Default WMP12 - what have they done

OK, WMP12 is a rather huge step back compared to WMP11.

1) they removed advanced tag editor
2) It seems to have issues with large libraries
3) If you "delete" something in library, but not removed from PC, there is no option in player to get it back, before you could select add removed items, and scan the library again, seems to be missing now
4) can't stop it adding all the pictures in my picture folder, even when removing pictures from the side menu it still keeps adding all of them
5) why are there pictures in WMP? isn't windows live gallery for that
6) having sync issues with WMP12 and WM6.5
7) likes to resize folder.jpg album art from higher-res to 200x200

2 is just plain garbage dude.

Had the exact same issues and with media center tied into wmp12 its harder to deal with it.

11 has issues with large libraries to cuz i have about 83,000 songs in my library and wmp likes to stop responding when calculating the stats which is a big pain.

I like Rhapsody and even kmp player and songbird now.

Maybe they fixed some stuff with the final builds who knows.

I've never upgraded from WMP 10, because I didn't see the point. I have other programs that I much, much prefer over it for each type of media file.

Default Re: WMP12 - what have they done

The other day I accidentally opened Windows Media Player and was greeted by the Media Player configuration wizard thing.

I'd had windows installed for like 6 months and never even run WMP.

I use Media Player Classic Home Cinema for videos and Foobar 2000 for music.

WMP is pretty awesome in Win7.

If you get the right codecs installed, it'll play all your files for you so it makes MPC sort of redundant. I prefer having MPC just because of my familiarity, but WMP12 is pretty good
