Welcome to the forums, wiz1.

Do you want to add all your videos , musics and pictures to WMP, or in other words do you want WMP to arrange all your videos, musics and pictures ? Yes it is possible.

Take the example of music. Open Media Center, and click on Music library .Media Player Libraries-1.jpg
Now right click on an empty space, in the context menu click on manage library.

Wait some times to get those files added, and then open WMP, and see the change in music tab.
Do the same procedure for pictures and videos in their respective libraries in Media center.

Doing it in media center will add everything to not only media center, but also to WMP.

Not exactly, bot somehow similar may be done. To add a desired video folder to WMP, right click on video, and click on manage video library.
