Default Re: WMP12 - what have they done

Don't mind nekro. He is Polish. Bit of a temper. Something about him invading Germany...

Anyway, I like WMP, especially the fact it has most codecs builtin with 7 and it's library management is pretty good except for this pictures business and the playback quality is better than most.

VLC and GOM are good fall backs, but the quality is pretty ordinary. ::

That is true. Maybe they will improve on it in the future.

If you are running multi screen and have WMP maxed on the 2nd, then do something on the first does it still come out of maximised? That one aspect keeps me away from ever using it as a video player.

Well after using it now for a bit I have come to like WMP12 and have started to use it a lot, but I still use MPC-HC for some stuff.

It stays maximised/fullscreen unless you maximise the app on the other screen. That's what Ive found anyway.

WMP is the one MS program that I will never get used to it does everything in a retarded way that i hate and want to kick ravenously for several hours on end until my foot has become a bloody mess of pulp urine and 5% real orange juice.

Continue discussion.

Libraries are pointless....

I bet im the only one left in the world that uses nStant Media!


QMP - Music
MPC-HC - videos while at desk, default player
nStantMedia - Not at desk, plays everything MPC-HC does
XBMC - Livingroom
TotalMedia - TV
