Windows Media Player is the multimedia software developed by Microsoft to provide users with the ability to view multimedia content, both from the Internet and from their hard drive.
Windows Media Player 11 gives you more music and more choices, and for the first time makes it possible to sync high-quality music, video, and photos to the latest portable devices.
Overall, Windows Media Player 11 is a huge improvement over previous Windows Media Player versions, though it still falls short of the competition in a few key areas.
If you've bought into the Microsoft-oriented music world in any way, however--perhaps with a Media Center PC, Portable Media Center device, or by using a WMA-compatible online music service--you simply must upgrade to WMP 10.
This release offers major improvements for discovering and buying, and subscribing to content online, sports an improved UI, and integrates nicely with a coming generation of portable devices.
