 Qplay stands for "quiet play", no window appears. It plays the song and exits.  I use this one inside of this is another qplay.exe, similar

 Both of above will play any /MMOS2 codec.

 This is missing codec from ECS. Vorbis/flac already in ECS.

Mplayer has the codecs builtin, that's why is large exectutable. Lxlite it, gui's for it include
SMplayer (large), Moosick (medium), Rplayer and Audiocentre (small)
