Cross-platform and open-source Music Player designed to be simple and lightweight. If you want a player full of features, most of them you don't use, exaggerated eye-candy and a memory hog, take a look around , there are lots. However if you want a different player that doesn't distract you or wastes your time, KISS Player can be a great alternative.
As of now, it's alpha, usable, but lacks some minor features and needs more polishing. Suggestions and contributions are welcome.
Note: The name has nothing to do with the metal band or the act of kissing. It's an acronym for "Keep it simple, stupid" principle.

How to build
If you'd like to contribute and see KISS Player in your native language, please head over Transifex.
Change the language
On Windows, there is an option for this under settings.
On Linux, check the current locale with the command:
Check Arch's wiki for instructions on how to manage locales.
For CJK languages under Linux, due FLTK limitations, it is necessary to pass as argument the name of a font that supports CJK characters, i.e.
./kissplayer -f Code2000.
