With this new player we will have the option of separating the playlist of what we now hear and what we have stored in the library, so you play the 2 lists simultaneously with different players called Playing and Library.

Another feature of Windows Media Player 12 is that it supports video formats such as H.264, AAC audio, DivX and Xvid, MPEG2, WMV, MP3, etc ... and when the player does not recognize the file we tried to reproduce tell us where to download the codec you can play it without problem.

As this player invented by Microsoft and be built into their operating systems, this is the player most used by users and the new version as mentioned above supports any format and is aesthetically renovated is an excellent choice in terms of media players.

Unlike what happened in previous versions, Microsoft has decided not to publish the new version of Windows Media Player for other operating systems such as Vista or XP. These last two, therefore, will remain with version 11 without possibilities to enjoy the new features included in the 12th


  • Removing the playback mode embedded in the taskbar
