I think this is a pre beta for WMP9. Just look at it, the date is set to 2002 and the skin is uberbasic. And I don't trust the build#.

yea it looks more like a beta of mp9 than 10. Is there anything else different besides the look?

For me, this new version starts up quicker... so that's a positive thing.

This is definitely media player 10 released 22nd April 2004 by MS to testers. Been using it for some time but it’s not really stable and has lots of bugs which if you use any of the plugins for 9 (which also had loads of bugs still unresolved) are annoying. I take the view however that this is getting nearer and nearer to the industry recording institutes views and aspirations (a bit late now) and will have the ability to spot illegal sound files on your machine. That is if Microsoft has the nerve to implement it fully, which would almost certainly lead to a mass move away from media player and possibly XP or NT related systems for the home user.

If you have downloaded mpg’s on your machine with no licence media player 10 will flag then all, so convert them to wmf (files) which are more efficient anyway.

I like the little bar graphic meter on the bottom task bar but as was the case in the past all your play lists have to be re-located again and the “pops and clicks” have returned under certain circumstances. This is a long way away from being on par with 9 except for a smaller memory footprint and less resources. However you still can’t open two separate instances of the application as you could with the Win 95/98 version to enable you both to view and play three or four records simultaneously or cut and fade between different songs. This was supposed to be one of the original reasons for introducing 32bit apps. MS seems to have forgotten this. Crossfading does not address this issue.

Well that’s my view so far.

Yes, apart from look changes, I also find it faster to load/open, but I must admit that I don't use WMP9 very often, instead I usually use JetAudio 6 Pro ;)

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
