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 :)

CNET says new features found in iTunes 7 were ripped off from WMP11 =)

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.

Yup. Who came to the market first is what counts though. Watch people start saying WMP 11 ripped it off from iTunes.

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...

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. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
