A powerful media player for those running Windows

A review of Windows Media Player by Felix Cheng

Introduced with the release of Windows Vista, Windows Media Player 11 is available for those who are running Windows XP. It is an improved version of WMP from the Windows XP days.

Like previous versions of WMP, WMP 11 offers competent audio and video playback, can rip content from audio CDs to create Windows Media Audio (WMV) files and also allows for the burning of audio CD discs directly from the interface.

In addition to playing media, it includes a rather sluggish library system which catalogs and organizes your music and movie files. Data can be collected from multiple hard drives or network drives.

Windows Media Player 11 also introduces media sharing which allows one PC running Windows to share with other PCs which have WMP installed.

Users can freely download and install themes, plugins and visualizations for better personalization.
