    Tell me what you like about the new Windows Media Player 9 Series. Review it and post your comments about it in this thread.

    I love that Speed option, where you can speed up a song...that is so amazing. I love that....Makes you want to get up and dance fast and stuff. I like that....Make Rap songs to dance songs... :)

    The crossfading and volume leveling are still a little buggy. Sometimes it skips 3/4 of the song, while crossfading to another song.
    Volumeleveling sometimes lowers the volume in the middle of a song and that is very irritating, I actually have to adjust my speakervolume again.
    Also, it runs kinda slow, slower than WMPXP (=8) that is. Perhaps it's the new design with all the colors (cool when adjusting the color in real time).
    In short: a nice start, but not completely bugfree, but hey, it's a beta AND a M$ product, so what did you expect (j/k).

    My favorite feature of WMP9 is the ability to minimize it to the taskbar. I like all the other function too, but that's my favorite new feature. :)
