Windows Media Player Plus! 2.6

A Windows Media Player plug-in
Designed for Windows Media Player, Windows Media Player Plus! is a plugin that enhances the user experience by offering a few extra features, such as a tag editor. It can be seamlessly set up, even by less skilled users.

After a brief installation procedure, you can access the Settings window of the app, in order to configure some options. For instance, you can enable a real-time search mode, disable group headers in the Library pane and add disc-number support to the media library.

In addition, you can change the media format displayed in the title bar (Advanced Tile Formatting or ATF), integrate the tag editor into the context menu, as well as make the app restore the last active playlist at startup and all plug-ins after a crash.

"Party Shuffle" is a feature that involves a dynamic playlist which automatically gets random songs based on a user-defined location. As the name implies, this option comes in handy at parties when you don't have enough time at your disposal to play the DJ. Last but not least, you can send information on the currently playing song to Windows Live Messenger and edit the ATF.

The plugin does not put a strain on the computer's overall performance, as it uses a very low quantity of CPU and system memory. It worked smoothly throughout our evaluation, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. To sum it up, Windows Media Player Plus! supplies users with an extra set of features to improve Windows Media Player.
