Windows Media Player 12

Recommended Posts

Do we have any beta testers in here? :unsure: If the beta version of Windows Media Player 12 can run on Vista and XP without compatibility issues there's still hope...

 

Edit: apparently one needs Windows 7 RC to even download the beta.

Edit 2: Don't try this at home but here's a work-around that can trick WMP 12 into running on a Vista OS. It's probably not worth the risk. Not just is it a work-around it also a beta we're talking about. So this is a read only: http://www.techmixer.com/download-windows-...r-12-for-vista/

I believe wmp12 is by default installed in 7. I read something to that effect. At least it was for me. I expected it to just have 11.

 

Will there ever be a WMP12 for xp and Vista or will they just update 11?

So, how many of you are going to $hell out when RC ends?

 

I'm about 90% sure I will, i've been using the RC exclusively and not sure if I can stand going back to xp. lol

They caught me in a trap (Didn't do the same with the Vista Beta I had previously, was quite happy to go back to XP).

 

though the predicted price in AU is very offputting >:( "Not Happy Jan" and they wonder why sooo many people pirate windows.

 

Pro: AU$449

Ultimate: AU$469

version 11 and 12 isn't that much different. as the Link says, just a few features removed, added more Codec support, and some bugs fixed.
