Smart Jump List use

With a right click on the taskbar while MusicPeek is playing, you can access features like lyrics search, opening the containing folder, and even editing ID3 metadata if you've the fantastic MP3Tag software installed.

An audio spectrum hooked to the taskbar

MusicPeek attach the playing track audio spectrum above its taskbar button. The spectrum's colors are customizable and allow you to go from pristine white to the most AESTHETICS form.

MusicSeek, start a track or folder the Terminal way!

MusicSeek is a little command line utility bundled with the MusicPeek player. You have just to enter a track name to play it instantly! Accessing to your favorite songs was never so easy.

Cover as Desktop/Chrome wallpaper and User Picture

If you enable this feature using the "MusicPeek Settings" tools, the current track cover will replace your user avatar under Windows 7 (or ClassicShell if you use Windows 10), along with your Desktop/Google Chrome wallpaper. This one will be blurred to balance the low resolution and make things more aesthetic. Don't worry, your original wallpaper will be restored once the playback done.

A black and white display option is also available.

Cover as Cursor Pointer

The question here is not why, but why not?

A screensaver for every music lover's delight

The "MusicPeek Tiles" screensaver displays as a mosaic the covers of your tracks, switching them at random intervals. Classy!

A Web Server

Useful to check what's playing on while away from your computer. Also, you can fetch the data thanks to the (upcoming) multiple outputs:

and the server's root (port 75, ex. http://localhost:7575/) provides a smart way to know the current track while browsing:

Keeping the screen On

Some All-in-One computers tend to cut the audio output when the monitor goes to sleep. You can force the machine to stay alive with MusicPeek. Show it who's the boss.

Support for Windows SideShow (Windows 7)

For abandon-vapor-ware nostalgics out there, a preliminary support displaying informations about the playing track.


MusicPeek can naturally stream metadata to some gadgets, you know the dusty ones waiting in an obscure closet, along with your nostalgia...


If you are lucky enough to have an old, dusty i-Buddy from the MSN era, you can give it a second life! (wait... did I make a joke?) Once plugged in, MusicPeek will set the angel's head color accordingly to the player's progressbar! But there can be more... 🥚

Prizee ecobutton

And if you're also the owner of an "Prizee ecobutton" (used at the dawn of the current century as a physical "Hibernate" button), lost somewhere in your old stuff collection, you can use it as a MusicSeek launcher! As for the i-Buddy, only to plug, nothing to set!

Logitech diNovo MediaPad

MusicPeek exploits the MediaPad functionalities by displaying the Title, Artist, Album and even warns you if you got Thunderbird or Outlook mail.
