Billy - Media Players Can't Get Lighter

Just 4 days ago I told you about Quintessential Media Player.
But the day I started using QMP I had also installed another media player called Billy. It was very small a program that I didn't try to run it that day. I thought it wouldn't be having any features I wanted.
But wait! This 665 KB (with setup and 357 KB without setup) media player can do anything including managing playlists, playing shuffled, have a tiny mode, calculate total playlist time, have sleep timer, rename multiple items, jump to playing file, a softmute (30 % of volume) and every one of those functions have a keyboard shortcut too. Even seek can be done with cursor keys. And there is a tiny visualisation too. Moreover under the seek bar it shows you the total time, elapsed time and remaining time all at once. And in the status bar it shows you the properties of the file, the number of files in the playlist, play mode, etc. What not, there is a find option which can be used to search any file in the playlist (and it can search within track information too)

And the most thrilling part is it uses only under 1 MB of resources while running for itself (+ the size of the song)

My God!
At last I have found the truly lightest media player... It's Billy...
