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medium to play your music and for me I choose windows media player because for me it is the best although it has a very outdated interface I just love it the way it is.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.

Windows Media Player 12: An exceptional solution to keep entertained!

By Elizabeth Tweetee

On Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Windows Media Player is back with minor facelift and enhanced file format support, to prevent users from migrating to third-party media players like VLC. With its built-in burn feature and automatic media import support, it stands out as an exceptional entertainment solution. Here’s my review…

I mostly use this software for wireless streaming (throw) videos on my smartphone on PC. It delivers high-quality video and audio playback over WiFi without any hassle. I haven’t seen any hanging or error as on some other players. You can utilize this facility by simply checking options under ‘stream’ drop-down list. It’s a plus point of WMP12 as most players encounter lag during such playbacks.

WMP12 handles HD videos pretty well even if video card driver is not set-up on PC. It proves the software’s efficiency. There’s no motion blur issue with this player. You can load videos of almost any resolution if your PC is adequately powerful.

Burn function on WMP12 lets you create media disks without depending on software like Nero Burning ROM. It’s a nice addition. Burning parameters like speed can be adjusted. You’re free to choose disk names.

Verdict:

Most important feature of WMP12 is that it is a part of Windows. It’s integrated with the OS and functions flawlessly without using up lion’s share of system resources. Using HD files is no more a hassle. Also, it supports a wide range of audio and video files. Overall, it’s a great player. I rate it 8.6 out of 10!

Pros

  • Handles High Definition videos flawlessly
  • Hassle free streaming over WiFi networks
  • Works well even without video card driver
  • Disk burn function comes built-in

Cons

  • Problems with some audio formats still persists
