has anybody got the great new windows media player.
let me be the first to say that its the best yet.
it came out yesterday to download.
its not a beta version.
if anybody else has it can they please tell everyone else what they like about it and what new features they have found out!
(i personally know that there is more to it than what i see so i would appreciate it if others tell of hidden features.)

Thanks.

Its ok. Plays CDs, mp3, DVD, radio, makes toast and cups of tea - does what it says.

One good feature i liked was - bung a CD in and it shows you the cover and a blurb about the CD and offers samples of other albums you might like based on that CD.

I seem to recall reading that WMP9 is not compatible with WIN98. There are two versions, one for XP and one for WIN98SE and higher.

Win98SE is there. But I don't know if this will work with Win98. As you say, installing the wrong version could cause problems. As I am running Win98, I shall stay with WMP7. It does everything I need anyway.

I think Me users should hold fire until "northamuk" tells of his experiences.
