Default DO NOT DOWNLOAD WINDOWS MEDIA v11

So I get an automatic update for windows media, sure thing.

Starts downloading windows media 11. Righteous. It was an OK player before, they have added something on to make it better, right? Wrong.

The new version is shit for one simple reason, they don't let you deselect the "album" column. It makes no sense. Why make that mandatory? Why should I HAVE to see what album the song is on? Why are you FORCING ME?! :stressed:

I have a lot of assorted artists, so now, instead of being able to see 50 song titles neatly stacked on top of each other like in the previous version, the new format only shows like 20. My library is now 3 times longer to scroll. It just ticks me off.

If you have version 10, keep it.

I wasn't surprised either, and I don't think anyone who reads will be... but it's a warning nevertheless.

So, why are you using windows media for music instead of say... winamp, in the first place?

That's a very good question. I think because I had a lot of trouble with moving the files i downloaded using k-lite to the winamp folder. I have winamp, i just don't use it. the files would just go right into windows media, making it so easy.

Just drag and drop into a winamp playlist and you're all set. Heck save the playlist even and don't report everthing you do to Microsoft.

You can also use the library function on winamp to search your entire hard drive for media, then move your entire library into a play list, then just delete and re-save the playlist everytime you hit something you don't want on it.

My problem with Media player lies in the fact that it's "Codec Download Service" sucks. I'm trying my damndest to find some .avi codecs right now, which I would have thought media player would have played 'out of box'.

I used to use DivX for my vids, but my issue with DivX is that it seems so damned bloated. It slows everything down way too much. Media Player doesn't tend to do that, unless there's a problem.

So, any suggestions? Should I keep trying to drum up codecs that Media Player is supposedly downloading already, or should I just go with another program?
