WMP11 rocks. Haven't really had any issues with the beta, but I'm looking forward to the final release. :)

iTunes 7 has generally been a pain in the ass. For some reason if I move its program folder in the start menu it starts a new installation and creates the folder again. It's also been crashing with the album art view. And I also get another weird error where if I've been listening to some music for an hour or so...some tracks start sounding distorted.

Somebody figure out a way to use WMP11 with an iPod please :)

Did you download the update to 7.0 that was released a week or two after 7.0 was released? Sucks that it caused problems for PC users, I love 7.0 compared to prior versions.

Is there a compatible Codec pack? I can't seem to get WMP11 to play anything other than wmv files.

I usually use WMP just for music (and VLC for video), so I'm not sure.
Doesn't ffdshow work? I thought I remembered installing it on an older Vista build and was able to play some xvid files in WMP11...

Coolio. Looking forward to trying out both IE7 and WMP11.
You won't have a choice of "trying" after the new year. MS will force all users to upgrade to IE7 through Windows/MSUpdate (including autoupdate) a few weeks after the public release. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
