...And I was wondering if anyone is using or should I really update to it? I know a guy that was beta testing it and he was not happy with it. Any thoughts?

I don't like it. It's way too confusing.

It looks a little different, the "buttons" are in better places, and organizing the library seems a little better. But other than that there's no real difference that I can see.

Works fine for me so far.

If you get SP2 you'll end up with it anyway, so if you are planning on SP2 you might as well wait.

It seems to work for me. No complaints.

I'm still holding off on SP2.

SP2 is useless if you have a decent AV and firewall software

I actually have the beta of SP2. There's not much to it except the firewall that comes with it.

Thanks for the replies. WMP is not my main media player but I was just wondering if it was a most to upgrade it.

only if you want Janus Copy Protection or the new microsoft music download site.

I think MP10 is much better, the bars and waves (when playing music) is much better and the full screen view really zooms in to full screen unlike MP 9 and the older versions.

:eek: I just played a song in WMP10 and it sounds beautiful. *Hugs WMP*

Winamp sounds better. :p

You gotta mess with the equalizer though

Mex

Winamp? Bah. That sucks. I used it and sound only came out two speakers. It was horrible.

Anthony

You set it up wrong. :p

WMP shouldn't affect the sound quality. :confused:

Its a crummy media player, but not a bad media library.
Since i don't need a media library i use media player classic, which is a much better media player.

Unfortunately it won't be long until some other software i use will probably require a WMP upgrade, even if i don't use WMP. sigh.
And it is probably gonna be the only software you can use with MS PMCs and anything that supports janus (such as napster). BUt since i want to stay as far away from that as possible (and avoid installing as much bloatware as possible) i'm staying well away from it until i'm FORCED to upgrade it.

Microsoft is a scam. I've got SP2 but haven't installed it yet. I'm sort of afraid to ya know. Any time MS "fixes" something, something else needs a patch.

I use winamp and Mediaplayer both and I prefer winamp actually. To me, the skins and stuff just get in the way. I need a player that plays sound well, anything else is a gimmick that will need a patch.

Darnit! No WMP10 for win98! (Atleast they aren't allowing me to it)

I watch DVD's on PowerDVD. I listen to mp3's on Winamp.

As for the rest, Media Player Classic (search for it) 0wnz all versions of WMP post 6.2...

I haven't tried WMP 10, but I imagine it's the same deal. Just more spyware and resource hogging? No thanks.

hmmm? is it XP only? Is that to do with the copyright restrictions built into XP not being in earlier versions?
I downloaded the whole doom3 demo and then realised i couldn't install it... :(

WMP 10 is a nice improvement. Unfortunately still hasnt got any good functions on quickly selecting a song from a long playlist.

The best function is that when i run my playlist, and then something else (some kind of movie or in this case that chewbacca song from rp), i can afterwards click back and will resume from my playlist where i was in the song. So i'm happy

It told me-

Setup has detected that you are running Windows 98 or Windows ME. Click below to start your download

Windows Media Player 7.1 (Windows 98/Windows ME)

:(

And I use WMP 9 Series! :mad:
