  • Blog Post: WMP FireFox Plug-in at 6.1M Downloads

    I just checked over with the Port 25 guys, and we are at 6.1 million downloads for the FireFox plug-in as of yesterday - nice! Congrats again to the team for pulling this together!
  • Blog Post: Vista performance & tying up WMP loose ends

    I just read on Steve Rowe's blog about a performance update coming for file copy in Vista. This is great news - copying files has been pretty frustrating for me on Vista, and hopefully this makes it better. Also, wrapping up some loose ends, the WMP OCX Firefox Plug-in documentation was posted a while...
  • Blog Post: WMP is going on Safari...

    It looks like Apple has listed our WMP Firefox plug-in on their Safari page… I sure hope they tested that scenario before they listed it… http://www.apple.com/safari/download/plugins.html If anyone’s tried this and gotten it to work (or not), I’d be curious to hear!

    If you want to add audio/video playback capabilities to your Windows application, you have several options to choose from. For tighter control, you can take advantage of the API exposed in lower-level infrastructure components, like DirectShow, the Format SDK, or Media Foundation. If you just want generic...
  • Blog Post: Who’s got the better WMP – Vista or XP?

    By now, you’ve probably downloaded Beta 2 of WMP 11 on your Windows XP system. Is it better? There are quite a few blogs already debating that topic, but if you ask my opinion – it is. This is the first version of WMP that I can actually use to manage my music collection instead of relying on Windows...
