Good media player?

gogwmosFebruary 20, 2012

I have Win XP and I tried to download MSN media player on my new laptop because I am used to it. It denied the download because I need Windows 7.

What is a good media player that is compatible with XP?

Windows Media Player 11, Win Amp Full, and VLC, are all pretty good ones. Avoid Real Player as it configures deeply and hogs resources.

These and more are available at Filehippo.


Here is a link that might be useful: Filehippo.

All right, it is downloaded and I have many songs that I downloaded from Kazaa. When I go to play them, I get a pop up saying

"The owner of the protected content you are trying to access requires you to first upgrade some of the MS digital rights management (DRM) components on your computer.

When you click OK, a unique identifier and a DRM security file are sent to a MS server on the internet. The file is replaced with a customized version that contains your unique identifier.

This increases the level of protection provided by DRM."

Then I click OK and I get this:
"The security upgrade cannot be performed because the server is not available. Try again later."

I have tried this over and over, same result since last night.

Any ideas?
