    Pros: Preinstalled, system app, plays some video and some audio files, since most of us have .mp3 and .wma files it shouldn't be a problem, it runs smoother and faster than most media players.
    Cons: No aditional codecs, updates once in 4 years or so, some .mp3 files don't work well and seeking is not supported on some, the interface is a beautiful mess.

    Personally I never use this player simply because I run into trouble whenever I like a song it is not played, because the encoding is not supported or the seek is not supported, or it stumbles onto a movie it doesn't play or it tries to install some external codec from Microsoft that takes up a lot of space and can only play one type of files. Microsoft still has a lot of work to do on this media player in order to make it work properly and without glitches. The interface is fine, maybe some minor adjustments but the functionality is a mess to its core.

    Why does Windows not have the codec for the player of Music Stream Radio?

    VLC Media Player is a lot better than this. But still good.
