Over the time I was not posting Microsoft publicly released WMP 10 Technical Beta. This is for Windows XP only and continues to build on the features were WMP 9 left off. Of course this is beta software, so be careful when installing this.
NOTE: It’s a good idea to reboot after the install even though the installer does not force you to.
“This is a technical beta release. Before you decide whether to install this software, it is important to understand that the technical beta release does not have the stability of released Microsoft software. You might encounter problems with this release of the software that could possibly result in a loss or destruction of data. This release is not for production use, and we suggest that you run the software in a test environment or back up your existing data, including music and video files, before you install and run the software on your computer.”
