This media player I used is available only in Windows 7. It supports multi format media including vulnerable songs from the library of iTunes and flip videos. It also accommodates almost all codecs, especially video formats which are found on the internet. Another feature is the improved library which supports iTunes media, except for DRM protected tracks.

This media player also has new streaming features. It is suitable for any home devices with Windows 7 operating system. It can play music and videos remotely from the road to my house.

For easy preview, this software media program I used has new playback controls and 15 seconds preview of songs for easy access to mostly played media. Another feature I experienced is the task bar mini viewer that adds assistance to Jump Lists.

Denouement of this proprietary software media app is very user friendly and the advancement to accommodate media files from iTunes.
