One of the most robust, easy to use, and customizable audio players I've ever used.

Not just one of the most extremely customizable audio player/managers out there, but one of the most customizable apps of all time. It's a must-have app for the music listening/collecting hobbyist. It's closest competitor, Songbird, may be slicker, more user-friendly out-of-the-box and generally an audio app with many positive points, but it simply can't manage music on the grand scale that foobar2000 does. Though foobar2000's learning curve can get steep in certain areas, but mostly only when it comes to customization and management on a level that the average person will probably never care about.

Help!!

I need an app for my android mobile that I could program to start and stop, about 4 hours playing and with loop play. I am looking for something like Amarok or Rhythmbox, but for Android 4.1 Any idea? It is something like an alarm but for a long time, if it is free is good but if not it is also good.

Thanks

Far and away the best audio player/music library organizer out there. I have yet to find an audio format that was not supported natively or by a simple "installation" (just drag' n' drop into the 'components' folder) of one of the many optional components (Like Ipod management and such) that the active and friendly community created.
And just in case you did not want to deal with the "steep learning curve," there are a number of quick setup options to choose from. Also the "layout editing mode" where you can adjust the User Interface in real-time is fantastic.
Although it is, sadly, not open-source, it does have a VERY expansive SDK (Software Development Kit).

Fast, light-weight, and downright elegant, I honestly can't sing it's praises enough.

Insanely customizable and with no doubt the best music player out there. To bad there's no linux version.

Extremely lightweight, feature-rich and runs great even on ancient hardware. Only problem I have with it is the lack of source code which for ethical and security reasons puts me off.

I use it as my main player. Lots of features, lots of supported formats, plugins and so on. It can't be beaten on customization. I spent a lot of time learning how to use skins. Some UI designers are really gifted at making foobar skins.

examples :

It's sometimes difficult to set a skin depending on your version of Foobar, some components require updates but it's by far the best all-rounder player you can find...and it's free.

about 15weeks ago I made the switch from winamp to foobar and have not been back since. Foobar is a lot better then winamp.
