I could write up a huge post about how good it is and all the nice features, but I’ll still reach the same conclusion so I may as well save you the time and pain of reading it all and just say this:
Go get Windows Media Player 11 pronto.
Very long story short, it’s the best media player I’ve used to date (yes, way better iTunes, WinAmp, WMP10, VLC, etc). Instead of having the flat file name-based hierarchical format of media players today, WMP11 actually (successfully) integrates a lot of visual features (no I’m not talking about stupid little visualizations). Combined with a good codec pack, WMP11 is pretty much all you need for all your multimedia needs, be it music or videos.
If it weren’t for the fact that I have an iPod and you still can’t sync with Windows Media Player, I would’ve dumped iTunes/Quicktime by now. If only…
