    Not too excited tbh. MS can never offer the level of options, features, settings, tweakability that 3rd party MPs come with. They dumb down their MPs to the most basic functions and will choke you with DRM restrictions. Its why 3rd party MPs will always be superior to whatever MS can come up with.

    Will it have the option to take a screenshot of a video you are playing with it?

    I'm going to go ahead and review it now:

    Bloated mess that remains inferior to Winamp. Still. In 2021.

    IT was always trash compared to any free app . Maybe that will change ? I guess there are many average joes that use it...

    It amazes how they couldn't put in simple features from many free apps . Like subtitle support struggled over the year ( not sure it is working now at all ) .

    VLC should just be included with Windows - it's lightweight, reliable, no BS, tons of options

    Sorry, i didn´t explain myself properly.

    I know how to do that, what i really want is a downsized version of MD on the taskbar when using it, that allows me to change music directly from there.

    There´s an way to do this on W10 but it requires some tweaking.

    Thanks for the help anyway!

    Most people are still stuck to CODEC PACKS players and VLC....etc....

    i expect the new media player does better than the above....mentioned codec packs

    Question is, do the VLC developers want to be
    embraced, extended and extinguished?
