14. Windows Media Player

Chapter 14. Windows Media Player

Most of the programs Microsoft includes with your operating system—WordPad, Outlook Express, and Backup—tend to be pretty limited in what they can do: write a simple document, send some email, make you think you ought to pay for a better backup program. But to the company’s great credit, Windows Media Player, which comes with XP, is better than decent. It’s a powerful multimedia jukebox that lets you play and burn music CDs, listen to Internet radio stations, and even watch Web videos and DVDs.

The downside to Windows Media Player is that many of its multiple talents come buried inside a maze of dialog boxes and menu choices. And you might not be aware of other programs that can make Media Player even more useful.
