    seems the same as WMP9, except it's alot chunkier, a thing which I detest, and It still doesn't play movies in their correct aspect ratio alot of the time, and is just generally jank.

    I prefer using "BSPlayer" from the Kazaalite codec pack for movies, and Winamp for mp3's

    Also, fuck knows what the rectangular red squared image is in the corner.. it's damn annoying though!

    It's tiny & don't hog system resources & it works on XP.

    felix ...in simple terms please ...why is it hogging resources?
    seems to work fast and efficient. whenever i'm on this site it is playing random tracks from my collection without slowing anything down.
    are you sure these are not just personal prefferences as i'd take some convincing that anything would improve were i to change.

    its all fine and dandy when you install software but when you need to/ feel you want to uninstall software a uninstall feature would be handy. microsoft = wankers :rolleyes:

    i hate the way they clutter up these simple proggys with such utter shit... i just want it to play music/video files (and i don't even use media player for those!).

    bloated crapware if you ask me.

    It really really really sucks... It began to fuck up all the media files I played from the internet. And it's really just the same as 9... stick to 9 or download music jukebox to play music files... that's pretty good.
