I dislike wmp11 because:

1. It randomly displays incorrect album art, nearly every other cover is shown as Siren:Roxy Music! There doesn't seem to be an easy way round this.

2. No track timings are displayed in the list pane.

If I delete in add/remove does it automatically revert to wmp10?

I don't like Album art full stop as i haven't found a program that profeses to be able to find me some then gets it wrong.
Even Sony's Sonic stage is useless at this task..

I found WMP 11 not to my liking but things move on and i think uninstalling said program will only delay the inevitable. :(

wmp 11, for me works well except for a few niggles.

If you want to remove it, follow Microsoft's method;

WMP, Just a waste of time , you get that many problems with it,And if you dont have a proper decoder you cannot watch DVDs, Try this click here Plays any type of DVD and its free.

Thanks, but we really mainly use wmp as a music jukebox as you can simply right-click the music folder and play it all however you like.
Don't generally play dvd's.

I tried wmp11 - hated it for the reasons given above and uninstalled (add/remove prgrams reverts to wmp10) then thought about it and gave it another go.

For the art stuff Cut-and-paste the jpg for to the slot in wmp11. It's a pian to start with, but if you keep it up to date it's OK.

Yes, it's a pity you can't turn-off the Album Art option (greyed-out) I don't really want it anyway.

I Library go to "View Options" (left of the serach panel) and select "Details". It turns off the album art.
