I need some ideas for a windows midi player. I have tried vlc which according to what I have found on google I need fluidsynth. Fluidsynth unfortunately doesn't have any documentation on how to install fluidsynth for windows. I also tried klite mega pack which I am SHOCKED won't play it. I thought it had every codec package. It says its missing a codec or filter.

I use Media Player. QuickTime 4 also works well.
Design feedback requested:
IHAtool - IpHlpApi tester; call various functions and report results
--status-> framework is solid; 22 api's fully supported; preview release coming soon
ComDlg32 wrapper - ComDlgEx meets IpHlpApi wrapper
--status-> PrintDlgExW working in latest SumatraPDF 8^)
Future projects: ImportPatcher40 - dialog interface; Kexter - IP40+Ktree+Kexstubs

1. Foobar2000 + foo_midi plugin is a self-contained setup that doesn't depend on a sound card or drivers. The program comes with a few software emualation variants of the Yamaha OPL3. It supports most VST instruments, such as the Yamaha S-YXG50. I think it requires at the very least an XP SP3 system (won't work on SP1 or 2k).

2. Yamaha MidRadio. A player with a VST instrument built in (S-YXG2006LE). It is in Japanese, which isn't a problem considering it's simple player. But the interface has some oddities that arise from the fact it's made for a foreign culture. Actually works on Windows 98 and up. English version with an earlier S-YXG50.

3. VanBasco Karaoke Player. A more featured player offering some control over the performance, such as visualizing and muting individual instruments. Does not include a synthesizer, and plays on whatever sound card is installed into the system.

4. A sequencer such as REAPER would offer even more control and editing options, as well as rendering to an audio file.

Out of all synthesizers, the S-YXG50 (MU50 sample set) has the most balanced General MIDI sound set.

I have no idea which programs are compatible with Windows Eight. That's the price you pay for early adoption: you've got no software. The first two choices are highly likely to work, being standalone programs.
