I would like to point out to review number 132 from Thomas. He mentioned Nvidia Pure video decoder in his system. I believe there is a lot to answer to the capabilities and problems of WMP 11.
I have currently removed Nvidia graphic card from my system in order to upgrade to new one and had to wait on delivery for a while as my daughter snatched mine for gaming on her system. Believe it or not my WMP11 no longer streaming video of the internet despite the fact that my system still working with its own Intel graphic chipset 946GZ or similar and provides all normal browsing with decent graphics. If all of you carefully check the Windows path in WMP 11 it leads to one of those plug-ins like Corel, Nvidia, Ati and couple others. I believe this is how it works together.
Microsoft leaving some things for others to take care of. In this instance all of those codecs and converters of files as modern Desktops and Laptops come prepacked with graphic cards. There is no need for Microsoft to extend the size of its WMP 11 to the point where it takes hours to download.
This is only an opinion with some answers for myself aswell. All the best to everyone on this forum.
