WMP allows users to play audio CDs, audio and video files, listen to Internet radios, transfer files from and to a mobile device, and burn your own audio CDs. What is appealing about this package is that it combines all the aforementioned features in a single software application.
Since Windows Media Player has been specifically designed for Microsoft Windows by the Windows team, a great degree of stability and compatibility can be expected.
