USER REVIEWS

Windows Media Player 12 for Windows 7 or subsequent versions.

On Friday, November 27, 2015

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

Pros

  • Removing the playback mode embedded in the taskbar
  • Native support for H.264 video files

Cons

  • The few innovations offered by the new edition can not be used by users of previous versions of Windows

Windows media player is an amazing application whose main purpose is to create a playlist and you can also use this player to play your music and videos.It is just like the vlc media player although I find vlc more advanced because it has some attractive features.

In this player you can synch devices and play music that is in those devices on your pc.For example when you connect your mobile phone with your pc they will be synched and all the music in your phone will be played on your pc.Another features is you can burn the disks here for later use.What id did not like about the windows media player is the fact that the user interface is very outdated I mean there I no graphics whatsoever but I still use it up to date.

Play your songs and videos through streaming from your car to your home through media player application

By Beatrice Tan

How can you resist using a built in media player application tool with lots of skins and supports tons of file formats? Because of my busy day schedule work schedule and my graduate studies at night, I find it difficult to look for media player application that is open source and versatile with other platforms and supports multi formats.

I tried using this built in media player application with my Windows Operating System which allows me to open MP3s, MP4s, and Flip Videos. Next amazing feature of this tool is the remote media streaming which allows me to play MP3s and MP4 streams at my desktop computers or mobile devices from other location like audio player inside the car. Another fascinating features are the smarter DVD playback, Jump Lists and song previews for 15 seconds.

The bottom line is that this media player application has evolved through time. It has now new features that you will surely enjoy like what I did. I am a real fan of this remote media streaming and smarter DVD playback. I will definitely continue to explore this tool to maximize its features.

Pros

  • An extensible and rock-solid application
  • It has great psycho acoustic effects

Cons

  • It has weak playback control on some file types
  • It does not handle photos
