Windows Media Player is a media player for the Windows operating system. Media Player can be used for playing all sorts of multimedia files and media management. Media Player also supports audio CD ripping, synchronization with portable devices, advanced playback features, media streaming, and various skins.
The first version of the application was released with Windows 3.0, and it has been a default media player on the Windows platform until recently. It’s worth mentioning that even though Windows Media Player isn’t the default player on later versions of Windows, it’s still available by default or as an optional feature that you need to manually add.
