Win7 comes with WMP12, against my better judgement (all the previous versions were awful) I’ve been experimenting with it simply so that I do not end up cluttering the hard drive with extra apps (Winamp in this case).  There are a couple of annoyances in the way that it works, but the one that sends me in to an incandescent rage is the fact that my mouse scroll wheel does not turn the volume up & down.  A cursory search finds requests for this function but no plugins that I have detected so far…

Movie playback with the appropriate Win7 64-bit codecs is good, and the player interface is not too offensive, though very similar to that of the iPhone.  Sadly most of the decent visualisations I have come across are ported from Winamp and are commercial variants.

The library interface is confusing at first, however, as I store my media logically, the Folder option seems to work best.  I will soldier on some more for now, but I suspect Winamp/Media Player Classic will resume their usual homes on my system in the long run.
