Listening to your favorite music and using other forms of media just got a little easier thanks to Spider Player, which is a free media player that offers some of the same features found on paid programs. Though the early version featured some major flaws and problems, the developer went back to the drawing board and repaired those issues. The downloads available today run perfectly.

This sleek media player is completely customizable. Use the program to create your own skin that fits over the player and changes the way it looks. Customizing the skin is so easy that you might find yourself going back and changing it every few days. It also lets you customize the app to include only the buttons and features that you need. Though it shows an equalizer, your playlist, and a playback window when you first launch it, you can close those smaller windows and keep only the pieces you want on the screen.

How many times have you found yourself listening to a song and wishing that it had a little more bass? With Spider Player, you can tune those songs to your liking. Use the features to add or remove bass, change the reverb, or even add some autotune features. If you like what you hear, you'll love the fact that it comes with its own CD burner. This burner lets you save copies of your favorite tunes and custom songs to a CD, but you can also transfer those songs to your music player.

The makers of Spider Player originally introduced a free version and a professional version, but the developers later released the pro program for free. As the developer no longer offers any updates, some users might find themselves looking at similar programs that developers improve and change. Those looking for something basic and easy to use will find that Spider Player is the best program of its type.

Fast response time is one of the key benefits of Spider Player. It responds faster than you might expect, which lets you quickly skip over songs in your playlist that you don't like or start a song over again. As a media player, it works with files of various types and lets you burn files of different types too. You can burn songs as WMA, WAV, MP3, or other types of files. Though the developers no longer produce updates for Spider Player, most users find that it's a strong app that works just as well as expensive paid players do.
