Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP is officially released

Microsoft recently released it’s flagship media player, Windows Media Player 11, for Windows XP. I’ve been using the beta version of Window Media Player 11 for a while now and it seems to be pretty well built. I particularly like the new user interface that it comes with. It’s kind of Vista’ish but that looks something different than the blue Windows XP world.

I like the concept that there is no Stop button rather it just has the Pause and Play buttons, which is one less confusion to the user. Also, it has support for URGE, the Microsoft version of iTunes Store and it seems like they both (Windows Media Player 11 and URGE) play well together.

The drawback that I could see is that there is no support for podcasters and that’s a pretty big miss. But if you don’t really care about podcasting then you wouldn’t be disappointed with this new Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP.

Download the Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP from here.

PS: As a Microsoft standard these days for downloading any softwares this download also requires a “Windows Genuine Advantage” check.
