    Didn't Windows Media Player 10 JUST come out? Media Player 11 beta is downloadable. Perplexed

    I quite like Windows Media Player 11 Beta, I like it a lot better than Windows Media Player 10, mainly because of the way you can browse the current media files on the computer.

    If by JUST, you mean almost 2 years ago.

    I guess 11 is the nice looking black one, which I have at home....hehe

    I like versions with years stead of numbers, easier to follow Smiley

    WMP11 is a good deal better than WMP10, very sleek, some things need tweaked but its still beta after all

    You are sure behind the times. Two years is an ETERNITY in this industry. I already have the Windows Media Player 12 alpha bits in my hands. It blows everything out of the water.

    But, alas, you guys will always be behind. Maybe you'll see it in 2009?

    Does 12 have a good library? One thing about 10, and now I remember 11, and also iTunes, is that it doesn't have a good time with large libraries. It doesn't organize them well, you can't have a list of albums, and click a (+) to spread the album open. This is one reason why I like MusicMatch 10, it holds my 46,000+ songs(99.99% full albums only) in an easy to use interface.

    I have a question. How in the world did you get Media Player 12? I would love to see it, but it is really hard to believe that you have it. Proof would be nice Smiley

    I was being a bit sarcastic there...I just remember installing 10 a while back and watching it crash at the weirdest times. I don't think they have a 12 yet...but I could be wrong. I haven't looked at 11, though, but I hope I can at some point soon.

    Do I detect new visualisations in WMP11?


    (from here - this visualisation doesn't seem to be in the public betas though)

    One thing I miss in WMP11 is the tree-view of the library, on the left side. That was really useful for dragging/dropping tracks and generally organising things. Hopefully they'll put in an option to switch that back on.
    That, and some buttons to whisk me down to albums/artists/songs beginning, for example, with S.
