Seems like its always forced on me and its annoying. The interface has been the same since i can remember. They need to make this simpler and redesign.

Media Player 12

about Windows Media Player · · Helpful Not helpful

You wouldn't think, after all this time of making media players, microsoft would have trouble making one which indexed your library. You would also think that they would be able to give accurate information for song names when you update from the internet.

WMP 12 does neither of these. It's also slow & unintuitive. It also shows half my songs as zero bytes (if you don't chose all the options windows wants you to chose it doesn't really work properly).

Why can't I put the songs in title order and then start typing a track name to skip to it? because windows won't let me (that's a fairly specific person gripe).

I give it 3 out of 10.

Windows Media Player 10 was the culmination. From the point afterwards, all versions are getting worse.
WMP 12 is laggy and unintuitive.

Agreed!

It's decent but certainly not desireable. It sucks that you have to download codecs, and it's missing simple things like cross-fade, lyrics, etc..If say, your on a MAC or a Linux machine, I would think 998 people out of 1,000 WOULD NOT go out of there way to look for WMP. I favor clementine, pretty smooth and powerful.
