Hi Nigel,

There's no option to uncheck this

There's always this - if it works on 7 ( that tweak I mean - the app. seems to work perfectly )

I don't have the same look as yours, have the old looking options window. I've looked everywhere to try to get access to uncheck it. Can't find it. Even opened WMP with RUn as admin. The WMP 12 privacy statement under the customer experience improvement program states that: Prerelease versions of Windows Media Player come with CEIP turned on. It says you can turn it off but the method does nothing.

You can however, go to File in the menu bar and check "Work Offline".

Perhaps we''l be able to find the registry key for it - if we dig around enough.

Yes, I'm sure. I'm sure they made this inaccessible on purpose.

Windows Media Player 12 Privacy Statement
Working offline (disconnecting from the Internet) is the most secure mode in which to use the Player. Keep in mind, however, that many Player features are unavailable when you work offline. For example, if you attempt to access an online store when working offline, the Player displays a page informing you that the computer must be connected to the Internet to use this feature. Other features that require an Internet connection include:
  • Acquiring content
  • Retrieving and displaying media information, including album art
  • Finding, viewing, and updating album information
  • Finding and viewing DVD information
  • Acquiring and restoring media usage rights
  • Downloading codecs, visualizations, portable device drivers, plug-ins, and skins
  • Checking for updates to the Player, and performing security upgrades
  • Setting the secure clock on portable devices based on Windows Media DRM 10 for Portable Devices
  • Browsing Windows Media Player Web Help

norm you beat me to it...lol

it seems that it has to do with files that have metadata that is bigger than 16kb...
hmmm

so now its a for sure that this 7000 beta wont be the one released to the general public (unless they dont count this patch (for the CTP beta) as another build) huh??

yes if you have metadata thats bigger than 16kb then WMP will corrupt the 1st 10 seconds of your song....
