Note from the developer
ALPHA 2 is my personal player, not a commercial app.
It is designed to be the best for my needs, not to steal data from users. Therefore I get no income by publishing it.
However, ALPHA 2 Player is offered free of charge in the hope donations will allow to develop it further.
While ALPHA 2 will work forever (there is no time limit), after 3 months of use, I kindly ask you to get a license
if it suits you, or stop using it if it doesn't.
Anyway, while the Player itself is totally free, some components either require a patent license or are of such size that I cannot afford the download costs, so a license will also give you full access to the extra features.
Let's combine our ressources to make the Media player of the future.
The future of ALPHA 2
The future of Alpha 2 is ALPHA 3
ALPHA 3 is a Media player (Audio, Video, Images, Text) whose most important feature is ENCRYPTED media
that protect your photos, videos and texts.
It also has a new (amazing) UI that runs on Win, Linux and Android.
The current ALPHA 2 features will still be finalized (Karaoke, ...) but few new features are planned, unless requested by (registered) users.
Alpha Player (Alpha 1) was started in 2001 as there was no satisfactory players at the time.
It was rewritten in 2006 as ALPHA 2 Player and, at the insistance of friends, published in 2010.
A few hundred thousands download later it was removed as it was obvious the world still didn't understand the meaning of "If the app is free you're the product".
Of course I continued adding the features I needed and 10 years later it is now V 3.1 going on V 3.2
Alpha 1, now 20 years old. Still young!
