One of the multimedia applications that have accompanied us for several decades has been the Windows Media player, the one in which we watched our movies, we listened to melodies and we liked to play with the graphic sequences of waves, candles, etc; so that based on each reproduction it was dynamized..
But with the new updates of Windows 10 little by little it has been losing the use of Windows Media Player and has been replaced by new apps like Groove or VLC. Currently Microsoft continues distributing Windows Media Player, whose current version is 12, which can play much more music and videos than previous versions including Flip Video and songs that are not protected in the iTunes library.
By using this new version it will be possible
- Manage the collection of digital multimedia content.
- Synchronize digital media files using a portable device.
- Buy online digital media content and more usage options.
The Windows Media Player 12 integrates compatibility with various video and audio formats while allowing us to synchronize music, videos and photos or transmit multimedia content through streaming to many devices which follows the trend of today in day..
The Windows Media Player 12 by default is included in the clean installations of Windows 10 and updates to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.
