Windows 7: How much better will sound be in Windows 7

14 Feb 2009   #11

windows 7

I have send the feed back for windows as well as for wmp 12. Be sure to get regular updates for windows through windows update. Maybe they will fix the
patches sooner or later. One more thing, while playing any DVD Movie, you cannot drag the slider to the desired place, it won't just move, and still stick
to its normal playing speed only. Have you notice it? If so, is there any solution ?, While playing thorugh VLC, you can fast forward or reverse according to your wish.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

Media Player 12 does not allow you to change aspect ratio 4:3 to 16:9, this is the major downfall within Windows Media Player

Use another media player. Windows Media Player has always been limited to certain features.

Surely it's about time that MS added simple things like aspect ratios etc though. It is on it's 12th incarnation after all

At least there's VLC to pick up the slack.

Actually VLC has gone down in quality with its latest release. It doesnt support a lot of formats, it crashes, I dont know what is wrong with them. Like hybridfan, THE choice is Media Player Classic. It may look ugly but I believe it is much more powerful than VLC.
