down/up/left/right of the IPAQ scroller? I know you can map the PLAY/STOP or PLAY/PAUSE command but, say, if you scroll through the playlist and highlight a track down the list (while the current track is playing) and you then want to play the highlighted track as opposed to the next track, you have to use the very dodgy 'action' button on the IPAQ. It would be much better to be able to use one of the other buttons which are a lot more definite than the action button. Maybe I've missed it and you can do it anyway or you might be able to include it in the next revision??

Just add WMA (Windows Media) playback support and it will be perfect!

Good piece of software! But pre-buffer options seems don't work properly. Since I use it with my CFII 2.2Gb it needs an option to load entirely a song (I think prebuffer make this!), so my microdrive will stop once loaded! Take care please!!! ;-)

This is the most frequently used app on my PPC, and I've been a user since 0.81 - it keeps getting better and better each time. I would like to see more advanced skinning support and resizeable button bar, so I can use my fingers instead.

This is the best audio player out there and it's free!!!
***** [Apr 16, 2004] by Singh using Ipaq 5550
Definately the best audio player for ppc. I use this over in wifi home network without any problems. Its fast, reliable and supports many formats. A program to download!
***** [Mar 29, 2004] by RyanFoxx using HP 2215 CF 2.2MD
Seriously great sounding player with a preamp,and effects. Real audio processing capabilities. Clear fonts, simplistic layout makes this one of the best mp3 players for the Pocket PC!!
***** [Mar 29, 2004] by Borries Kukowski using Dell Axim
Nice software ... but it would be great to have an option to play the titles of a given playlist in RANDOM order ... so it won´t be boring after a while.
***** [Mar 24, 2004] by Jon using Ipaq 4150
Fantastic. Very much like pocket player except completely free and full featured in every way. I use it mainly to stream shoutcast stations to my PPC over wifi and it works wonderfully. The skin it comes with isn't great though, here is a windows media player style one i made for it http://blackford.customer.netspace.net.au/files/GSPlayerMediaTheme.zip

Whow! This is THE mp3-player you need! Plays streaming mp3s and local audio files. Key mapping is perfect, finding audiofiles is flawless and very easy and the interface is simple and perfect. The playlist is shown in the main screen. Plays shoutcast playlists directly from www.shoutcast.com. Really, this is awesome! Windows Media player? yeah right.... pity I can't uninstall it :)

Very nice software, allow me to listen internet radio over my wireless home network. Three more feature needed to be really useful for internet streaming:
1. To allow to "Paste" a URL into Open URL (not to type it all the time).
2. Remember played URL in Open URL combo (now seems to remember only last one).
3. A favorite URL menu (to save URL to play from).
Beside this, this is a really good player.

This is just ONE player that can play streaming MP3. Go to www.shoutcast.com and enjoy!!! Big thanks to author of gsplayer.
***** [Jan 25, 2004] by yp/markus using Compaq iPaq 4150
Really a great piece of software, just set up an icecast2 server to listen to music via wlan at home using gsplayer. Lots better than stupid, buggy media player...
***** [Jan 5, 2004] by Dave using HP IPAQ 5450
Excellent piece of software, even if the author asked a price i would pay for it , Microsoft TAKE NOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
***** [Dec 3, 2003] by kr using Axim
This is the only player I have found to play streaming mp3's (like shoutcast and live365). Plays all bitrates including 128k 44kHz, over my home wireless network. Sound is great, features are great. Beats the crap out of the windows media player streams. Dreamy thanks to the author.
**** [Nov 26, 2003] by mingkee using HP 1945, PPC 2003
This is cool. It can run all mp3/ogg/m3u/pls files. Supports shoutcast.
**** [Nov 26, 2003] by Chester using HP iPaq 2210
This is the only free Ogg player (and I've searched far and wide) that isn't flaky. It plays music and does it simply! No hassle!
