    Windows 7 Build 7000 Media Player

    Paul Thurrott has written a review of the new Windows 7 Build 7000. In this review he discusses the new Windows Media Player

    "Windows Media Player is mostly improved over its predecessors, but you no longer configure "watch folders" from within the application (nor can you manually search for new content via the familiar F3 keyboard shortcut). Instead, Microsoft expects users to manage this type of thing via Libraries. This didn't work properly in previous builds, but in the beta, when I add specific folders of music to my Music Library, for example, that music is picked up by Media Player and organized accordingly. (HomeGroup integration also lets you play back content from other PCs on the network.) I haven't been able to test the Play To feature yet; this will eventually let WMP control play back of media to smart connected devices, which sounds interesting.

    Windows Media Player now correctly picks up content configured in your media-oriented Libraries.

    Media Center got mildly updated in the post-M3 builds but hasn't changed since. There's a nice new Get Started experience that helps you get up and running quickly. WordPad and Paint haven't changed from what I can see.

    Windows Media Center isn't evolving as quickly as I'd like, but it does make it easier for users to get up and running now.

    The new Windows Media Center Now Playing view resembles the Zune PC software.

    It has to be pointed out that the EQ still sucks, it is hard to find the "enhancements", and performance is VERY bad, however all the new features are welcome if performance is enhanced.

    Dear Norm Cameron

    I used DVD Cutter to scrap a few portion of the movie form a DVD. When I use open with option on that small created file i.e., .vob (DVD Movie File) and use to play it with WMP in windows 7, it shows the following error:

    "WMP cannot skep to the requested location on the DVD".

    Is there a solution with anyone ?

    Thanks in advance
