MusicCubeOne - A simple music player

MusicCubeOne is an utterly simple music player for Windows. The player’s overly simplified interface might not go down well on some users, but those who love minimalism will like it’s bare but attractive look.

The interface is neat with only three buttons visible. Most of it’s controls are hidden behind the right-click menu. MusicCubeOne can display either the playlist or the main player window with visualization but not both. When the main player is on display, the songs queued in the playlist can be viewed by hovering the mouse over a thin strip just below the seekbar. This strip functions as a second seekbar for the entire playlist.


When you switch to the playlist view you can view extended information about the songs such as album, year, bitrates, length etc. Rearranging is easily done be dragging the items using the mouse.


Files can be added by drag and drop or a file browser dialog designed to show extended information from the listed music files. This is similar to the information shown later on in the playlist.

MusicCubeOne plays the most common file formats, including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Windows Media Audio, m4a, flac/fla, aac, mp4/.m4a, MIDI and bunch of others.  Playback of Windows Media Audio however requires that the Window Media Format modules are installed.

MusicCubeOne’s memory footprint is low at around 20MB when playing and barely uses the CPU.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
