Introducing the Windows Media Player

With Windows XP, a Windows multimedia system takes charge of virtually every aspect of your computer's sound and video. Consider just some of the multimedia-based capabilities of the Windows Media Player:

  • Plays audio CDs

  • Copies audio CDs

  • Organizes your entire library of audio and video files

  • Generates playlists, lists of your favorite songs no matter their source

  • Plays Internet-based video and sound, including the de facto standard format of digital audio, MP3

  • Supports streaming video and streaming audio, the process of playing video and sound clips from the Internet as they download to your computer from the Internet instead of having to wait for the entire clip to download before playing

  • Downloads music on your computer to a portable music player, such as an MP3 player

  • Plays high-quality DVD movies on your DVD-ROM drive if your computer has one

  • Automatically self-upgrades the Windows Media Player when an update is available on the Internet
