If you work at a movie shop then I believe that this is the best application that there is to burn music or audio recordings to your blank or empty cd.You can also sync the items that you want synched. You can compose a playlist and then when you are satisfied you can decide whether to play it or not. When you plug in your mobile phone you can decide on which medium to play your music and for me I choose windows media player because for me it is the best although it has a very outdated interface I just love it the way it is. There is a music section that is categorized into artist album and genre.

A GOOD MEDIA PLAYER THAT IS VERY SIMPLE AND EASY TO USE

By Hande Njr

On Thursday, September 4, 2014

This is initially the default media player in all Microsoft windows operating systems which is developed by Microsoft, besides windows operating system it was also initially available for Mac OS 7 ANS X and Solaris but production was discontinued. This media player has a lot of capabilities besides the normal ones. These are; ripping of music, copying of music to CDs, burning of discs, purchase of music from online platforms and synchronizing data with other devices like mobile phones. It was made available to the public in July 2009.

Its basic interface has functions buttons like File, view, play, tools and help. Each has various task capabilities which range from simple to complex. In addition there is play, burn and sync buttons which make it easy for the user to execute tasks. A few things can be customized like the players skin and it can be set as a default player by the pc users. It has core playback and library functions, where full media organization capabilities are handled like the arrangement of music in albums, genres and dates. It supports WAV and mp3 media formats besides the normal Windows media codecs. It has a great visualizations package.

Microsoft did a good job on this product and many users will attest to it because of its performance it offers. I like its simple interface and I use it on my pc. The only downside is that it doesn’t support a lot of media formats but it usually gives an error message if the media is not supported.

Pros

  • It has a simple and basic interface.
  • It has core playback and library functions.

Cons

  • It does not support a lot of media formats.
  • it usually gives an error message if the media is not supported.
