Download Windows Media Player to update your current version.
The multimedia player sports a completely overhauled user interface that's very similar to the Vista design. In addition, the new version provides cover pictures and song information.
The player converts music files with surround sound into the WMA Pro format with the click of a button. The integrated synchronisation feature lets you more easily exchange data with mobile devices. Microsoft has integrated access to the online music service URGE into the player. That way the user can pull in songs directly via the tool.
Windows Media Player 11 checks the authenticity of your operating system during the installation. For users of Win 98/ME/2000 the compatible Windows Media Player 9 is still available to download.
Verdict: The Media Player looks great in the trendy new Vista design. A great new feature has also been added with the inclusion of the new music library.
