    Personally, I like Media Player Classic - Home Cinema (Home MPC-HC). It's open source, light weight, and can play any media file I've seen.

    WMC was handy for me as it drives my TV tuner card.

    Yeah, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema and Winamp still serve all my media needs the way I like it, lol.

    Did fire up WMP though and it seemed the same as the Win 7 version.

    win 10 Insider

    Just tried playing some older mpg files today with WMP and only got sound. Haven't had time to investigate but sounds like codec(s) missing? This machine has had a new 10240 install yesterday so it is a bit slimmed down.
