I want a fairly simple music player:

Must haves:

  • Play FLAC.
  • Stop music when headphones pulled out.

What I'm looking for:

  • A similar browsing structure to Spotify. Ie. If you click the artist, you can see all their albums and browse that way.

  • Be able to delete albums/songs from the player.

  • Browse by file structure.

  • Has a widget.

I don't mind paying, but ideally will have a preview before paying.

I recommend Vanilla Music. It is free and open source, and pretty lightweight. It is available to download from Google Play or F-Droid.

It meets all of your requirements:

  • Can play MP3, OGG, FLAC or PCM formats
  • Option to pause the music when the headphones are unplugged (on Settings > Audio)
  • Can browse by artist / album / track, or browse by directories and files.
  • Allows deleting albums or songs from within the player.
  • Several styles and sizes of widgets to choose from
  • maybe also VLC would be interesting, but it is not sooo lightweight... Commented Jul 3, 2015 at 11:51
