    Microsoft officially released Windows Media Player 10, which sports many new features and a new user interface.

    This release hosts a new User Interface that is cleaner and lesser cluttered, but the basic layout appears to be mostly the same. The player comes with a default skin not based on any previous versions of Media Player. The skin, which is mostly of a glassy-blue gradient has received many negative reactions as Microsoft seems to be 'going blue' on most of their recently released applications.

    Microsoft has shipped the player which integrates to online music stores. Not only is MSN's Music store available, but also a variety of their stores include Napster, Wal-Mart and Music-Match. This is Microsoft's first step in going online for music, after Apple's footsteps with iTunes.

    Microsoft also promises easy Syncing procedures with many portable devices, and they have announced future compatibility with soon to come Windows Mobile–based Portable Media Centers, which includes Creative's next generation of audio/video player, the Nomad 'Zen'.

    Folder Synchronization is featured in this release, which basically monitors your choice of folders which contain your media for changes in files, which will automatically reflect to the built-in playlist. Also, as we mentioned, possibly one of the most spectacular feature of this new version is the ability to encode music into high bitrate mp3 format.

    here's a sneak of errors..

    here are the details..


    very soon find new bugs.
    In a very sloppy test for the final version of Windows Media Player 10, four bugs were found already, catching much of the public by surprise. Let’s take an in-depth look at the first four bugs.

    The first bug in the series is the Error message when you try to synchronize video files in Windows Media Player 10. When you try to synchronize some Motion Pictures Expert Group 2 (MPEG2) or Audio Video Interleaved (AVI) video files in Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 to one of the following devices, the video file is not copied to the devices. The list of devices is first a portable Microsoft Media Center device, a Microsoft Pocket PC device, a smart phone device, and a video-capable device. To solve this problem, Microsoft suggests you contact your portable device vendor or decoder/codec vendor to inquire about the availability of an update that supports the conversion functionality in Windows Media Player 10.

    The second bug is the WMAPro content that contains SAP with digital output plays for several seconds and then stops playing in Windows Media Player 10 The cause of this is When you play Microsoft Windows Media Audio Professional (WMAPro) content in Microsoft Windows Media Player 10, and the WMAPro content requires Output Protection Level (OPL) 200 (SAP with digital output), the content plays for several seconds and then stops playing. Microsoft suggests that you play WMAPro content that requires OPL 200 to a device that does not support S/PDIF.

    The third bug is the "A security problem occurred" error message when you try to play content on a secure Web site in Windows Media Player 10. To resolve this problem, Microsoft suggests that you save the content to your local computer before you try to play it. To do this, right-click the content on the secure Web page, and then click Save Target As.

    The forth and final bug (so far) is the Caption text is missing from the caption bar when you play a media clip in Windows Media Player 10 To solve this problem Microsoft suggests that you:

    1. Start Windows Media Player 10.
    2. On the Play menu, point to Captions and Subtitles, and then click On if Available.
    3. Try playing the media clip again.
    4. If the problem still occurs, click Options on the Tools menu.
    5. On the Security tab, click to select the Show local captions when present check box, and then click OK.
