FLELE is a music player ghost made in the Japanese community at least as early as 2007, but its original release date is unknown. The ghost is set up to allow for many different shells, and many have been created for it. Shells made by members of the Ukagaka Dream Team community are listed on this page, but there are countless others that exist elsewhere on the internet.

It is one of the most widespread ghosts, and became popular with English users long before the Ukagaka Dream Team formed, even spawning its own communities for creating and sharing FLELE shells.

An English translation for the menus has been created by Zarla, and can be downloaded here.

Features

  • Music player
  • Multiple shell support
  • 13 bundled shells
  • A special image for the main menu if the user is using either of the balloons made for FLELE

Music player

FLELE's music player uses two SAORI. The user may drag and drop music files onto the ghost to add songs to the playlist, and then use hotkeys, hotspots, or a special right click menu to control the player.

The user can also drag and drop urls of sound files on the web, and FLELE will download them and add the song to the playlist. Sound files are saved in a temporary folder, and must be moved elsewhere if the user does not want them to be deleted.

Additionally, FLELE can play songs from CDs.

File types supported by the MCIAudioR SAORI are supported.
