This is the very first important audio player that adds support to the new [open] .opus audio format.

Better than Vorbis & MP3, very good both for speech and for music encoding, this format is the future of audio coding.

Please help it gain traction, it deserves it.

After the death of ogg, an extremely superior codec to MP3, on what.cd, I am beginning to doubt if any format can overtake it until we have a paradigm shift in how we store music.

Hardware adoption is the key. Sure we can play any format on our computers but when we want to take music with us on phones or players we're usually left to choose between mp3, aac or perhaps wma. That's why niche codecs like these, no matter how technically awesome they may be, don't catch on.

Plus, with storage as cheap as it is, more and more people are using lossless codecs in their music libraries. That's how it is here. I rip in FLAC and use aac on my phone.
