Windows media player 11 Old and New Layout

31 posts in this topic

which one is better?

the first one is from vista 5231 (the first wmp11 build) and the second one is the current release for xp...

let's choose :)

my opinion: the old one is better because it just fits in windows xp and the new one is black and doesn't fit in windows xp..

I agree about the dark colours not suiting XP- they should change the XP version to suit.

As for the layout, the newer one surely. One major advantage for me is having seperate repeat and shuffle buttons- both incorporated into one button was a pain!

I prefer the new layout and colour. Somehow, the black WMP11 looks nice on my taskbar :yes: .

For XP the old one looks better, but on Vista the new one looks amazing.

the vistateam skin made a skin of wmp11 for wmp10 and it still works in wmp11. hehe. pretty cool. its nice to be able to switch back and forth just with a click of a button.

Well I kinda think the new black is sexay.

Plus the new library is a godsend. So so much better than what they had in WMP 9 & 10. If nothing else it's the reason you should upgrade.

Erm, Color Change has been in versions 9 AND 10, but what I think MS should do, is add an option to the Color Chooser to choose between a Dark mode (like the current one) or a Light Mode!

I like the new design more. But like y'all.. yeah I hope MS improve the color changer. Right now its just hard getting the color to match certain desktop feel let alone having the default black on a blue xp theme. :pinch:

the new design is definitely more slick, doesnt make any difference to me seeing as WMP is the ****tiest media player around.

I like the new one, fits in well with my theme i have, whitch is a vista theme from vista trans pack .4.0 but its all onthe user, and what he/she thinks, and on the curent theme of the desktop

Plus microsoft's been going with blue for way to long, basicly since microsoft windows debut in 1985. Ii think its about time for a change.

BTW, i think the blue repesented the sky outside the "Windows"

Like the blue one better...

Unless MS makes a NEW XP Theme which is black!

I prefer this new black/blue UI and I like the color chooser because I prefer darker colors, but I do agree that they could make it better by adding the option of lighter colors as well.

That's not going to happen anytime soon. Your best bet would be to use one of the Vista themes that had the original start button before the Orb made its debut. I'm using a 2.0 version of KoL's VistaXP msstyle and it looks great

Most definitely the newer one. It looks very polished. And since my theme is black, it fits perfectly.

There's nothing wrong about Michael Jackson as an artist. How he is as a person doesn't affect his musical knowledge.
