I love it, it just uses too much memory (slowing down other programs). It also has a habit of running in the background when I think I've closed it.

On Win7 is good enough

The version installed on Win7 is good enough: the player is more minimal and fast, even if the multimedia catalogue is so confusing :S

It can also stream to console devices, with WMP version 11+

You can see how here

Its a pretty good player, but in my opinion the older versions worked the best, the newer versions seem to take up more processing and just caused problems every time I used it. There were plenty of times that I could not get it to play my videos, so I went with media player classic.
