Chapter 30. Playing CDs and DVDs > Using Windows Media Player

Using Windows Media Player

For most users, the media player of choice is the one that comes free with Microsoft Windows. Windows Media Player (WMP) is a great little program you can use for many purposes—playing CDs and DVDS, ripping and burning CDs, listening to Internet radio broadcasts, and watching video webcasts. It works similarly to most other media players, so if you know how to use WMP, you should be able to figure out any other media player program.

note

The latest and greatest version of WMP is Windows Media Player 10, available for free download from the Windows Media website (www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/). WMP 10 is a lot easier to use than previous versions and offers built-in MP3 playback and recording, which makes it worth upgrading to.
