Windows Media Player 11 is a video and audio player that boasts a full library and plenty of extra features.
More than "just" a player
Imported directly from Windows Vista, this version of Windows Media Player, especially for machines running XP, looks (and acts) almost identical to the previous version, although you can add a personal touch by downloading themes, add-ons and visualizations to mold it to your taste.
A safe bet
There are definitely plenty of players with more features and support for more formats out there, but even so, Windows Media Player 11 plays its role perfectly, presenting no complications for the user. It's the perfect option for people who just want to watch their videos and listen to their music in peace!
Like its predecessor, Windows Media Player 11 lets you play both video and audio, extract audio CDs directly to WMA, or the reverse, in other words, burn videos and music to CD.
The Windows Media Player 11 library has been improved to work much better at maintaining our multimedia files in good order,whether they're coming from the hard drive, portable devices (like iPods or other MP3 players), or music that you've bought online.
